Narrow Door Christmas Store

Christmas Shopping Early?

Please pickup a toy to donate to The Narrow Door’s “C.V. Christmas Store.” A donation box will be in the Sanctuary beginning Sun, Nov 18. All new, unwrapped toys for kids ages 0 to 18 will go to needy children in the east valley.

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
Mar 24 @ 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.

Communion Assistant Training @ St. John's Lutheran Church
Mar 24 @ 10:15 am – 10:45 am
Praise Worship
Mar 24 @ 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.
