About Us.

Our Mission

For 150 years, St. John’s Lutheran Church in Stony Ridge, Ohio, has played a prominent role in the community and the world. We are the church on the “hilltop,” located at the corner of U.S. 20 and S.R. 163.

Saved by the grace of God to witness and to serve others

As the people of God, we are committed to fulfilling our divine mission: “Saved by the grace of God to witness and to serve others,” and growing into our God given vision: “To become a church of fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who are dedicated to spiritual growth for the sake of the world.”

What to Expect

Considering joining us? Here are some things you might expect to find at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

We gather for Weekly Worship to give our thanks and praise to God. We are a Word and Sacrament church, so our worship services feature relevant, Biblical preaching (Word) and the gracious gift of Holy Communion (Sacrament). At St. John’s Lutheran Church, Holy Communion is open to all baptized Christians, including children who have received their First Communion. Small children are invited to come forward to receive a blessing.

Come as you are. At St. John’s you will find ladies wearing dresses or slacks and men wearing open collar shirts. You will also find people wearing shorts, jeans, and t-shirts. Don’t fret about your clothes, just come!

We are a friendly congregation, so people are going to say, “Hello!”. We will not ask you to stand and introduce yourself to folks that you don’t know.

We are committed to daily prayer, and would love to pray for you and your needs.

People at St. John’s are generous in their giving to God and to those in need. Every Sunday, we receive an offering as a way of saying “thank you” to God and to support the mission of our church.
