Children are an important part of Discipleship at St. John's. On the following pages, you'll find ways to involve and engage your children in various activities and lessons.
St. john's will host four Sunday evening Fellowship NIghts for all ages this program year:
October 21, January 27th, March 3rd, and April 28th
These evenings will begin at 5:15pm with a church-wide potluck followed by age-specific activities that will run from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, including KIDS' CLUB - a night away and a night to play! This is a time for children to have fun playing together at church while enjoying Christian fellowship and learning what it means to be a Christian. Last year the children had a blast playing wiffle ball, "bowling," making crafts, and more!
We offer fun and educational Sunday School classes for children ages 2 and 3 on up! (A nursery is available and staffed for children under 2.) Discipleship opportunities are offered for all ages from 9:45-10:45am on Sunday mornings from September through May. Parents – See the Adults page for opportunities available for you while your children are in Sunday School.
