Sunday Mornings – Children, Youth and Adult Studies
On any given Sunday at St. John’s there are more than 100 children and adults gathering together to pray, study the Bible, share their faith stories with each other, and encourage one another in building up their gifts for Christian ministry. It happens during our education hour (9:25a-10:25a)and is an extension of our corporate worship together.
New Member Class
Our new comers class introduces people from various backgrounds in their faith journey to the basic teachings of our common Christian faith, to some of the distinctive teachings of Lutherans, and to the mission and ministry of St. John’s. Lunch and child care are provided. Call ext. 210 to enroll in the next class.
Our next class is on Sunday, April 8 following the 10:45 am worship service.
Every Sunday morning we offer Biblr classes for adult study and conversation around the word of God during our educational hour (9:25 to 10:25), where there are opportunities for the whole family to gather in groups for study, prayer and encouragement. Each is structured so that newcomers/visitors may join or try them out at any time in the cycle of the class curriculum.
We arrange our classes in a variety of settings and disciplines of study to help offer variety and connect with personal needs. There are four basic approaches to Christian studies (Biblical, Topical, Historical, Missional). While they all intersect around the living and active connections with the word of God, each discipline helps prepare us for living our faith in different ways.
