A Welcoming Servant in the Heart of the City: St John’s has been a Reconciling in Christ Congregation since 2006. We, the people of St. John’s Lutheran Church, welcome everyone regardless of gender expression, sexual orientation, race, ability, languages spoken, ethnicity or economic status. We value each person’s uniqueness and diversity.

St. Johns is a center for service and mission as well as a vital urban congregation in downtown Madison.  It is a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

A Welcoming Community: Because of our involvement for over thirty-five years with those in need, shelter work, and assisting people in dire circumstances, we have learned to be open and accepting of all who come to worship and who want to help with our mission. It’s a place where a variety of perspectives are encouraged and welcomed. Our theology reflects the Lutheran emphasis on grace, and we extend that grace to everyone.
