OMG!: Churches and Synagogues of Greenwich Village

St. John’s Lutheran Church

St. John ’s Lutheran Church at 81 Christopher Street has been a fixture of the West Village since 1821. Religious worship on the site dates back even further than that.

Join us for an evening to explore the history of this site. St. John’s was the location of the first Lutheran seminary in America, housed three different congregations over the years, and was the headquarters of the local Saint George Association, among other interesting facets of its history. Current and historic images of the church will be featured at the talk, as well as a piece of art displayed at the 1964 World’s Fair.

The evening will be led by the current pastor of St. John’s, the Rev. Mark Erson
