Children's Ministry and Sunday School
3 years old - 4th grade
St. John’s is committed to give every child the opportunity to learn about God’s love and building a faith that will support kids at every stage of life. During Covid, our commitment has expanded to meet every child where they are, so that they can learn about God’s love in an environment that fits the needs of their family. We continue to work with our St. John’s Return Team so that can review all of our program procedures to ensure that we are providing programs that follow the current CDC guidelines.
We will kick off our year on Rally Sunday, September 12! Please come and get all the information you will need for the new education year! Calendars, program and volunteer information will be available so that your family has everything they need to get the year off to a great start!
Sunday School 2021-2022
What will Firelight Sunday School look like this year?
We will have two options for our pre-k-4th grade:
Firelight Sunday School
Sidewalk/Firelight Sunday School online
Option 1- Firelight Sunday School: 9:10am-10:10am
Ignite Opening! New this year, we will begin by gathering in the sanctuary for our Firelight Sunday School following early worship. We will do an introduction to our story, play our new bells and our special puppet friends, Abel and Zabel will stop by on occasion to help us learn our story.
Small group time! Following our opening we will go to expanded classrooms in the fellowship hall with grade specific groups. We will learn more about the love and hope of Jesus as we dig deeper into the story using games, science experiments, art and roadmaps! Yep! We will be learning a lot about navigation this year. Our theme will follow our lectionary sermon series…We Make The Road By Walking. We will use an ancient Bible Map each week to find out where our Bible story begins and we will use God as our guide to see where it navigates us!
Option 2-Sidewalk/Firelight Sunday School online
During this option, we will meet outside from 10:10-10:30 on the east side of the building to discover our story for the first 5 Sundays. Then, we will go online with take-home monthly packs with activities that will continue our journey learning the miracle of God’s love and the hope of Jesus. We will mirror the theme and activities of Firelight Sunday School.
Please sign up on the Sunday School Registration link for one of the two Sunday School options.
You are invited and welcomed to bring your family to worship! In-person worship in the sanctuary began May 9 at 10:00 am, we have now added another indoor worship at 8:30am. Please wear a mask if you or your child isn't fully vaccinated. We also have our online worship each Sunday with a children’s sermon posted each week on our home page.
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!
