We believe that when Jesus said “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them” he meant it, and meant it for all God’s children, ages 3 to 93! We currently have weekly Sunday School classes for adults.
We also have a once-a-month “Funday Sunday” for the children of our church and those of the local community, with a morning gathering time at the start of our session that brings us all together.
Come on in and be shaped by God’s love!

Our Focus Bible Verse:
Mark 12:30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Our VBS Mission Project is the Grain of Rice Project, which was begun by a young woman from Brookville. They developed and serve a school in Kenya. A volunteer speaker will be coming to VBS, and all are invited.
For July, this will be a Love offering for our congregation! St John’s will match up to $1000 raised for the Grain of Rice Project!
Donations can be placed in the little red beach bucket in the sanctuary.
