Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes [a] child… welcomes me” (Matthew 18:5). Children are our present and our future, our hope, our  teachers, our inspiration. They are full participants in the life of the church and in the realm of God.

God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from abuse. God calls us to create communities of faith where children and adults grow safe and strong. Safe Sanctuaries is our response to this church wide challenge. Safe Sanctuaries Pledge.

At St. John, we believe in our kids and in our biblical responsibility to our kids. We strive for a program that is centered on love, growth, and fun. For worship details, click here. We are updating our nursery rosters. If you have a child 0-5, please click here
