For all outdoor services, face masks are required. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. We also encourage you to maintain social distancing. Join us in the parking lot in back of the church. You can choose to sit anywhere.

Please bring:

  • a mask if you have one

Of course, outdoor services are weather dependent – we will monitor the forecasts. If it appears that we have to cancel, we will post that in our Weekly Announcements Email as well as on our Facebook Public Page & Our Facebook Group Page.



Online livestream worship services will still premier via Youtube at 9:00 a.m.  If you are unable to attend the Outdoor Worship, or in the case of bad weather, please join us for our  online version.  An announcement will be made each week on Facebook with the link to the YouTube version.  You may also watch the online service again at any time after 9:00 a.m.

Who We Are…

Our Denomination:  Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)  …What is the ELCA of Southern Wisconsin?

Our Mission:  “Saved by Grace — Led by the Spirit — Called to Serve”

Our Vision:  In the context of Oregon and our local community, we, the people of St. John’s Lutheran Church, are called to…

  • Welcome all people into a life in Christ, fostering acceptance and love in the Spirit. (Community/Evangelism)
  • Offer our diverse community varied Christ-centered worship opportunities that celebrate God’s grace and that affirm, educate, inspire and challenge us in our daily lives. (Worship)
  • Teach the Good News of Christ and challenge (encourage) children, youth and adults to grow in their spiritual lives. (Education)
  • Recognize and share our material and spiritual resources to serve God through church and community. (Service/Stewardship)


Worship Times & Styles

Due to COVID and the redesign of our new sanctuary, we are currently not holding worship services inside the church.  Instead, we are holding two other types of worship services.  One weekly service is being held in person at our Outdoor Worship Center, and one weekly service is being held Online on YouTube.  They are both held on Sundays at 9:00 AM.  Read more…

If you need to take your children out of the service, we have a staffed nursery for children age 6 and under during both Sunday services and the Sunday School Hour. The nursery room is down the hall, past the office and the restrooms. (If you need assistance, please ask an usher.)

Education Hour

Between Labor Day and Memorial Day, we have an education hour between the Sunday services, starting at 9:15. Children ages 3 and up are encouraged to attend Sunday School classes, and there are often educational offerings for adults as well.
Before heading off to a class, stop by the Third Sacrament Café for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat at a reasonable price.
Check the weekly announcements for more information on upcoming opportunities. If you have questions about Sunday School, please contact Jen Kooistra, Director of Education, Youth and Family Ministries or Pastor Paul Markquart.
