Here at St. Johns, our vision is to Connect with Christ, Church and Community. There are many ways to put this vision into action. We come together as a community to strengthen our desire to “Connect with Christ” through Sunday worship. St. Johns offers a 9 AM traditional service and a contemporary 11 AM service. Children’s church and toddler’s church are taught during the 11 AM worship service and all lessons are Biblical focused and incorporate creative crafts and games. Sunday school classes meet at 10 AM in various locations around our campus, and classes are always open for you to join! In addition to our in-person worship, St. Johns live streams both worship services and all resources are available for you to download.
Our story begins in the summer of 1922 when the President was Warren G. Harding, the Vice President was Calvin Coolidge, and the population of the United States was 110,049,000. The Presbyterian neighbors of St. Johns Park organized a Sunday afternoon Sunday school. The Springfield Presbyterian Church, (no longer in existence) helped to establish our new congregation. There was such enthusiastic support, that in less than a year, the property at Melrose and Fair Street was acquired, and it soon became the St. Johns Park Chapel. Seventy-eight members went on the roll as charter members on June 16, 1929. St. Johns continues to offer a vital ministry for Riverside, Ortega, Avondale, and beyond.
