Members of the Immanuel (Olivette) Confirmation Class of 1952 celebrated their 65th anniversary this year. Rev. Walter J. Hoffmann confirmed 19 students on Palm Sunday in 1952. Of those, three are now deceased and three could not be located. The remaining 13 members of the class were invited to worship at Immanuel in the 10:30 a.m. service on May 28th and then gathered for a picnic at the home of Cathy Trower for a time of reminiscing and getting reacquainted. Some had not seen each other for 60 years or more. Read more . . .

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.
