• What is one of your favorite memories about St. John’s? What brought you to St. John’s? What do you think lies ahead for St. John’s in the following decades? 


  • Sixteen-year-old Natalia Kimmelshue is an active St. Johns youth group member and sophomore at Christian Brothers High School. Avid seamstress, tennis player and Model United Nations club president, Natalia is involved at her school but decided to make her summer educational as well. 


  • It was the summer before my freshman year when our youth group loaded into big white vans to trek down to Thousand Oaks. It was our first trip with our new youth leader, Sierra, and would be a learning experience for us all. Not only were we going to participate in service with over 5,000 other young adults, but we were also a relatively new group. 


  • Tongues of fire, a rush of wind, multiple languages, an impassioned sermon and 3000 converts. Welcome to Pentecost! The church’s observation of the day in which the Holy Spirit was given to the believers in Jerusalem is festive for a reason. Pentecost centers us in God’s mission for Christ’s church! 


  • Pastor Carlos Schneider, who served St. John’s as both an associate and senior pastor for 21 years, is returning to help us celebrate our 150th anniversary. He joins our worship services on Sunday, July 9 to preach.


  • As changes are made that align with our 2017 strategic plan, it became time for St. John's to evaluate our communications methods with members and the St. John's community. We want to insure that our members know what is going on here, but we know we can fine tune our communications and do a better job at reaching everyone.


  • If you listen in on the St. John's Sanctuary Choir rehearsing with the Director of Music and Worship, Steven Johnson, these days, you will hear a lot of German. That's because we are practicing Bach's Cantata No. 80, his arrangement of Martin Luther's famous hymn, Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, or as most of us know it, A Mighty Fortress is our God.
