About Us

Our world is certainly different this summer. Below you will find how our worship works when we are not dealing with a global pandemic. For now, however, we are having LIVE online worship that you can join on Facebook at 9am on Sundays or watch right here on our website. In addition we are holding outdoor, socially distanced worship on Sunday at 9am in our outdoor sanctuary. Masks are required and you must pre-register to attend by clicking here: Sign Up to Attend Sunday Worship. Outdoor worship is cancelled if it rains.

Whether you prefer to worship online right now, or would like to attend outdoor worship, we would love to have you as part of our community of faith. Welcome to St. John’s.

St. John’s…..a community Sharing the Love of Christ by WORSHIPPING God daily, WELCOMING all people, PRAYING for God’s creation, and PROCLAIMING the Good News of Jesus Christ! (Phil 4:4-9)

We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), located in the heart of the Lake Minnetonka area. Our worship services are Sundays at 9:00am and 10:45am and Wednesdays at 6:30pm year-round.

In the summer (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend), our 9:00am worship is outdoors in our wonderful outdoor sanctuary on the back side of our building (near our memorial garden). Our 10:45am worship is indoors.  And, depending on the weather, our Wednesday 6:30pm evening service is either outdoors or in the sanctuary.  We always have coffee/treats fellowship year-round after worship.

We invite you to join us — we love having you as our guest! (Introduce yourself to an usher or a pastor … we have a gift for you on your first visit.)  There are many opportunities for shared ministry throughout the week, and we encourage everyone to discover a sense of belonging and service to others.

Our Pastor & Staff:  Our Pastors are Sara Vanderpan and Deb Bergstrand. Along with our talented staff, church council and volunteers, we celebrate the Good News of God’s love and strive to help ours know about that same love.  To learn more about our pastors and staff, click here. Again, welcome!  We are glad you found us online, and hope that you take the time to join us in person.
