Thank you for visiting our church's website. We believe that there has never been a better time to serve Jesus and receive the word of Christ. We'd be happy for you to make this your place of worship, and feel free to ask any questions you'd like. St. John's is a welcoming, bible-centered church in rural McLeod County. God has richly blessed and continues to bless this small country church. In 2015 we celebrated the 150th anniversary of our existence as a congregation. Given our rich history, we continue to look forward to what the Lord will do in and through us as a congregation for decades to come. The leaders and members of our church are deeply committed to biblical truth and a desire to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do and stand for. If you have a chance to visit our church, I trust, you too will sense that the Spirit of God inhabits this place and this people.

Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
