Children's Ministry and Sunday School
3 years old - 4th grade
Children's Ministry is important work at St. John's! Our role is to help kids live out their faith by loving God and serving others and to help them to know that everywhere they go, their faith goes with them. We continue to create new ways to meet families where they are at and find ways to bring the love and hope of Jesus to our kids no matter where they are at...this year we have found ways to do that at home, online, by the campfire, outside on the sidewalk, or even in the car!

You are invited and welcomed to bring your family to worship! In-person worship in the sanctuary began May 9 at 10:00 am! You no longer need to register! Just bring a mask and come as you are at 10:00am. There is a 200-person limit each Sunday. Parking lot worship continues at 8:30am, you can bring lawn chairs and join us outside on these wonderful summer days! We also have our online worship each Sunday with a children’s sermon.
Between worships play and explore: Play on the playground or walk in our new walking trail in the back 40 or take a look at our vegetable garden growing. Lots of things to explore and ways to spark faith in your young ones!
Welcome home, St. John's!
We began the year with Family Sidewalk Sunday School, we moved to an online model and we ended the year back outside for Family Sidewalk Sunday School.

Return to Indoor Sunday School We will be back to the indoor Sunday School routine when our St. John's Return Team approves a plan for a time that is safe to be in the building. Here is a look of what this ministry generally looks like....Our Sunday School runs the school year from September to May from 9:40-10:30 am. Sunday School uses a homegrown curriculum designed specifically for St. John's. It's a large group - small group model that uses puppets, science experiments and music to teach Bible stories. In small groups, kids will use their five senses to discover more about the Bible story! Sometimes that even has kids in the kitchen cooking! Sunday School Bibles stories also align with the preaching text that is used in worship! That way parents and grandparents are equipped to talk about the story with their kids!
