Sharing the Love of Christ

In the church.

In the community.

In the world.


Plug in to St. John

A Foundation of Faith for Everything We Do

We welcome you to our St. John faith community and we invite you to worship with us every week.  Come just as you are, sinner and saint, and celebrate the God who made us all.  St. John Lutheran Church has three pastors who serve our congregation.

COVID 19 Response: We look forward to the day when we can resume worshipping safely together, in our Sanctuary.  Until then, please join us on Sundays at 10am on our Facebook page, St. John by the Mall - Joliet, IL for a Watch Party.

Download or listen online to any sermon at your convenience.  Children, adults and families may serve as worship leaders.

We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome at worship.

  • Children - We encourage children in worship!

  • Nursery with Parent Pagers - If you'd like a little quiet time to yourself during worship, we offer nursery care for infants through age 5 on Sunday mornings for both services.  We'll give you a pager in case your child needs you.

  • Fireside Room - At the rear of the Sanctuary is a glass enclosed room fondly called the Fireside Room. Use this worship space to participate while little ones stretch their legs or to give your special needs family member a little extra room to bounce around, listen to their calming videos, or do what they need to do. 

  • Busy Bags - St. John seniors create busy bags for children ages 5 through 8 to use during worship.  The bags include quiet activities for children to do while parents worship.

  • Accessibility - Our entire building is handicap accessible.

  • Large Print - We offer large print bulletins.

  • Listening Devices - We offer listening devices for the hearing impaired.  

  • Communion - We offer communion at every service and it consists of traditional bread or gluten-free wafers and wine or juice.  You may let the pastor know your preference at communion time.
