With nearly 60 students and children under the age of 19 at St. John’s, we believe that God has given us a special responsibility to partner with our parents in the development of their children’s minds, bodies and souls for ministry in the world. We create discipleship opportunities through Operation Serve, Sunday School, and mission trips both at home and abroad.
Operation Serve (OS) is our ecumenical youth development organization. Through OS, we engage students from all over the city in rigorous and meaningful community service projects.
Sunday School is where hearts are formed. It’s an intentional, smaller environment where students can learn, listen, ask questions, and be challenged. It’s a place of instruction and coaching, with topics designed to stimulate conversation and to deepen one’s exploration of him/herself, God, and the Word.
St. John’s is a “sending” church, having organized youth mission trips to rural Tennessee, Arkansas, inner-city Chicago, and Guatemala.
