Welcome to St. John’s Sauers Lutheran Church



St. John’s Sauers is located in a farm community near Seymour, Indiana. We are a Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod congregation.

St. John’s Lutheran Church - Sauers was organized in 1838. We are the oldest Lutheran congregation in Jackson County and the second oldest Missouri Synod congregation in Indiana. With the Lord's blessing and through the work of our members, we have grown from a handful of faithful Christians to a congregation of nearly 700 members.

We also maintain an elementary school (pre-school, kindergarten, and grades 1 - 8) of 140 students. St. John’s Sauers Lutheran School has provided Christian education in Jackson County for over 170 years. Our school is accredited by the Indiana Department of Education and the Lutheran Church's National Lutheran School Accreditation Association. 


Our annual Congregational Dinner will be held on Sunday, November 5
from 4 PM – 7 PM in the gymnasium. To-go dinners also available.

This will be our traditional sit-down dinner with turkey, ham, and all the
trimmings. Please join us on November 5 !

And, of course, Ladies Aid will have items for sale at its Bazarre.
