At St. John’s we are excited to share that we intentionally choose curricula that is Progressive in nature.
Please come join our Children’s Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. every Sunday morning as they journey through lessons that are progressive, faithful, and inspired.
At St. John’s United Methodist Church we welcome children! Our desire is for all children who come to St. John’s to experience God’s love in such a way that they will want to share love with others.
At St. John’s this is nurtured through…
- interacting with caring adults
- creating friendships with peers
- studying the Bible and Christian heritage
- learning to apply Biblical principles in our lives
- worshiping with other Christians
- working together in mission and outreach
Activities for Children
Acolytes: 3rd – 5th graders help lead us in worship each week by serving as acolytes. Opportunities to participate in acolyte training are given several times a year.
Vacation Bible School: Each summer children 3 years – through graduated 5th grade enjoy five days of learning, serving and having fun. Through stories, drama, music, science, outreach projects, worship, and games they learn more about Biblical stories and about loving others as Jesus did.
