Women's & Men's Ministries
Women of the Church
The women of the church have several opportunities each month to participate in caring and sharing.
Martha Circle meets every other Wednesday. All women of the church are invited to attend at 9:00 AM to stud the Bible together, work on special projects, and enjoy Christian fellowship with our weekly potluck lunches.
Ruth Circle, meets at 8:00 AM the first Saturday of every month. All women of the church are invited to attend for Bible study led by Pastor Jen and facilitated by Julie Dale.
After a time of caring for one another, the ladies begin caring for others through projects that serve the Lord! Support is given to St. John’s, as well as charities in the community, such as Birth Choice of the Desert, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, O.K. for Kids, and others. The ladies enjoy many projects together, including quilt making. The proceeds are donated to agencies selected by the group.
On a broader scale, The Ladies of St. John’s support Lutheran World Relief, by making and sending health kits and quilts for victims of disasters.
This ongoing group for the men of St. John’s provides support to the congregation and members of the community through a variety of services. We gather for Breakfast/Bible Study on the third Saturday of each month at 8:00 am. The Men’s Group helps organize the church’s annual “Musical Extravaganza,” a benefit for the scholarship fund for our college freshmen and sophomores.
