Childcare

St. John’s offers professionally staffed children’s nurseries every Sunday from 8:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Our staff is trained in Safeguarding God's Children policies. Nurseries are located on the bottom floor of the preschool wing (through the double doors across Alfriend Hall and down the steps). Parents will receive a pager for use during church services.

Children's Homily and Children's Chapel

Children in Pre-K thru Second Grade are invited forward to the steps in the church after the Gospel reading for a Children's homily given by Sunday's preacher. After the homily, children go to Children's Chapel in the Choir room with our volunteers for their own story and singing time. They return in time for the exchanging of the Peace. Children's Homily and Children's Chapel occur at the 9 a.m. service only (10 a.m. service during the summer schedule).

Children's "Quiet as a Mouse" bags and Bulletins.

Each week you will find baskets with small totes full of crayons, paper, and soft toys. We invite your children to take a bag with them to their pew if they would like to color or draw during the service. We also offer "The Sunday Paper" affixed to a clipboard each week which illustrates the Gospel lesson for the day in cartoon form. These baskets can be found by the back pew in the main sanctuary and right inside the door by the Chapel. Please return the clipboards and totes at the end of the service so we can have them ready for the next service!

Nursery– 6 months to 5 yrs

Our professional childcare staff in the nursery will look after your children every Sunday from 8:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 p.m to 8:45 p.m.

Our Children's Sunday School Program during the Academic Year

St. John's invites all preschool through 5th grade aged children to join the Sunday School programs this fall! Classes will start on September 11. Registration is in August but any child is welcome to join a class at anytime even if not registered! Teachers will have the registration forms once classes start so you complete it then also. All teachers are Safeguarding God's Children trained and there will always be two teachers in the classrooms.

Each grade has their own memory work, milestone, and Christmas Ornament and grades 1-5 each have turns taking up the Oblations during the Sunday services. NEW THIS YEAR will be one Sunday each semester when all the children in Sunday School will meet in the chapel for a Sunday School Sing with the choir! Mark your calendars for October 2 for the fall fun sing! Also NEW THIS YEAR will be a combination 4th and 5th grade class!

We don't want you to miss out on Sunday School because you don't know where the classrooms are - please ask an usher, greeter, or parishioner and we will get you to the right place! Please contact Lizbeth Childs, children's Sunday school coordinator, at lizbethchilds@gmail.com or Mother Abi with any questions!

Preschoolers and Kindergarteners meet in the classrooms above the Nursery with teachers using Godly Play to tell Bible stories and learn all about Jesus and God's love. Godly Play is a Montessori inspired program that allows children to wonder and self discover through play, beautiful wooden figures, and felt landscapes. Each Sunday the children will also "break bread" together during snack and typically do a craft that is centered on that week's theme. Since children may be in preschool for several years, the preschool Sunday school classroom has lots of children repeat until they are old enough to move over to the Kindergarten class. Children in the Godly Play classrooms will learn The Doxology as their memory work!\

First Grade, Festal Eucharist, meets in the Sunday School wing on the second story above the library. During this special year, they will tour the entire church, hear from and interview the Priests and lay leaders, and reflect on Baptism. Festal means "Celebratory" and comes from the same root as "festive." At the end of the Sunday School year, the church celebrate with them as the class joins in Eucharist together. Children in first grade will study and memorize The Lord's Prayer and make beautiful shell cross Christmas Ornaments. 

Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grades meet in the Sunday School wing on the second story above the library. New this year will be the combining of the Fourth and Fifth grades! Second through fifth grades will all study these themes this fall: The Story of Samuel, What is Worship, Advent Stations of the Crèche, and Stewardship. The teachers all have a fun and unique way to teach the lessons using food, crafts, games, theatre, and more! Second graders will learn about the Fruits of the Spirit and make popsicle manger Christmas ornaments. Third graders will learn about the Beatitudes and make puzzle piece wreath Christmas ornaments. Fourth and Fifth graders will study the 10 Commandments and make tower bell and nativity scene wreath Christmas ornaments.
