At St. John's UMC we understand that children are the future. We partner with parents to lead by example, teach about God, and actively participate in the daily development of a life that places Christ and others before ourselves.

    We provide loving child care for our smallest members every Sunday. All of our nursery staff has passed a background check and is Safe Sanctuary certified. Nursery care is available from 9:30 am-12:00 pm unless otherwise noted. Children, birth through preschool, are welcome to join us.  Children in our nursery will be taught a brief Bible lesson during the 10:45 am worship service. 

  • Sunday School

    Children, kindergarten through 5th grade are encouraged to be begin worship with their families every Sunday during our 10:45 am worship service. During the beginning part of this service children will be dismissed to their Sunday School classroom (lead by a Safe Sanctuary certified congregation member). Our children are currently “diving deep” into the award winning Deep Blue curriculum from Cokesbury. Children experience learning through the Bible and all about God’s love through; scripture based Bible stories, a brief video, crafts, hands on serve projects, and games.
