ENGAGING KIDS | PARTNERING WITH PARENTS
At St. John's Church, we have an environment for everyone in your family. From birth-12th grade we have a strategy in place to help your child develop an authentic faith. Rest assured, your kids will love coming to church and will be begging you to come back!

UPDATE: 
We will be welcoming our families back to in-person programming on Sunday, November 1 during the 9:00 a.m. Service (3k through 8th grade) and Wednesday, October 25 at 6:00 p.m. (high school). In addition, we will continue to provide curriculum online through our "At-Home" link below. Please contact us at kids@stjohnselkhorn.com if there is anything we can do to serve you and your family!
