Welcome Statement

St. John's is a rural church that offers a traditional Lutheran worship service on Sunday mornings.  As we live in the power and resurrection of our crucified and risen Lord, we know in whom we put our trust as we come and go on the roads of life.

We invite you to St. John's where you will experience the love, forgiveness, and hope that we find in Jesus Christ.  All are welcome at St. John's - a place where we, "know Christ, love Christ and serve Christ.

Our Location

St. John's is located off Interstate 90 at Exit 189 between Austin and Rochester, Minnesota.  For many travelers on Interstate 90, we are known as the church with the lighted cross.  This cross becomes a beacon for those who travel the road on a regular basis.  We often hear, "when we see the lighted cross, we know where we are, or we know we are almost home." 

September 18th Worship Service

The gospel this coming Sunday deals with something that concerns us all: money. Luke calls us “children of light,” and we want to see clearly how to live our lives in Christ. Come to worship, to think and pray about this.


We are back to worshiping in the church!  

Masks are no longer required for those who have been vaccinated and social distancing is recommended

If you are unable to join us for worship in person, check us out on Facebook where our worship services are live-streamed.
