Children's Ministry

VBS 2017

Children's ministry at St. John's is dedicated to "knowing Christ and making him known." Our Sunday School ministry is dedicated to providing our children with a solid Biblical foundation for knowing who God is and how He loves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We currently use Group's Faithweaver NOW curriculum, which follows the liturgical calendar so our families can build faith together by continuing the lessons at home. It is our goal to equip our families with the tools they need to instill faith in Jesus to their children.

Children's Chapel is another weekly time of teaching for our younger children. During the 11 a.m. service (10 a.m. service during the summer), our children are invited to move into the Children's Chapel for a lesson aimed at engaging them in the story. For this we use the Godly Play curriculum, which engages the children by observing the Biblical stories through narrative language and multisensory teaching. We have found that even our youngest children are able to grasp Biblical truth through this venue.

We are also beginning to offer opportunities for our older children to find fellowship together through events and activities aimed at building a community. Through these fellowship opportunities, we hope that the children of St. John's and the greater Florence community will feel valued and welcomed as part of our church family. Please return to our website or our Facebook page for updates on these fellowship and ministry opportunities for your children.

Each of these ministries is backed up by volunteer leadership. Working with children and seeing them engaging in Biblical truth is absolutely one of the most rewarding things in the life of the Church. If you would like to join our ministry team, please contact the church office (843-662-5585). We are always looking for good leadership with our children.

Nursery care is provided for all children under the age of three during all services and Sunday School.

Seeking Children's Chapel Volunteers
Children's Chapel at St. John's is a time for our youngest members (3K-3rd grade) to be spiritually fed and worship together during the Sunday service time. Children are invited to follow the cross out of the primary worship service. They gather with their leaders in our downstairs classroom and hear a Bible story, participate in a discussion and an activity.
 
We will be using the Jesus Storybook curriculum. This tool provides leaders with a Bible story to read, discussion questions and activities to get the kids thinking about what they have heard.

Thank you for your support of and commitment to this ministry. Our youngest members are our greatest investment.
