The gospel of St. John alone records Jesus’ prayer for future believers who would become His church and extension of hope to the world:

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through the message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent me. I have given them the glory that You gave Me, that they may be one as We are one: I in them and You in Me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved me."  - John 17:20-23

Our St. John Lutheran Church & School mission and ministry motto statement and logo proclaim this critical answer to Jesus’ prayer in a simple, memorable way:  In Jesus, Becoming One...Reaching Many!

As a visual representation of our mission statement, the center of our St. John Lutheran Church & School logo is the central witness of our faith through the redeeming cross of our Savior Jesus. That witness is formed as an answer to Jesus' prayer as people of diversity are joyfully drawn together by God’s eternal love and forgiving grace to become ONE in Christ. The image is visibly in motion, drawing the focus both inward toward the cross but also outward and forward in thanksgiving as He leads us to walk together extending His eternal love to all.

The eight extending hands of the logo also visually connect as a reminder of our eight Core Values and Strategic Directions that follow. To learn more, please click or hover over each category on the graphic below.
