Today, David Saving and Scott Averill begin a Bike Across America, over 3,500 miles crossing twelve states, to raise awareness and support for education in 29 countries around the world supported by LeadaChild, an LCMS recognized service organization.
LeadaChild has served to provide Christian education for children for over 47 years. Riders, David Saving and Scott Averill, will be departing Portland, Oregon and ride their bikes across the entire United States to Portland, Maine. Their goal to raise $250,000 so children in indigenous countries can receive ongoing education. Nearly $160,000 has already been pledged toward that goal.

The mission of St. John's Lutheran Church is to preach the Word of God in its purity and to teach this Word to all people. We do so through the means God has given us, the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.
What We Believe
The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and subscribes unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.
We accept the Confessions because they are drawn from the Word of God and on that account regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture and as authoritative for all pastors, congregations and other rostered church workers of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
