Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2018!
This year, St. John’s is making a big change to our Vacation Bible School. We’re having VBS in the evening! In the past, many families haven’t been able to participate because of work schedules, so we’re excited to offer this new option. VBS will be June 18-21, from 5:30-7:30 pm! Please note that dinner will only be served from 5:30 til 6:00pm, so if you'd like your child to eat with us, please arrive promptly at 5:30pm.
Our theme is Compassionate Kids: Learning to Love Like God. We’ll explore Biblical stories of compassion through storytelling, music, art, drama and acts of service that help kids discover what it means to live a compassionate life today.
You can pre-register your children, ages 3 through rising 5th graders, to attend here. The nursery will be available for infants and young toddlers (please also pre-register for the nursery).
Diving into Deep Blue!
Based on the award-winning Deep Blue Kids Bible, this awe-inspiring resource for children includes adventure, exciting stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games - all combined into a living-faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!
Deep Blue Kids exists to reach, empower, and equip children, and those who care for them, with grace-based resources that help them on the journey to understand themselves as children of God, explore and deepen their relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and love and serve God and neighbor.
Parents' Night Out
Children ages 3-12 are invited to join us on the third Wednesday of every month during the school year for Parent's Night Out! The kids will enjoy dinner together, music, and art, all while parent get to spend an hour and a half being adults! We hope you will invite your children's friends to join us as well. See Rebekah Gienapp if you need a signed release form for your child or their friends. The nursery will also be open during this time to give parents the option to bring their tiniest family members under the age of three as well.
St. John’s is especially blessed to have a faithful and dependable team of nursery workers on staff. We offer nursery services to our littlest members, from ages six weeks to five years young. The nursery is a safe and welcoming place where children can play and learn while their parents and guardians participate in worship or other church functions. Because the safety of children is our most important concern, we abide by practices outlined in our Safe Sanctuary policy. The nursery is open Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and as needed during other church programming.
