Children & Family
There is so much to look forward to this summer at St. Johns! Help us kick off summer in style on June 4th. Following the 10:30 service join us for pizza and a frozen treat, games, event sign ups and pick up a bucket of Summer Sunday School activities. We hope to see you there! Check out all the summer activities below.
Starting June 4th, families can pick up a bucket of Summer Sunday School to go fun. Each bucket is filled with items you can use to keep Jesus a part of your summer. From Bible verses, games, challenges and so much more! Wherever this summer takes you, take your bucket with you and see if you can finish the bucket list of summer fun!
Swing into summer fun! Beginning in June, meet up with your St. John’s friends (and make some new ones!) at Park & Play. The group will meet at different parks in the area a couple times a month at 9:30AM. Register online to receive the schedule and share your favorite park. Once locations are chosen, you’ll receive an email with the schedule as well as a text message the night before.

Sunday School Mission Project

Faith Milestones are all about helping children, families and adults see God in their everyday! We take common events or moments in our lives and the lives of our children to celebrate and ask God to bless them, guide them and be with them. We hope to equip and encourage our families to see that being with God is more than just something we do on Sunday, but that God is a part of our everyday. No matter if we are celebrating the beginning of school, learning something new or welcoming them into the family of God…all these moments are God moments.
