Youth Ministry: Journey to Adulthood
Youth Ministry at St. John’s follows the Journey to Adulthood program, which is a complete youth ministry program of spiritual formation for 6th-12th grades. Please see below for the three segments that are included in this program.
If you are interested in getting your child involved in Journey to Adulthood, please contact Jean Hansen at 952-201-0424 or email@example.com.
The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.

Godly Play is an experience of adults and children dwelling together in the mystery of God. It is profoundly biblical and sacramental and at the same time is deeply respectful of the nature of young children who are able to make their way to God in freedom and joy. Godly Play aims to make religion come alive for children, to assist their spiritual development, to help Christianity become part of daily life and to make the language of religion familiar.
