About Us

  St. John's Lutheran Church of Thornton  is a member of Rocky Mountain Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  We are a community that welcomes all people in worship and service. Led by the Holy Spirit, we strive to love God, live God's word and care for all people.  Come and experience God right where you are!  

Our Community

We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.  Scripture tells us - “What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.”  When we serve, we meet Jesus and experience Jesus together in community.

What We Do

We have study groups and service opportunities that prompt us to encourage and build each other up as we grow, wonder and doubt in our faith.  We offer learning for all ages during worship services on Sundays.

Our Vision

"Living God’s love in Jesus Christ through word and deed. Connecting with God, each other and neighbors."

The Forgotten Books of the Bible
Book Study
Sundays, starting June 6
10:15 a.m. in Fellowship Hall

Dr. Williamson’s book is available in addition to study guides for those who want to dig into the text. Our preaching series this summer beginning June 13 will be on these forgotten books as well.
  When was the last time you read Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, Song of Songs, Ruth or Esther? What is the purpose of these books? Do they have anything to say to us today?
