Sharing the Love of Christ

In the church.

In the community.

In the world.

St. John Youth & Families Ministry

Faith Formation for Youth & Families

This fall we are getting out of the house and spending socially distanced time together outdoors to experience God’s creation!  The exact same materials will be available to everyone on this webpage and through an email to use at home.   You can expect:

  • opportunities for connection with other St. John families and pastors

  • a unified lesson plan for kids across grades Pre-K (4-year-olds) through 6th grade

  • simple home resources to...

    • become familiar with bible stories from the Old and New Testaments

    • inspire creativity and using the imagination

    • encourage families to think and talk about their faith together


COVID-19 Response

Sunday School has been adapted for in-person social distancing as well as parent-guided, home-based instruction using downloadable resources.  We look forward to another great year together.
