Children / Youth

St. John’s has two active Youth groups:


The Yo-Yo’s are for children from Preschool to 6th grade.  We meet monthly on the 1st Sunday of the month after worship for about an hour, in the Youth room.  Activities include a life application message, planning future fun and mission related and/or engaging in such activities or crafts.  Families are invited to attend but not required.

An older Youth group for grades 7-12 has been formed focused on fellowship and mission.  They are meeting every 2nd and 4th Sunday evenings at 6:00 in the Youth room.

Christmas Is Coming!!

    The Youth again will be sponsoring Operation Christmas Child.  Shoeboxes will be available soon along with information and labels, if you choose to shop yourself.   But if not, the youth will also be running their own warehouse where you can pack your box without ever leaving the church building!  November 17th will be your chance to shop in Fellowship Hall after worship!


You may be thinking turkey, but we are already be thinking about Christmas Eve.  Sign ups for the Dramatization will be posted by mid November, so if you’ve always wanted to be Joseph….watch for the sign up outside room 115.  First come, first sign!  Rehearsal will be the Saturday morning before.  This is NOT limited to children!!!!!  Anyone may don a costume and celebrate this most blessed and holy night!
