St. John's Lutheran Church

Welcome to historic St. John's Lutheran Church in New Baltimore, Michigan! For over 150 years, St. John's has been a witness to God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. Everyone is invited to visit and attend one of our Sunday morning worship services.

OUR VISION: "I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the the Lord!" - Psalm 122:1

OUR MISSION: God has called us to Care, Share, Teach and Love as Jesus has loved us.

OUR PURPOSE: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20

EXTENDING THE FEAST FOR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES
On the first Sunday of each month, we will be taking a collection for our local food pantries.

This practice comes to us from the ancient church. In that time, after all of the people gathered together had eaten, a deacon would take food to people in need. The feast was extended! We hope to continue that tradition.

Please bring your donated items to worship the first Sunday each month.
