Our prayer is that you will be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus, and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. St. John Lutheran Church is here for you. It is not just a church; it is a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord, and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you! May the Lord bless you and keep you! We hope to see you soon!
Peace of the Lord be with you. My name is Pastor Kurt Mews and I am the senior  pastor at St. John Lutheran Church, LCMS in Defiance, Ohio. I invite you to join us in worship and Bible Study. Thank you for visiting our webpage and hope to meet you and encourage you to continue to grow in your faith of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
