Youth and Family
In a typical church, there are three programs running at the same time: the adults’ service, the youth service, and the children’s service. Here at St. John’s Episcopal Church, we want to challenge the typical system and combine the three into one family service. Our Family Service is a modified Holy Eucharist Rite II traditional service that allows for intergenerational worship. Our goal is simple: introducing children, youth, and adults to our rich tradition to encounter God and begin a relationship with Him. We meet Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m.
All our Sunday Schools start at 10:10 a.m. following the Family Service reception in our Common Room.
Our nursery opens at 9:00 a.m. and accommodates children between the ages of 0 to 4. Our goal is to allow children to not only have a safe environment to play in, but to also help them grow in understanding of God and how loving He is.
Our Elementary Sunday School consists of children PreK through 6th and focuses on building a foundation for children to read the Bible and follow its teachings, specifically through games and activities relating to Biblical stories.
Our Youth Classes build off the foundation of our Elementary Sunday School and teach how to apply the Bible to real world scenarios. The goal is to strengthen relationship with Christ and community with fellow Christian youth.
