St. John’s Lutheran Church
Lead Pastor or Rector
Rev. Peter Beeson
Arts Ministry Leader
Rev. Doctor Julia Weaver
Welcoming servant in the heart of the city.
Pastor of Arts and Community, Julia Weaver provides spiritual care through the arts. The garden, the loom, the mosaic studio all become places of prayer and care for our souls. Collaborations and commissions with our neighborhood and community extend our ministry beyond the walls. Music Director, Emily Volland brings us together to make music, inside our building and out in our community.
Our 164 year old building is a welcoming musical venue with gathering spaces for community meetings and offices. We house Porchlight, Inc, Project RESPECT, Lutheran Social Services’ Off The Square Club and recovery groups; organizations all serving the most vulnerable in our community.
St. John’s also houses the Backyard Mosaic Women’s Project.
