Confirmation and Youth Bible Study
Our Confirmation and Youth Bible study classes take place from 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm (after the 11 am Worship Service). Join us as we explore the faith together, share times of fellowship, and grow in God’s grace. Contact Molly Farrin though the Church Office (760-345-2122) for more information.
St. John’s offers Children’s Church every Sunday during our 11:00 am Worship Service. We gather together in Worship, and then have a break-out session in our Ministry Center that includes Bible study, various crafts, and educational activities. We then rejoin the Worship Service for Communion.
Women’s Bible Study
The Ruth Circle of the Women’s Group meets the first Saturday of every month in the Ministry Center at 8 am. Pastor Jen is currently leading the group in a study on the Book of Acts.
All women we welcome!
Men’s Bible Study
The Men’s Club meets the third Saturday of every month at 8 am in the Fellowship Hall, beginning with fellowship and a business meeting. They continue with a Bible study together.
We’ve launched our “Come, Holy Spirit” Adult Ed series, focusing on the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, present with us, moving among us, speaking to us.
Join us as we explore who the Holy Spirit is, the gifts and fruits the Spirit brings, and how a fuller understanding and experience of the Holy Spirit is vital in our life of faith as the followers and community of Christ. We meet Wednesdays at 9 am; repeated on Thursdays at 7 pm. All are welcome!
All are welcome as we learn and grow together!

“Holy Conversations”: Sharing Jesus Christ with the People in our Lives (Spring 2018)
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are all called to share his good news in our words and actions, in our community, in how we live our lives; in other words, we are called to have ‘holy conversations’ with others. This study was based on the book “Holy Conversation: Talking About God in Everyday Life” by Richard Peace. Class outline is available here.
