Children & Youth

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!

    Bible stories told by Jesus himself!  Three nights, three parables–stories that Jesus told!

    The Lost Sheep          ~          The Prodigal Son        ~          The Good Samaritan

    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.
