St. John's Youth & Families

‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.’ Matthew 19:14

Children, youth, and young adults are most welcome at St. John’s! Not just because the church has a lot to offer them, but because they have so much to offer the church. We are grateful for the gifts and perspectives of our young parishioners, and their presence makes our community whole.

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12-13

The foundation of our Christian faith is the Word: we hear it in the voice of Jesus and in Holy Scripture, we share it in prayer and we encounter it in the silent language of the Holy Spirit that courses through our lives and the lives of our young members. The Word is living and true and at St. John’s children of all ages can encounter it in all manner of ways. Come and see that we are faithful and dedicated to giving even the youngest persons the chance to discover themselves in faith and to wonder at the mystery that unites us all!

So, please explore our offerings for the Christian development of our young parishioners. On the Youth Formation and Worship page you will find a summary of all the Sunday morning programs as well as the opportunity to volunteer with those programs. There you will also find information on our Confirmation class.

Follow the Opportunities for Youth & Families link and discover how St. John’s provides for our young parishioners a chance to share in fellowship and to offer their gifts through service to the greater community.
