Children and Family Ministry believes that parents are the best faith teachers their children will ever have! St. John's partners with parents and caregivers as they teach, model, and share Jesus Christ with their children and family. We are better when we do life together!
"Safeguarding God's Children" is a required training for all St. John's volunteers. This class equips leaders and assistants in best practices for interacting and ministering to your children.
Preschool-5th grade meet in the Parish Life Center at 9:15 a.m. during the school year for an energetic, fun opening. Following the opening, classes continue downstairs.
Vacation Bible School
4 year olds to those who have just completed 4th grade are encouraged to join us for VBS! Vacation Bible School will be in the mornings on July 17-20 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. We will have a picnic on Friday, July 21 at Southwinds Park at p.m. Everyone is invited to the picnic, whether you come to VBS or not!
We are still looking for volunteers to help with Vacation Bible School. We need more teachers, because we will have several groups of 5 students of various ages to encourage children to build new relationships and to help one another. Help us try something new for our students!
We also need station leaders for Games, Imagination Station, and Bible Discovery classrooms. No matter your talents, we would love to have you join us for the week!
A staffed nursery is available during all four weekend worship services for children ages four and younger. The nursery is also available during the Wednesday Sprout! ministry and Thursday choir rehearsals, as well as other special ministry events. The nursery is located near the Parish Life Center Lobby across from the restrooms.
