Programs
Sunday School

Sunday school is open to children who are 3 years and older. We currently are using the Group Publishing's Living Inside Out.

The children participate in worship once a month, and are encouraged to join worship the other weeks. Each year the children have a least one service project where they do an outreach to help those in need.

We have monthly activities for the children outside of Sunday school to foster relationships between the children and give them a chance to have fun and experience new things together.


Confirmation Class

Our confirmation class is a 2-year program that is open to those who are at least entering the 5th grade and are baptized. The program consists of a study of the Holy Supper, the Lutheran Confessions (including Holy Baptism, The Ecumenical Creeds, & the Small Catechism) and of Holy Scripture.


Caring Kids 

Caring Kids is a program that runs from September through March. It meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30pm.

The program is open to children 4 and older and during the two hours the children enjoy making crafts and are provided with a light snack. The crafts are donated to area nursing homes and to our sick and shut-ins.

St. John's is involved in various events and continues to look for ways of supporting the community around us.
