Grow With Us

Confirmation for Teens

Our teenagers were confirmed in May of 2023 after two years of learning and studying.  Their adult mentors were with them as they journeyed through this process.  Judy, our faithful church school education leader, is shown in the picture as our young people were confirmed.

Youth Spiritual Formation

In 2024, Youth Spiritual Formation is held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.  All children ages 5 and up are welcome.  The Episcopal learning platform, Weaving God’s Promises, is our curriculum.  Four teachers, who rotate Sundays in pairs, are all long time St. John’s members and are safe church certified.

Younger children are welcome to stay in church with their parents.   Upon entering the church, children will be given a small bag with coloring pencils or crayons, as well as a beautifully done Children’s Worship Bulletin and coloring pages by Illustrated Ministries. This gives children the opportunity to engage in the subject matter of the morning’s Gospel lesson at an age-appropriate level, while their accompanying adult listens to the sermon. Colorful, modern Spark Children’s Bibles are also available at the back of the church.

Adult Formation

At St. John’s, we love to gather together to grow in faith and the love of God. What this looks like takes many different forms: a weekly lay-led Bible Study of the Sunday Scriptures, the Women’s Prayer Circle (every other Tuesday at 4pm), the Men’s Hiking Group, seasonal Zoom book groups led by a priest, and occasional guest speakers on topics of interest to the congregation.
