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." 

Worship Service Schedule

All church worship services have been cancelled until further notice.

July 5th Worship Service

The word "yoke" (at least when heard) probably makes us think of eggs.  But in the gospel on this coming Sunday, the yoke is the wooden neck brace that helps two oxen pull their load together.  Come to worship to find out about the yoke we are fitted into at our baptism, and at the table, be strengthened to join with Christ to carry your heavy burdens.


Worship with Holy Communion at 9:00 AM on the church lawn this Sunday, July 5th. 

  • Holy Communion will be served in individual, self-contained wafer/juice containers.

  • Bring your own lawn chairs.

  • Physical distancing of a minimum of 6 feet required

  • Please sit only with people which whom you share a house.

  • Masks are strongly recommended for the safety of all.

  • The church building will not be open during the service.
