St. John’s offers educational opportunities for children and adults. New participants are always welcome. Please talk to clergy on Sunday or contact the church office if you have any questions.
Christian formation is a lifelong process. St. John’s Episcopal Church is committed to the following:
- Nurturing young people in the Christian way and life, through learning and fellowship in a safe and loving environment.
- Preparing children and youth as they grow toward making a mature profession of faith in Confirmation.
- Welcoming adults who wish to learn more about the Christian faith and the Episcopal Church.
- Continuing to offer learning and fellowship for adults, as we continue in the apostles teaching and fellowship and learning to live out our own baptismal covenant.
Please contact the Rector if you would like to learn more about baptism, confirmation, or becoming a member of St. John’s.
Children’s Chapel for elementary school age children : Offered during the 10:15 Sunday service, the children gather in St Mary's Chapel and learn about the Gospel lesson for the day through prayer, discussion, and activities.
