At St. John’s we love children. Families with Children make up nearly half of our congregation. What sets us apart from other churches is that we are committed to including our children in the worshipping life of the church. Our services include a brief children's sermon, a lot of interactive liturgy, and special activities for the kids.
our children's ministry Philosophy
In many churches, Children are separated from their parents from early childhood through college and even beyond. And it is all too common that many church-raised young adults never find a spiritual home in the adult portion of their home congregations.
At Saint John’s, our goal is to worship God as a family of families and individuals. Thus we hold to the ancient spiritual discipline of children and adults worshipping together. All children are welcome in our service, and we truly mean it when we say that we don’t mind a few noisy distractions.
We work to make our worship service pleasant and engaging for kids. Our liturgy is interactive by design and, our sermon begins with a short, interactive children’s message. We also provide children's bulletins. So our kids are spiritually engaged throughout.
