St. John’s is located at the corner of Old York Road (Route 611) and Melrose Avenue.

The church building is wheelchair-accessible from the Melrose Avenue lot.

People of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds are welcome in worship! We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Next Handcraft Night: July 3

Our next Handcraft Night will be Tuesday, July 3 at 7:00 pm. Bring your knitting, spinning, sewing, crocheting, weaving… and enjoy fellowship while working together. Come at 6:30 for a crash course in knitting (bring needles, we have yarn)! Handcraft Night is a great opportunity to get to know each other better and to draw on each other’s wisdom to solve problems in projects or to learn new skills, like mending tears and replacing buttons. Kids are welcome!

Summer 2018 at St. John’s

Join us at St. John’s this summer for worship, learning, and fellowship together! We worship every Sunday morning at 10:00 in our air-conditioned sanctuary. On the liturgical calendar of the church year, the long stretch of time between Pentecost at the end of May and Advent in November is known as “ordinary time,” a time for learning and growing in faith.

A Prayground for St. John’s

This summer, St. John’s is exploring the possibility of adding a prayground to our sanctuary. A prayground is a small quiet play area in a sanctuary for babies, toddlers, and their families. Praygrounds help churches welcome and retain families with young children. You can learn more about praygrounds while you are at church for worship, from the Prayground FAQ available here, and from members of the Prayground Task Force.
