St. John's Lutheran Church
st. john's lutheran church - montpelier OH - 419.485.3736

Welcome to St. John's Lutheran Church in Montpelier OH, where we have faithfully proclaimed the love of Jesus Christ to the people of our surrounding area for over 150 years!  Our region has seen many changes through the years, but two wonderful truths have not changed - the blessings of God in Jesus our Savior, and the warmth and friendliness of the church family here at St. John's.

For us, worship is not a "spectator sport".  We will put you to work singing, reading, and participating in our services.  Maybe you will be working on our mission trips.  Perhaps teaching our youth is a good fit for you.  There are many ways to serve at St. John's.

St. John's offers the following weekly Sunday services:
  • 8 a.m. - Praise and Worship (a more relaxed service with contemporary music)
  • 9 a.m. - Sunday School classes for all ages, including two adult classes
  • 10 a.m. - Traditional Worship (traditional liturgy and hymns)
  • A staffed nursery is available at the 10 a.m. service.
Other services are held throughout the year as well including: Wednesday Lenten Services; Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday; Easter Sunrise; Mid-week Advent Services; and Christmas Eve Service, just to name a few.
 
We love having visitors and look forward to meeting you and worshiping together.
 

 

PASTORAL EVALUATION FORM

By direction of the current St. John’s Church Council, there will be a Pastoral Evaluation to assist with the ministry of the church to be completed by congregation members.  This Pastoral Evaluation Form is to be completed and returned by Sunday, November 1.  Paper forms will be available in church in the bulletin October 18, 25 and November 1.   An online link to use a Survey Monkey is available below in the blue link and also will be sent to the Newsletter/Bulletin email list of members after the service, October 18.  An Evaluation Form will be mailed to those members who are unable to attend church and are not on the Newsletter/Bulletin email list.   If you do not receive a mailed Evaluation Form by October 24, please call the church office and it will be mailed to you.
