St John Lutheran Church is a congregation of members striving to make disciples in God’s kingdom on earth by living in the light of Jesus according to his Word. Established in 1864, St. John's Lutheran Church has been faithfully serving God in the community of Burr Oak Michigan and we are looking forward to celebrating our 150th anniversary in 2014.
St. John’s is very active in the community by reaching out to spread the good news of the Gospel in many ways within our area. We regularly worship on Sunday mornings at 8:00 am and 10:30am in addition to partaking in a Java Time Fellowship gathering at 9:00 am and offering a Bible study and Sunday School program at 9:30 am each week. Since St. John's is the only church in Burr Oak with a full-time pastor in the community, we are blessed to have an active Sunday School and Youth Group program in addition to a yearly daytime Vacation Bible School program.
Feed My People is the Burr Oak local community’s food pantry which is fully funded, staffed and housed by St. John’s Lutheran Church. While the Feed My People food pantry is our church’s largest outreach program, our Outreach Committee hosts several other events each year to encourage people to join us at St. John's. Also, the St. John’s Players (a tradition started over 100 years ago) hosts an annual dinner theater event, raising additional funds for various organizations or individuals in need within the community.
While St. John's is an aging congregation, we are truly blessed to have a number of young families return to their roots at St. John's. God is definitely blessing the ministry at St. John's.
150th Anniversary Theme Verse
15 Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. 16 He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
