We love our Decatur community and have strong partnerships with these organizations:


Northeast Community Fund

Founded in 1969 by St. John’s Lutheran Church and three local businesses, the Northeast Community Fund serves families in Decatur and Macon County through resources like food, clothing, and financial assistance — all in a Christ-like manner. The Northeast Community Fund is a great place to volunteer and is always accepting clothing, nonperishable food, and financial donations. 


Lutheran School Association

St. John’s is proud to be an associate member of the Lutheran School Association. The LSA provides our members and other families in the community with solid, Christ-centered education for grades K-12.


LSA Resale Shop

The LSA Resale Shop is a nonprofit store that provides clothing and household items at a reasonable price to Decatur families while also supporting the LSA. The LSA Resale Shop is located at 421 E. Cerro Gordo St. in Decatur.  Hours are 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
