Family Faith Formation – Children

Children meet weekly in three classrooms according to age (nursery for pre-K, K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade classes). They gather together for learning, fellowship, music, and crads. Adult volunteer teachers and helpers always welcome and greatly needed! All volunteers are required to complete the “SafeChurch” training and a background check.

Youth Faith Formation – Teens

The St. John’s Youth Ministry seeks to provide middle and high schoolers with a safe, fun, and restful environment to learn three key truths: that God loves them, our community loves them, and that their lives and voices matter. Through conversations about the sacred stories and our own narratives, we strive to help our young people see how our Christian faith intersects with our everyday lives.

If you would like to learn more or volunteer, please contact our Youth Director, Chris Williamson, at
