First time visit? 

lutheran church londonIt can be hard to go to a church for the first time. You might have questions, such as, "Can I bring my children to worship?" "What should I wear?" "What will the service be like?"

We hope to answer some of the questions you might have about our church before you visit, so your experience is relaxed and enjoyable.

Our goal is that when you visit St John's Lutheran Church, you will be warmly welcomed, hear about your Savior, Jesus, and come to know (or rediscover) the grace and love of God for you.

Weekend Worship 

People connect with God in different ways. For some, a liturgy including responsive readings and traditional hymns are best. Others feel connected to God through praise songs. Still others connect with God best in silence. We like to talk about those different ways as "love languages". Since people of common faith can have differing love languages, our goal is to offer worship that is true to our Lutheran beliefs and invites everyone to serve God in a worship style that works best for them. See more detailed information on our Worship page.


Children of all ages are a big part of our life together at St John's Lutheran Church. Children are welcome in worship, however Sunday School and Nursery options are available during worship. 


Sometimes people wonder how they are expected to dress at a church they've never visited before. Since the Bible presents no dress code, aside from simple decency and Christian humility, St John's Lutheran Church doesn't make any rules either. Like most people, our members try to make their worship time at church a special time. This is often reflected in the way they dress. But dress is a personal matter of worship before God. On any weekend at our church you may see running shoes and high heels, jeans and suits, or open collars and ties. When a person dresses out of love for God, the choice of dress (casual or more formal) is acceptable to God . . . and us.


"When will they take the offering?" "How will it be collected?" "How much am I expected to give?" "Do they want visitors to contribute too?" The answer is we do pass offering plates after the sermon, but there is no pressure to give. The Bible teaches that our offerings to God should reflect our belief that all we have is his gift to us. It teaches us that with our offerings we worship and honor God. Since offerings are gifts of love for God, no one dictates what each person is to give.
