Christian Education

At St. John’s, we offer education on Sunday mornings for all age groups.  Please contact Angie Mills at (270) 350-2833 with any questions.

Children’s Church is held every Sunday.

It is a simple service geared toward the 2 to 5 -year-old group, though older children who wish to participate are welcome. Children gather on a small rug outside the nursery in the fellowship hall at the beginning of the main service.  Children’s Church offers a basic introduction to prayer, spiritual practices, worship songs, and Bible stories on their level that will give them a foundation and act as a stepping stone to participate in the full service.

Kid’s Sunday School offers classes for preschool through high school.

All classes meet for worship songs at 9:00 am in the Nave on Sunday mornings and then break into classes grouped by age.  We follow a curriculum offered by the Episcopal Church that follows our lectionary series. It offers our children a chance to grow in their understanding of the Episcopal Church and the world around them.   Classes start after Labor Day with a Welcome Back Party and end in May with a morning of Messy Games when school is out for the summer.  Summer Camp and Vacation Bible School are offered each summer.

The Adult Forum meets on Sunday mornings from 9:00 – 10:00 am in the parish office (located across the back yard from the church at 1627 Farmer Ave.) during the school year. It offers a variety of opportunities for participants to go deeper in their understanding of the Christian faith and life. Classes include topics like Bible study, prayer, book discussions, and our connection to the wider Episcopal Church. Each series of classes lasts from two to six weeks, so it’s easy for new participants to jump in.

Dates: The last Sunday of the 2017-18 adult forum will be May 20. Sessions will resume for 2018-19 on September 9.
