Children & Families
Kids in church
We love kids and we don't care how much fuss, noise or movement they make! Even if they lay on the floor. Even if they need 437 goldfish and a sucker to be quiet. Even if you stand in the back swaying back-and-forth holding them even when it's hard. Even when your row looks like a small hurricane just came through. Bring them to church. Let them see you worship. Let them see you pray. Let them see you running toward the savior. Because if they don't see and learn these things from you, who are they going to learn them from? The world will teach them it's not a priority. The world will direct them far off course, confuse them, and lie to them. The world won't teach them about Jesus. That's our job. Bring them to church. We love your kids and look forward to seeing (and hearing!) them here every Sunday.
Raising your family in faith is an important job. You want to get it right, and we want to help!
Our programs are safe places where your child will learn about what God has done for them through Jesus, out of love, and they can trust him no matter what. Our Kids spaces are rigorously cleaned on a regular basis.
Students5th - 12th Grade
5th and 6th grades focus on learning more about the Bible in a fun environment.
7th and 8th grades take part in our Confirmation program where they learn the basics of the Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective.
High School programs are designed to help teens take ownership of their faith. We talk about real life issues that teens face and how to navigate them as a believer. Students can get involved in our high school worship band, enjoy lots of hang out time and fellowship, and participate in Mission Trips and national youth events. We support each other and grow together in a Christian environment.
We believe that learning more about the Bible and our faith helps us to put our faith into action, helps us to trust in God’s promises more deeply, and understand His plan for our lives more clearly. At St. John our Bible Study groups double as Life groups - we do more than study the Bible, we go through life together. We support each other and grow together as we live in Biblical community. We offer several Bible study groups on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. Some are offered on campus, others meet in private homes and some have online options. We hope and pray that you will get connected to God’s Word and others at St. John.
