Welcome to St. John's Lutheran Church - Sauers
St. John’s Lutheran Church - Sauers is located in a farm community near Seymour, Indiana. We are a Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod congregation. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing.
St. John’s Lutheran Church - Sauers was organized on December 31, 1838. We are the oldest Lutheran congregation in Jackson County and the second oldest Missouri Synod congregation in Indiana. With the Lord's blessing and through the work of our members, we have grown from a handful of faithful Christians to a congregation of nearly 700 members. We also maintain an elementary school (pre-school, kindergarten, and grades 1 - 8) of approximately 120 students.
St. John’s joins with over 6,000 congregations and nearly 2.6 million persons in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, an international church body. Together we support mission work in the United States as well as over 30 foreign countries, train church workers through 17 colleges and seminaries and publish resources for worship and education.
Our church and its members welcome you. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.
If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.
We would like to express our thanks to Indiana District pres. Rev. Daniel May for participating in our service on Sunday, December 7 — as part of our 175th anniversary celebration.
Our God…Our History…Our Future. We will be celebrating our 175 years of service and Christian fellowship throughout 2014 and 2015. Please watch for related events.
