» Children

We have expanded our children’s ministry for kindergarten-grade 6. An expanded program of formation and music will be offered at every Sunday of the month! We’ll all meet in the Gathering Space at 9am and children will join their families in church at 10:45am.

Faith formation is an on-going, lifelong process. From womb to tomb we are called into a deeper relationship with our God who first loved us.  It is through faithful connections that your children will come to know and experience God’s love by connecting with each other, and exploring different ways to pray and practice their faith. Godly Play is a Montessori-based approach to religious education, using a multi-sensory approach to telling Bible stories with three-dimensional materials.

Sunday Schedule:

9am: Faith Formation
Grades K-3 meet for Godly Play
Grades 4-6 meet for faith formation based on the Scripture readings for the day
Parents meet for Young Families Small Group

9:30am: Grades 4-6 transition to music formation

10am:
Grades K-3 transition to music formation

On the 1st Sunday of each month, there is no Godly Play; all children meet for music formation and sing an anthem during the service.

Nursery Care

The nursery is located in the Undercroft (lower level of the church).  On Sundays, the nursery is staffed from 8:45 am to the end of the 10:00 am service (September -May) and 9:45 am through the end of the 10:00 am service (June – August). Children from birth to age 4 are lovingly cared for so that parents may attend church programs and services.

If you have questions, contact Tracy Johnson, nursery coordinator, at nursery@stjohnsstpaul.org.
