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 Foundation
We are pleased to announce we are starting Youth Spiritual Formation the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. All children ages 5 and up are welcome. The Episcopal learning platform, Weaving God’s Promise will be our curriculum. Four teachers, who will rotate Sundays in pairs, are all long time St. John’s members and are safe church certified.
We are excited for the beginning of a new chapter of learning for our precious children. We are a loving welcoming community. Come join us!
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.
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.
