Our Church School mission:

 Our mission is to help our youngest family members build a firm faith foundation by learning:

·         What it means to have faith

·          what it is we are putting our faith in, and

·         how to rely on our faith to help ourselves and others

St. John’s is committed to creating an environment where children are welcome and accepted so that they can grow.  We offer a safe space for questions and exploration.  *St. John's Safe Church Policy in place
