St. John's German Lutheran Church, located about two miles south of Ohiowa, Franklin Township, Fillmore County, Nebraska was founded on 25 September 1887 by 15 German pioneer families. The first church building was dedicated on 18 May 1888. In 1945, services in the German language ceased and the congregation dropped "German" from the name, becoming St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church. In 1954, the church re-organized and took the name Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church.
