Kingdom Kids

(Birth - 5th Grade)

Kingdom Kids is our children’s ministry at St. John’s. Kingdom Kids is relational, formative, and fun!

kingdom-kids

Our goal is to create a greater impact in the lives and faith journeys of our children by intentionally reiterating lessons learned at home in church and vice versa.

Nursery, Children's Sunday School, and Wednesday Night meetings are currently not offered, but our Kingdom Kids are finding creative ways to stay connected.

Stacey Shafer, Children’s Minister would love to answer any questions you have.

First Look is for our Birth to 4 year olds. We want our youngest Kingdom Kids to take a First Look at who God is and understand these three basic truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Parents, look for “First Look” to identify materials specific to this age group.

All parents with children, birth to school age, are encouraged to download the Parent Cue App. In addition to following along with the church curriculum, this app is designed to help every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.

“SUPPOSE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH SOMETHING VERY LITTLE. THEN YUOU CAN ALSO BE TRUSTED WITH SOMETHING VERY LARGE.” Luke 16:10A, NIRV

In January our 252 Kids (K-5th graders) will learn that to live with responsibility, you’ve got to play well and finish strong. That’s how you show you can be trusted with what is expected of you.

252 Kids is for our kids from Kindergarten to 5th Grade. What does 252 represent? It’s not our street address or the number of questions a 2nd-grader can ask in 20 minutes. Instead, everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of the three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

All parents with children, birth to school age, are encouraged to download the Parent Cue App. In addition to following along with the church curriculum, this app is designed to help every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.

“EVERYONE WHO HEARD HIM WAS AMAZED. Luke 2:47, NIV

In January in First Look, we will answer the question: Who is amazing? Jesus is amazing. Jesus is out of this world!

Milestones

Milestones are moments in your child’s faith journey for them to explore a particular part of our faith, from prayer to worship to communion. Every milestone includes hands-on teaching, a parent component, and a tool/gift that will help the child carry that faith milestone into their daily life.

Camps

St. John’s offers summer camps for all kingdom kids.

Hands and Feet Camp

Hands and Feet Camp is a day camp for our rising 3rd to 5th grade kingdom kids. Each year, we partner with local organizations in our own neighborhood to serve those around us. Your kids will get to know our high school youth, who help lead this camp.

Music and Arts Camp

Music and Arts Camp is a free camp open to rising kindergarten through fifth graders in the community. Children are engaged in choir, movement, arts and crafts, playing instruments, and games. This camp is in collaboration with St. Luke’s Epicopal, First Presbyterial, First Baptist, and Sacred Heart Catholic.

Vacation Bible School

Discover more of God in the midst of the summer heat at Vacation Bible School! This growing ministry reaches out to children in our neighborhoods, schools and community to share the love of Christ with others.
