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." 

July 26th Worship Service

The gospel reading for this coming Sunday includes six very brief parables about what Matthew calls “the kingdom of heaven.” 

Outdoor Worship with Holy Communion will be held on the church lawn at 9:00 AM on Sunday, July 26th. 

  • Bring your own lawn chairs.

  • Masks are required

  • We will practice physical distancing of 6 feet or more.  Please sit only with those with whom you share a house. 

  • A basket for your offering envelopes will be available when you arrive.
