Children's Ministry

 

Children's Books
 
In August, an audio book titled Sundays will be emailed to families or individuals on the Children's Ministry list. These 5 minute books will follow a shortened version of our Sunday Children's Service. While the lesson portion will repeat last year's curriculum (year 2 of the curriculum is delayed), most lessons will focus on another aspect of the given biblical story. There are two levels to each story.
                        1.  Audio- for all aged children
                        2.  Written Information (extra facts)- for older children
 
To get the full effect, have your child watch and listen twice, first to enjoy and second to participate.
 
Supplies to participate:
  • A floor cushion or pillow
  • crayons/colored pencils and paper
  • A shaker instrument (this could be a jar filled with uncooked rice or beans) or a drum type instrument

 St. John's Children's Ministry Vision Statement
 
St. John’s Children’s Ministry exists to help our children know and love God through liturgical worship, play, and service. Our prayer is that as our children become confident in God’s love, their new life in Christ, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit they will grow into individuals filled with deep love for God, others, and creation.
 
Children comprise a significant portion of our congregation and hold a valuable place in our worship and life.  As soon as children are developmentally ready, we want them to participate with us in the sacraments of the church.  Our size allows us to get to know each other's children and grow together--learning from one another as we go.
 
 
  St. John's takes seriously the care and protection of the children among us. To read the Child Abuse and Sexual Misconduct Policy in its entirety, please click here.
