Children & Youth

Children. Always Welcome.

Children are a vital part of St. John Lutheran. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment for spiritual growth. We seek to nurture young people in their relationship with our Lord and Savior within the context of their families, congregation and community. We celebrate the growth of each young person in their relationship with Jesus Christ including their response to His saving grace.

Sunday School

All Children (3K – 8th Grade) are invited to gather for Sunday School. Classes provide children with the opportunity to hear Bible stories, sing songs, make new friends, and learn of their Savior, Jesus Christ, in an age appropriate setting. Sunday School meets each week, on Sunday, in the School classrooms from 9:30-10:15 AM.

Confirmation classes are open to youth of the congregation and their friends. Confirmation instruction occurs in 6th, 7th, & 8th grade. During this time, youth are formally taught to best appreciate what God has done in their lives with the gift of faith begun at their baptism. After considerable study they are given the opportunity to “confirm” that faith and to dedicate themselves towards greater faith maturity, especially in confessing the truth of the Scriptures.
