Kids Zone

JK and up

Kids Zone is our exciting Sunday School program here at St. John. The children begin the service by participating in several worship songs with their parents in the sanctuary. After the songs, the children leave for a time of group worship together where the theme of the week is introduced. The children are then divided into age appropriate groups where the teachers/mentors reinforce the weekly theme through games, skits, crafts and exploring the Bible.


Grades 1-5

PHK (powerhouse kids) takes place every Thursday from 6:30-7:45 during the school year. PHK is a high energy super active program for the children of St. John and the surrounding community. Here each child is given a Bible of their own which we use to reinforce our “back to basics” lesson to ensure a strong foundation in the faith. There is always room for fun, food and chaos as the children and parents learn that St. John is a warm, welcoming and safe place for the whole family.


Grades 6-8

Every Thursday from 6:30 – 7:45, during the school year a mix of kids from St. John and the community meet for Fun, Friendship and Faith. An evening of fun fast paced games is complimented with singing, dancing and even the occasional science experiment all with the goal of discovering who Jesus is and what God’s plan is for our lives. We look past the Bible stories in search of the lessons and the meaning that the Bible provides. Our goal is to begin the search for truth and understanding in our life as we learn to be God’s light in a sometimes dark world.
