December was a busy month at St. John's - Our Sunday School children presented a Christmas program to celebrate Advent and our Christmas tree which was decorated with many Chrismons (tree ornaments that proclaim our Lord Jesus Christ through the use of symbols) - each with a special meaning - The tree is still up so don't miss it! Service starts every Sunday at 10:00AM. 


Sunday School classes resume again on January 11th. If you have not already enrolled your child, please do so this month as we many activities planned.


On Christmas Eve we celebrated a candlelight service with music shared with the Worldwide Church of God, Saint Mary's the Hindi Ministry at St. John's and enjoyed the sacred space of St.John's and letting God's love fill us with the holiday peace that only He is able to give.


Stewardship - if you haven't returned your pledge card for 2015 yet. please do so this Sunday. By pledging we make a commitment of our lives to what we believe and stand for. The world desperately needs to hear that God is present among us.


Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for January 25th.


Bring your family and friends and join us.  If you would like to place memorial flowers on the altar,  please contact the church office.


Founded in Richmond Hill in 1903 to bring the good news of the gospel to our community. The congregation is a member of the Metropolitan New York Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Each Sunday the Reverend Robert G. Sonnenberg offers an inspiring gospel centered sermon and the congregation responds with its praises singing the liturgy and hymns. Our organist plays on the church's original 25 rank pipe organ.
We share our facilities with the other local congregations that desire to  spread the Word of Christ.

Furthering our community outreach, we offer New York Department of Education's Universal Pre-K program for four-year-olds as well as the Saint John's Private School with part-time and full day programs. Specialized tutoring is available for students at affordable rates. AA programs and other associations are found in the church as well.

Our newly renovated banquet hall is available for your special event.

We would love to have you stop by. Come worship with us, share our 110th anniversary see our historic building and join our congregation.  We have Sunday School available for your children to attend while you enjoy our Service.
