  • St. John Camping Trip - Pt. Mugu
Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church... of Covina. We're members of the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod. Jesus said to make disciples of all nations. This mission of making disciples and not just church members is our purpose. A disciple follows Jesus and is strengthened in life's journey through worship, Bible study, Christian fellowship and prayer. On behalf of the disciples at St. John, we hope you'll join us as together we follow the Way, the Truth and the Life. (Worship service is at 9am!) Pastor Patrick Curley Seal
