Christian Education

Our summer children’s program is Building Faith Brick by Brick and began July 7. What is your favorite bible story? Sign up to teach it in this wonderful hands-on method during July or August. Our children will share what they have learned during announcements or refreshment time. They are also building a prayer wall with their prayers each week. Add yours by asking for a paper “brick” from the ushers and placing it in the offering plate.

Our summer Adult Formation is an informal discussion of the Epistle and Gospel for the week. Pick up a sheet of background information and questions and gather with other parishioners during Fellowship time. There is no assigned leader to this program. It is a time to learn from each other.


 

Christian Education at St. John's is overseen by the Christian Growth and Development Committee and includes Adult Education, Church School, and Youth Programs.

Adult Education

Adult Education is comprised of programs to allow the adults in our parish to expand their Christian education.There are also several series of class each year ranging in topic from A History of the Prayer Book to an Inquirer's Class.

Beginning March 10 we will discuss Living the Way of Love: A 40-Day Devotional by Mary Bea Sullivan. We will meet at 11 am on Sundays.

Joyful Journey

Formation  for our young members Pre-K through 5th grade begins its program year on September 16. The class meets at 9:30 am and the children join their families in worship at the Peace. We use the lectionary-based Spark Curriculum.Our formation for children continues in the summer. In 2018 one of our college students developed and taught a curriculum which she developed called “God’s Green Earth” featuring bible stories and activities focused on water, animals, and plants.

Youth Programs

St. John's has in the past implemented a nationally used and praised youth program entitled Journey to Adulthood. We are currently in a period of transition with our program.
