St. John’s Lutheran Church celebrates
St. John’s Lutheran Church, located 3 miles south of Stockdale on S.H. 119 and established in October 1908, will celebrate its 103rd birthday-anniversary on Sunday, Oct. 16.
St. John’s is a welcoming Reconciling in Christ congregation of the SW Texas Reconciling in Christ Synod of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).
It is one of more than 10,000 ELCA congregations with educational ministries in 26 colleges and universities (including Texas Lutheran University in Seguin), eight seminaries, a major publishing service, extensive social services, and hunger and disaster-relief services throughout the United States and the world.
All are welcome Sunday, and every Sunday, beginning with Sunday school classes, Confirmation Ministry, and Adult Bible Study at 9 a.m. and Holy Communion Worship Services at 10 a.m.
The saloons and stores in Denhawken closed their doors many years ago, but the church remains for you. The congregation especially invites shale oil and natural gas well workers and their families as they come to this area.
