St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church

Community & Worship- Everyone Belongs

231 State Street
Nanticoke, PA 18634


Since 1882, St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church has been a place for members of the Greater Nanticoke area to come together and worship as part of a strong, loving community. Our worship expresses the unity of the people of God and their continuity with Christians across the ages. In the liturgical tradition are the gestures, songs, and words by which Christians have identified themselves and each other.

We’re always happy to see you and warmly welcome visitors.

In person services at 8:00AM and 9:30 AM will continue with safety measures in place.
A Sunday service will also be streamed on Facebook and on this site.

Sunday School Started

Oct 11th-10:30Am





When you are sitting in a pew at our church you become a full participant in our liturgy. Worship is the work of the people, and at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, we understand that our worship is a holy work we create with God and with each other.


Our services are aimed to engage you in an experience that will stay with you for a long time. It is not just our worship, but it is our unique community that makes us worth the visit and for many, it is what calls them to stay. We have remained close with our neighborhood through many changes over the years since our founding in 1882. We hear our call to remain in this place and always serve God's people. Get to know us.


We would like to get to know you!

To gather with God's people in united adoration of the Father

is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer.
