This day camp will be held in place of our annual Vacation Bible School which has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

Blast!

Kids, are you ready to have a BLAST on Sundays?!

 

In our Bible Learning And Sharing Time (also known as Sunday School) you can have breakfast with your parents; engage in fun activities; join in song and dance; hear and experience the Bible story for the day, meet in small groups to discuss how the Bible story can be related to our lives, as well as do an art activity, pray together and who knows what else?! What do you say? Join us.. it will be a BLAST!

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

 

Our Mission: “Know Jesus. Make Jesus Known.”

 

Our Hope:

Our hope for all children and their parents / guardians is that they will find St. John to be a safe, meaningful and inspiring place for learning the stories of the Bible and songs that celebrate the God of the Universe who speaks to us through it. Ultimately, we hope that children will not only be readers of the Word but doers of it as well.

 

We seek to nurture children and their love of God:

  • through weekly gatherings (especially Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings) and through special events such as Milestone celebrations, Bible camp, etc. We hope to lay a foundation of inquisitive and joy filled faith learning.
  • by encouraging and creating a foundation for meaningful dialogue and practices. These opportunities are especially important between children and their parents, because that is where faith will be developed the most, within a child’s home.
  • by providing support and resources for parents and guardians to: help them better communicate with their child regarding spiritual matters, encourage the reading of the Bible together, and teach them to pray and bless one another. In doing this, parents/guardians fulfill the Deuteronomy 6 passage that speaks of how faith is passed on from generation to generation.
