The Joi de Vivre Visual Arts Ministry of St. John’s celebrates the blessing of creative expression that has been bestowed upon all of God’s children. These images represent what we hope for and aspire to as we rejoice in the blessing of life that is the Lord's gift for all to share. 


This Ministry curates and presents images that bring glory to God through a gallery setting in our St. John's lobby. 

In addition to our gallery and art shows, the Visual Arts Ministry periodically holds workshops where St. John's members and guests can explore their connection to God through the creation of art. 

Lobby Hours: Monday-Thursday 9:00AM - 4:00PM, Friday 9:00AM - 12PM

Now Presenting: The Healing Journey

During Lent, Senior Pastor Randall Partin preached a series called "The Healing Journey". Each week the congregation explored ways to heal relationships in their lives and in their community. The current artwork displayed by the Visual Arts Ministry follows that journey, and will be on display throughout the spring of 2022.
