Mission

Our Mission is “To Know Christ and to Make Christ Known”

Our Vision ismission

As followers of Christ, we share a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, which forms us as a community of faith and frees us to love and serve God and our neighbors. We live this through

  • worship services in which we share the gospel through Word and Sacrament ­and song
  • educational opportunities for all ages that promote and develop spiritual maturity
  • pastoral care for those in need through prayer and caring ministries
  • fellowship experiences that celebrate our relationship with God and each other
  • community engagement through which we serve our neighbors, promote peace and justice, and seek the wellbeing of all people

St John’s has been living out our mission in Coachella Valley communities for 50 years, supporting local ministries such as FIND (Food In Need of Distribution), the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, the Salvation Army, and Narrow Door.

Traditional Worship
Jul 21 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Traditional worship at 9:00 AM is a liturgically responsive worship service, based on the Bible and the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal. St. John’s talented Patrick Karst accompanies this service on organ and keyboard and Laura Stave provides her beautiful voice as cantor and soloist. This service is formal, yet relaxed, allowing time for prayer and reflection, with communion each Sunday.

St. John’s choir, directed by Laura Stave, also provides special music on occasion.

Praise Worship
Jul 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Our 11:00 AM Worship is a “lighter” liturgy than the 9:00 AM service. The service’s jazz and praise beat encourages participation from the worshipers and although we mainly sing contemporary praise songs, we don’t neglect beloved hymns. The Praise team is directed by Bob Corwin and is comprised of Bob Corwin, pianist, Danny Flahive, bass fiddle, and Ron Mercier on the drums. Samantha Corwin and Laura Stave are the lead singers whose rhythmic harmony strengthens participation. These talented women also sing solos and duets each Sunday.

Lessons, sermons and announcements are the same at both services with Holy Communion every Sunday.
