Coachella Valley Rescue Mission – “90 Days of Summer Relief”

St. John’s is partnering with the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission for “90 Days of Summer Relief” to help provide relief for the homeless this summer. Items needed include: bottled water, hats, toiletries, and sunscreen. A donation box is in the Narthax. For more info, visit cvrm.org.

You can also contribute to the purchase of turkeys for the Thanksgiving meal by making a check out to St. John’s and noting “CVRM Turkeys” in the memo line. Thank you!

FIND

“I was hungry and you gave me food…”

Distribution takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month beginning at 9 am. 

Feeding people, both spiritually and physically, is at the very heart of the Christian faith and our church’s life. St. John’s has been a distribution site for the Food in Need of Distribution (FIND) program serving those in need of food assistance in our community since 1995. The program is funded solely by members and friends of St. John’s Lutheran.

First time recipients need proof of residency (gas or electric bills, drivers license, etc.) Anyone from other area of the Coachella Valley will be served on their first visit and then given a directory for distribution sites in their area.

If you would like more information, or to volunteer, please contact the church office.

For more information on how you can volunteer with St. John’s, please contact our church office.

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.
