The performing arts events are held in the sanctuary of St. John's. All events are open to the public and a freewill offering will be gathered at each event.
For almost 20 years, St. John’s Lutheran Church in downtown Des Moines has hosted a Midweek Music Series, featuring the best in music that Des Moines has to offer. Each week at 12:05, a 25-minute concert, free and open to the public, takes place in the beautiful, stained glass-lit neo-gothic sanctuary located on the corner of Sixth and Watson Powell. After the concert, audience members are invited to head downstairs to meet with friends old and new, over a light lunch, priced at $6.00.
