Children and Family Ministry believes that parents are the best faith teachers their children will ever have! St. John's is dedicated to partnering with and equipping parents and caregivers to inspire children to know God’s love and grace. We aim to teach, model, and share Jesus Christ with all children and their families through worship, study, prayer, and service. We are better when we do life together!

Safety

All our volunteers receive a background check and must complete our Safeguarding God's Children volunteer class. This class equips leaders and assistants in best practices for interacting with and ministering to your children. We want to provide your children with a safe, caring environment at all times.

 

 

Nursery

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 evening ministries 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.
