"To know the love of God, to show the love of Christ."
Welcome to St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Perrysville! Please feel free to explore our site and contact us with any questions. We appreciate you visiting and hope you can share the love of Christ with us in worship and fellowship.
To know the love of God and to show the love of Christ
To bring us to an understanding of God's will in our lives, we seek to learn and teach what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ, trusting the Holy Spirit for guidance, the Holy Scriptures for truth, and the Sacraments to sustain and strengthen us. We direct ourselves and all we have and are to supporting Jesus Christ's Mission: Serving others in His Name.
Sunday morning at 9:15 AM

We are excited to see everyone. We have taken many precautions, including partitions for the worship leaders, masks for all, social distancing the congregation, limiting the number of members in attendance at once, eliminating the use of hymnals, and more.
If you have any questions at all, just call the church office at 412-364-6626, Monday - Friday - 9AM to noon.
If you don't feel comfortable coming to church yet, we will still offer the online worship service and be sending the scripture readings as before.
For those attending, please remember to wear your mask. You will enter through either set of doors closest to the cemetery. You will enter the Chapel and get your pew assignment. Bulletins are in the pews and offering plates are as you enter and exit the Sanctuary. Everyone is asked to exit the south doors by the handicapped ramp.
