Kids' Discipleship Hour (KDH)
Bring your children to the Early Childhood Center on Sundays from 9:25pm-10:30pm. We provide a safe and encouraging environment for growing warriors ages 3yrs to 7th grade! While they are with us, your warriors will create relationships, learn lessons, and practice being God's disciples! Bible stories and verses become a part of life during our opening time. Afterwards, the 3yr olds through 3rd graders hop off to Games and Crafts, which enhance the bible story. The 4th-7th graders dig deeper into life topics, discussed in the bible story each week.
We can’t forget our little warriors, ages Infants through 2yrs! They are welcome to hang out in the 2yr Room, on the main level of the Early Childhood Center.
Easter Egg Hunt
The St. John’s Family has been hosting this community event for years now. Our annual Easter Egg Hunt is a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to gather at St. John’s for a morning filled with fun, fellowship, and of course EASTER EGGS! It may still be chilly that Saturday so bring a coat and gloves along with your Easter Basket. Children ages 1yr-10yrs are welcome to participate. If you have an infant, please come, but we will understand if it is too difficult to hunt for eggs. Our annual Easter Egg Hunt will start off in the School Gym on Saturday, April 13th beginning at 9:00am. Register online through this link. We hope to see you there!
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
VBS is happening at St. John's next week, 7/6-7/10!
What's the best part of Vacation Bible School for you? Is it the crafts, the dancing, the games? Is it the chance to hear and learn God's Word in a fun and meaningful way? Is it being able to share with others what you made during the week? We've got you covered.
This year, St. John's is hosting a virtual VBS through our YouTube channel, but that doesn't mean you're going to sit in your chair for long!
We have an exciting schedule laid out for the week:
On Monday, stop by St. John's campus to pick up your materials for the week (remember to register so we're ready for you)!
From Tuesday to Thursday, watch a new video each day that introduces the lesson, a song, a craft, and a game for you to learn and enjoy!
On Friday, we'll bring our projects back to the campus, to share them with St. John's and our surrounding community as we bring the creative beauty of God's world to the St. John's Campus for all to see!
To receive your free materials, including a cool bracelet and everything you'll need to make beautiful art, please register online so we can prepare for pickup!
Come and join us as we explore how God has made us to be together -- even when we feel far away!
