Saint John’s Sunday School
Our Theme this Fall is Becoming God’s People
We begin with the story of Noah and follow the stories of men and women who through time became the people of Israel.
Children will explore these great stories of the Old Testament through story-telling, games, crafts, and interactive play. Our dedicated Sunday School rooms have been decorated with pictures and scenes from these stories of men and women who experienced the call of God whether they were ready or not and became his people.
Our mission is to educate our children in the Christian faith and in the life of this community, providing a firm foundation of faith for our children throughout their lives.
Our vision is to guide our children in discovering the stories of the Bible and applying the lessons we learn to daily life.
We will provide opportunities for:
Fellowship – provide positive interaction that provides encouragement and support
Service- promote opportunities to serve God and minister to others
Outreach – equip and motivate teachers and children to reach people for Christ and incorporate them into the life of the Church
- Study the stories of the Bible in an age appropriate setting
- Meet the basic life needs of our children- spiritually, socially, emotionally, etc.
- Actively involve our children in Bible study and Sunday School
- Provide teacher training in practical ways to guide and motivate children in the learning process
We hope that you and your children will come to St. John’s and worship with us. Sept. 16th is Rally Sunday and after the 9:15 service, we will have games for the children in the playground and information and signups for our church ministries. On September 23rd, Sunday School will begin after Eucharist at the 9:15 Service and will end at 10:55 AM.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time!
