"As our family was in the midst of our international adoption of two sisters, ages 3 and 13, we knew we needed educational support to help our oldest daughter catch up academically before officially enrolling in school. The staff at St John was the first to consider our situation a blessing and opportunity instead of just a headache. The staff welcomed our special needs and quickly integrated our children into the St. John family. We couldn't be more appreciative. Our children who attend St John are thriving! We are beyond thankful for God's provision of not only a school but also a staff who feels more like an extended family."

Grace and truth, love and life — that's what we want you to see and hear in our congregation at St. John Lutheran Church!

Benefits for military families
