Children & Families

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.” (Matthew 19:14)

We love children at St. John’s!  In fact, St. John’s is a “Cherish Our Children” congregation. Because we love kids we offer a variety of educational and service opportunities for all ages:

  • Our nursery is a wonderful, safe, and caring place for younger children who are more comfortable in a room full of toys than in the worship service.  The nursery is available each Sunday morning during both worship services. It is staffed by experienced caregivers providing quality child care.
  • For children in worship, Quiet Bags are available on a stand just inside the Sanctuary doors.  These bags contain quiet, busy activities that children can enjoy during services.
  • Sunday School – Starting last fall, Sunday School has a new name . . . Faith Creek Church School!
    • Here at St. John’s, we seek for our Faith Creek ministry to be engaging and fun, while guiding and nurturing faith. In age appropriate classes, children experience Scripture–based lessons that help them relate the Bible to their lives.
    • There are weekly classes for all children, 3 years old – 4th grade during  Sunday worship at 9:00 . Classes are in session from September – May.  Children are welcome to join us at any time during the year!
    • We utilize the “Whirl” curriculum for our weekly lessons. It provides various activities each week that make kids examine the stories in different ways. Activities can range from listening, to drawing, to acting out specific scenes. The learning doesn’t end when class is over. The children’s weekly leaflet from class encourages the entire family to engage faith outside of church.
  • Connect 56 (Faith Formation class for 5th and 6th graders)New this fall, our Faith Formation class for 5th and 6th graders will be called ‘Connect 56’ and happen on Wednesdays from 7:15 – 8:00 (same time as confirmation).  Connect 56 will be that bridge between Faith Creek for younger kids and Confirmation. Using the Bible, Connect curriculum, games and active learning activities, each week’s meeting will be a new adventure!
  • Youth and Children’s Choir on Wednesdays – The goal of St. John’s Children’s Choir is to offer an opportunity for faith enrichment through music and worship leadership. Musical skills are developed and strengthened by singing a variety of songs and playing a variety of instruments.  The choir students also develop worship leadership skills by being trained and given opportunities to be readers, write prayers, create artwork and lead songs for worship services.  St. John’s Youth and Children’s choir will meet on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:30.  All children in grades 4-8 are welcome to join us!
  • Christmas Program – All children 3 years old through 6th grade are invited to participate in a special program of music and word retelling the wonderful Christmas story.
  • Vacation Bible School All children 3 years old – rising 5th graders are invited to join us for summer fun at St. John’s ROAR VBS!  It will be held Monday – Thursday, June 3-6, 2019 from 9 am – noon.  Together, we will discover that even though life gets wild, God is good!  Plan now to join the adventure!  We will have a second VBS in August as well.  More details later . . . . . .
  • Parents Night Out -Safe and fun childcare is provided at church for parents who need an evening to themselves.  We ask that you do sign up for these events as it helps us to plan for adequate staffing for the night.  Check the church calendar for the next PNO!

Parent/Child ‘Grow in Faith Events’

In Baptism, we make a promise to provide instruction in the Christian faith for our children. Here at St. John’s, we want to help celebrate this journey of faith development with special family learning events. These events are educational, experiential, spiritual and fun for parents and children to attend together and will either happen on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The events are designed to be introductions to faith concepts that you as parents can take home and continue to share and discuss with your children.  There is one event for each grade level per year.
