The second floor of St. John's United Church is specifically designed for Christian Education. Classes are held on the first Sunday of the month during the regular worship service.    

Children ages 5yrs to 12yrs attend three different class categories: Beginner, Junior & Primary. Each class is instructed by a volunteer from the congregation.  Our nursery is also available during worship service for the children under 5 years of age.  

 Our Sunday School program runs from September until June.  During this time, we follow the Sparks lectionary curriculum.  It is used for the beginner, junior and primary groups in our Sunday School program.

The lessons each week follow the Christian church calendar that the congregation hears at worship time.  This curriculum includes activities that help the children learn about faith in several different ways.  Sparks is designated to accomodate all of the many ways kids learn. Whether it's through crafts, writing, reading or a game, they are engaging in scripture.

Music is another way that we engage youth in scripture. We encourage their many musical talents by giving them opportunities to perform in worship and also by starting a children's choir.

A youth lead service is in place as well. Once a month, the children read the scripture readings, assist in communion duties or perform in a dramatic presentation.

Much effort has been made to involve our youth in church worship. And also, to implement a Sunday School program that develops faith and spirituality. 

 We at St. John's United are aware of the importance of educationing youth outside of our Sunday School Program. We encourage our youth to attend rallies and camps.  We also have hosted performers such as Linnea Good to perform at our church.

Children are encouraged to participate in Sunday worship through pagents, dramas, prayer, scripture reading, music and missionary fund-raising.  To wind-up the year, in June we tradionally host a camping/picnic week-end at our Church campsite at Moose Lake.

St. John's is very proud of its enthusiatic Christian Education program. We strive to welcome families into our church and share with thier children a new and exciting way to explore God's Holy Word.
