Come see what we’re all about.
Our building was closed due to COVID-19 but is beginning to open. St. John’s remains active. We are utilizing technology to stay connected virtually for worship, Sunday School, confirmation, and adult education. Our Preschool is open using strict safety protocols. We have begun in-person worship!
We have happily welcomed new congregation members during this unusual time. If you would like to learn more about worship and ministries at St. John’s, please contact the office.
Walking into a new church can be baffling; no wonder many are uneasy on their first visit! Most of us at St. John’s have had this first-visit experience and we’ll try to make your visit a warm one. Because of that, we will be in the narthex to welcome you, not to overwhelm you. We’ll offer a smile and answer any question you might have.
There are three entrances to our church building, you may enter through any of them. We offer three different worship services, two on Sunday and one during the week. As you enter the sanctuary for worship, you will be handed everything you need for that service.
Following the 8:30 a.m. worship services, coffee and treats (Perks and Pastries) are served in the fellowship hall. Please enjoy them with us. If you have any questions after worship, leaders with name tags are walking around the lobby. Feel free to talk to any of us and please, join us again!
The only way to discover the richness of a faith community is to experience worship on Sunday. Also, visiting on more than one occasion gives a truer picture. Consider yourself invited!
We hope this page answers any questions or concerns you might have. Please ask us if you have any other questions. We look forward to welcoming you.

WHAT IS THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN?
Attending a church for the first time can be intimidating. Here are some common worries:
How Should I Dress?
People wear all kinds of things to church. Some folks wear suits, and that’s fine. Other people wear jeans, and that’s fine too. In a Wisconsin summer that’s always too short, people even wear shorts. Come as you are.
What if My Toddler is Noisy?
We welcome all children at our worship services, and it is not unusual to hear the cry of a baby mixed in with the sound of hymns or readings. There is a “prayground” to the left as you enter the sanctuary with quiet toys for kids three and younger. If you feel uneasy, we do have a nursery where you can take your child and still hear the service.
How About My Kids?
During the school year, age-appropriate programming from ages three to high school is offered at 9:45 a.m. between our Sunday morning services. Please click the button below to learn more about our programming for children and youth.
What About the Offering?
As our guest, we will not expect you to contribute an offering, nor do we want to pressure you into doing so. You may wish to learn more about our ministry before bringing your offerings to God through our church, but you are welcome to participate as your heart leads you to give.
What About Communion?
As our guest, you are welcome to receive communion. We serve communion by intinction at all services, including a gluten-free option. (Intinction means you are given a wafer to dip into the wine or grape juice.) Ushers will guide you forward to communion. Children who do not yet receive communion are encouraged to come forward for a blessing.
Will They Make Me Stand Up and Say Something?
We can assure you, we won’t embarrass you in this or any other way. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible and at home with us. Time at church should be an enjoyable and uplifting experience. We promise to do all we can so you can learn about your Savior.
