St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church ...
... St. John's Lutheran, St. John's Sumneytown, or just St. John's

However you say it, we are all one church! We are a community of faith who gather to worship God and help people in Christ’s name. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name.

Our Mission

We strive to be a community that is  
     open to the Spirit of God
          that moves, changes and inspires us
               to connect with God and one another,

We are Ignited by Spirit, Growing in Love!

This is our core purpose, integrated into our life as a congregation. The words describe who God is calling us to be: 

  • Ignited by Spirit – We strive to be passionate and enthusiastic about what God is doing through us, trusting that God’s Spirit will guide us if we keep ourselves open and listening.
  • Growing in Love – We believe God’s love for all people is deep, wide and unconditional, so we seek to continue embracing that love in our lives, in what we do as a community of faith and in sharing that love with the world around us.
