“I was hungry” Monthly Food Bank Offering
The first Sunday of each month you have the opportunity to bring non-perishable food items to church for the “I was hungry” Monthly Food Bank Offering. Your food offering will go to local food banks to assist people from our community. Your non-perishable food offering may be placed in the boxes in the foyer or narthex. Jesus said this about those who believe in Him: “For I was hungry and you fed me.” (Matthew 25) Thank you for your food gifts.

Who We Are
Founded on October 1, 1849 St. John Lutheran Church (Flatrock) is a member congregation of the LutheranChurch-Missouri Synod. The seven families that formed St. John desired a place to gather in worship to receive God’s gifts of grace, forgiveness, new life and salvation from His Word and Sacraments, and to have a place for the education of their children. Serving southeast Allen County, St. John continues to be that place to receive God’s gifts and to learn about His love for us in Jesus, His Son, our Savior. Learn more about our history.
Learning and Serving
Various opportunities are available for one’s spiritual growth through the study of God’s Word. Sunday School, Bible studies, Jr. Catechism classes and Adult Information classes are regularly offered as well as occasional learning events. Service opportunities also are available allowing members to engage in the support of Christ’s ministry and sharing His mercy.
From its founding St. John has offered a Christian Day School. Other opportunities for youth to learn are also offered as well as social gatherings for fun and service within the community.
