St. John’s Lutheran Church of Bridgewater was founded in 1854 by Rev. Frederich Schmidt. It continues to serve the local community to this day. Global outreach and support of global organizations is a commitment for St. John’s as well. At St. John’s we have adopted statements that guide us in our mission for Christ. These Mission, Vision, Values, and Beliefs Statements, are, along with the people of St. John’s, the core of our church.
