Welcome to St. John's Lutheran School!
“Here and now…we are God’s children.” I John 3:2
“You don’t know me!” “How do You know what I think?” Children clash with parents over the identity issue many times. In our world today, self expression and “being who you want to be” are traits to applaud. The crisis with identity affects adults too. Mid-life crises find many doing things that they would never do while they were younger. What about our school children? Do they know who they are? Thankfully, yes they do!
At our school, we remind the children that they are blood-bought souls redeemed and loved by our Lord Jesus. They, along with the families we serve, can all rejoice in the certainty that ‘here and now we are God’s children.’
This identity and purpose help us to bring up our children. We know who we are and what responsibilities God has given us to train our children up to know Him. Praise God for giving us His Word to do this! Be thankful and rejoice that we are secure in who we are, that our Christian mind-set would help us always to have the proper perspective not only in this life, but also in the life to come!

Mr. Backus - Principal
St. John's Evangelical Lutheran School exists to assist parents in proclaiming the Bible's saving message to their children and in equipping them for lives of service, by providing a high quality, Christ Centered curriculum and environment.
St. John’s Ev. Lutheran School is guided by the fact that God’s ultimate goal for human beings is eternal salvation. We accept the following truths:
A. There is only one true God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Isaiah 45:21; Matthew 28:19).
B. People were created by God, in the image of God (Genesis 1:27; Ephesians 4:24).
C. The fall into sin corrupted the entire human race, making it subject to damnation. (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12).
D. By grace through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, all sins have been pardoned (Romans 3:22-24; Ephesians 2:8,9).
E. Such forgiveness is received by all who through faith know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (John 3:16-17; Romans 10:11-13).
F. Belief in Jesus Christ makes a person a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17,18; Galatians 2:20).
G. As a believer, each Christian’s life grows in the following areas:
1. Use of the Means of Grace (Word and Sacraments) (2 Peter 3:18; I Corinthians 11:25,26).
2. Dependence upon the Father, our Creator and Preserver; the Son, Jesus Christ, our
Savior from sin, death and the devil; and the Holy Spirit, our source and strengthener
of faith and new life. (Isaiah 41:10; Matthew 11:28,29; II Corinthians12:3).
We proclaim these truths, not only in religion classes, but also throughout the curriculum. We assert God’s Word as truth in every phase of instruction and training in our school.
