Come Worship with Us
We invite you to join us for worship every Sunday at 11am. We broadcast Live on our Facebook Page as well as in person at 223 S Hallett St in Medical Lake WA.
Currently we worship inside our building and follow WA state protocols. We invite you to join us as you feel led. In person we ask your help in following our safety guidelines as we maintain physical distancing, wear masks and use air purifiers in the sanctuary. Ushers will be available to guide you on Sunday mornings. We celebrate Holy Communion weekly and invite you to bring your own elements to partake since we will not be directly handing out bread and wine to folks.
Meet Our Pastor
We are delighted to welcome our new pastors! Pastors Carol and Greg Yeager, who come to us from North Carolina. They bring humor, wit, and an ability to connect with their congregants. Music is important aspect of their ministry. Children are welcome, and will enjoy a Children's Sermon every Sunday. Pastor Carol also serves our country as member of the Air Force Reserves. We feel blessed to have them leading St. John's into the future!

A beautiful and important tradition in our church is bringing the light of the Holy Spirit and the cross to the altar. Middle School and High School students are invited to learn and participate as acolytes during worship services.

Located in beautiful Medical Lake, St John's Lutheran Church offers congregants an opportunity to participate in a traditional service wrapped in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Lutherans teach that we are who we are because of God's grace- that is, God's love for us without our deserving it in any way. That is shown most clearly in the good news that we are saved only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. All are invited to participate in Communion. We take care of each other here at St. John's. We take care of each other and our community through physical acts and prayerful acts. We believe in the power of prayer. The power of prayer and genuine love for Jesus and his message for us to love each other creates an accepting and welcoming place for all.
Church Office Hours:
Mondays and Wednesdays 8:30-1:00.
Sundays at 11:00
Can't catch the service? Watch Live on Facebook ! You can find us at
