A Shared Vision

For over 160 years, our Lord has been renewing St. John Lutheran as individuals and as a church family. Our shared two-year vision for where God is leading our congregation, we call RENEWED. He is leading us to SHARE the Gospel, to CARE for our Others and to SERVE in His name. 

Renew our zeal of sharing the best news we have with all of Plymouth: Jesus! Expand the enrollment of our school allowing us to capture more young hearts for Christ. Resource and expand our excellent staff to provide maximum spiritual growth opportunities.

Become a catalyst of care through the Food Pantry, Welcome Table and other local opportunities. Create family and education based small groups to strengthen marriages, families and children. Seek out and meet people where they are in order to show the love of Jesus.

Become the serving hands and feet of Jesus for the family of St. John and our Plymouth community. Accelerate our global engagement through annual mission trips to the Dominican Republic. Extend service and mission opportunities in Plymouth.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17 

We believe that God has positioned us for this moment in time to make an impact with the Gospel like never before. We are all being RENEWED to Share the Gospel, Care for Others, and to Serve in His name! Each of us is challenged to deepen our commitment to Christ, to grow in faith and to cultivate a generous lifestyle so we can accomplish God's vision for St. John of reaching even more people by changing lives and renewing communities here and around the world.
