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 come to life as Alan Lull teaches our children during praise 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, with Alan in the library.

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. Please join us after Easter on the following Sundays: April 15th, 22nd, 29th, and May 6th.

Easter Egg Hunt

The Hunt was a success! I want to send out a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who helped stuff eggs, donate candy, and used their God-given gifts the day of the Hunt! I also want to thank everyone who came out for the day, the team had so much fun with you all! Keep in touch to hear when we will host next year's Easter Egg Hunt. For now, enjoy some pictures from the day!

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.
