Children's Ministry at St John

 

At St. John our kids (infant through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they connect with Jesus and each other in a creative and relevant way.

 

YOUR FIRST SUNDAY MORNING VISIT

Here’s what to expect as a guest of St. John.Children of all ages are encouraged to attend a Worship Service with their parents.  A nursery for children under 3 years old is available during all three services, 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00.

Sunday School Small Groups for Kids 2yrs old through 6th grade meet at 9:30am.  Kids connect with Jesus through Bible study & applying the Word to everyday life and connect with friends & adult leaders through games and hands-on activities.  Our theme is year is Adventures in KidsTown.  Following Jesus is a great adventure!  We will journey together through life while exploring the distant lands, interesting people, and wild adventures of the Bible.

 

HOW CHECK-IN WORKS

Our Kids Check-in stations are located at the center/ weekday preschool entrance. 
 
The first time your child attends a Sunday School Small Group, you’ll be asked to fill out a paper form with basic personal information. (After your initial visit, you will be able to use our quick electronic check-in system.) You and your child will be given matching nametags. Then one of our friendly greeters will lead you and your child to their appropriate room. When you pick up your child from that same room at 10:30, you will show the adult leader your matching tag.
 

KIDS IN WORSHIP

We love children to worship with us at any service! Worship bags are available for kids at the back of the Worship Center, and we have a family room where the service can be seen and heard with a little more privacy.

During Worship at 11:00, we offer a kids teaching time, THE MESSAGE for kids, for 3yr olds-2nd graders during the sermon. During the video before the sermon, you may choose to send your child to the front left exit of the Worship Center. They will walk right across the hall, then return to the Worship Center at the conclusion of the sermon. Please watch for them as they return in case they forget where you are sitting. If this is your child’s first time to attend, please accompany them for a quick registration.

 

Our Healthy Nursery & Room Policy

Rest assured that our nursery and small group rooms are clean, safe places for your children. Toys and surfaces are sanitized and bedding is washed after each use.

 

Most importantly, please do not bring any sick children to the nursery or small groups. The first priority is the health and safety of all of our little ones, and we must make every possible attempt to control the spread of illness. Children who have had fever, vomiting, or diarrhea within the last 24 hours, symptoms of nausea, sore throat, runny nose, head lice, or any contagious rash need to stay with you.
