Worship

Children are welcome and encouraged to participate in worship. Children’s bulletins for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12 plus Christ’s Kids Tote Bags and Children’s Bibles are available at both entrances to the Sanctuary.

Nursery / Childcare

The Nursery provides loving and safe childcare for children ages 12 weeks to 5 years on Sunday mornings during the worship services. The Nursery is located in the lower level.

Communion Preparation

Communion preparation is provided for your child when you feel your child is ready to receive the sacrament. Preparation for children and their parents is provided on an individual basis by contacting one of the pastors.

Baptism Preparation

Parents who wish to have their child baptized at St. John’s are asked to attend a preparation session to discuss the meaning of baptism and to talk about the details of the day. Preparation is provided on an individual basis by contacting one of the pastors.

Children’s Library

St. John’s has a wonderful children’s library. It is located adjacent to the southwest entry.
