Want to Become a Member?


If you are interested in becoming a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, please contact our church office, (217) 875-3656.

If you are already a member of a LCMS congregation, it is very easy to transfer your membership.  To initiate the transfer, your current church will need to forward a membership transfer letter to St. John’s.

If you are not a member of an LCMS congregation, St. John’s offers Basics of Christianity (BOC) classes several times a year.  The BOC class uses Martin Luther’s Small Catechism as a textbook to walk you through the beliefs of St. John’s and the Lutheran Church.  Classes meet every Sunday and last for approximately 8 weeks.  Pre-registration is required by contacting the church office at (217) 875-3656.
