Greetings and peace from your friends at St. Johns Lutheran Church and welcome to our web-site! We pray that your visit here will be a blessing and that through it you might come to know know us a little better. To that end, permit us to take a moment to both introduce you to St. Johns and invite you to join us should you ever visit Park Rapids.
Located just west of Park Rapids, Minnesota on Highway 34, St. Johns is a congregation gathered by Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit around His saving Word and life-giving Sacraments. As a faithful congregation of the Minnesota North District of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, we joyfully hold to the teachings of the Scriptures as they are confessed in the Lutheran Confessions.
St. Johns is a lively and growing congregation of conservative Lutherans who have received grace and every blessing from our Savior. We preach Christ crucified at St. Johns. We are joyous in our living, traditional in our worship, biblical and confessional in our teaching, active in our youth work, and called to mission in our outreach. We believe in Jesus at St. Johns and the salvation that is found in His name.
What does that look like? Join us as a guest on Sunday mornings and you will find out! Our worship is historic and liturgical, meaningful and life-changing. Our music program is joyous, inspiring and well prepared. Our preaching is gospel preaching– full of the good news about Jesus and the salvation that is found in His name. As well, we offer an ABC Preschool for 3-4 year olds, youth programs, adult bible classes, women’s groups, music groups for adults and children, and many other opportunities for service.
Should you find yourself in search of a church home or if you would simply like to hear more about Jesus, do not hesitate to join us at St. Johns as a guest on Sunday morning. Our services begin at 8am and 10:30am and you will be warmly welcomed when you arrive. Greeters and ushers will be available to assist you or answer any questions you may have.
Again, welcome to our web-site! If you have any questions, feel free to call the church office, email one of the pastors, or stop in any time. The peace of the Lord be with you.
In Jesus our one salvation,
