Pennies for Missions

The pennies and change that is collected each Sunday, from the containers in the back of the church, goes to help small mission projects here at St. John's. We are a mission minded church, and this is a small way you can help!

Children's Ministry 

Sunday School - Join us as we learn about God and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today! Each week we’ll hear an exciting Bible story, build scripture memorization, watch an animated Bible story, and complete an engaging activity that ties into the Scripture-filled lesson.

Upcoming lessons: The Tomb is Empty, Paul Changes, Paul Escapes, The Church Grows, and Timothy is Chosen

Children's Time  (during the Worship Service, immediately following the Children's Message).  Children's Time follows a format similar to Sunday School.  We are meeting every Sunday in April. 

Caring Cards  - Join us as we create beautiful cards for our church family and people in our community.
