General School Mission

"St. John Lutheran Church sees spiritual growth as an integral part of a child's development. It is also our congregation's mission to reach out to the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is our wish to help children grow socially, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, through hands on experiences in a loving, Christian environment."
