Children & Youth Ministries

Faith Zone

Every Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

The Faith Zone is St. John’s Workshop Rotation Model of education, which is based on the concepts of the Multiple Intelligence’s theory. All classes study the same Bible Story for one month, with every workshop approaching the story in a different way. Children in K-5 grades participate in the rotations. Sixth and seventh graders meet in their own class in the Youth Room. Due to Covid-19, Faith Zone is currently not meeting in person. But you can watch our "Faith Zone Moments" here:

Senior High Youth Fellowship

Having fun while making a difference

The Youth Fellowship meets regularly once a month and participates in a wide variety of activities. Each summer, the group takes a week-long mission trip to a distant destination. Youth nearly always return with new perspectives and memorable experiences.


Affirmation of Faith

Eighth graders participate in a weekly class over the course of a year studying the fundamentals of our faith. They participate in two retreats throughout the year. At the conclusion of the year, they profess their faith in worship and then affirm their baptismal vows as they are welcomed as official members of the church.
