At St. John’s we offer Sunday School for our youth between our 8:30 and 10:30 services. The caring teachers in our Sunday School help the young people of our church know that God loves and cares for them by helping them understand how God’s love is revealed in the stories of the Bible Our Sunday School is led by our Superintendent, Gloria Koehler, and this year we have four Sunday School classes: Our Nursery class for pre-kindergarteners and kindergarteners, taught by Ginny Heller; a class for first and second graders, taught by Jennifer Chimonik; a class for third and fourth graders, taught by Ann Vresk; and a fifth and sixth grade class taught by Tammy Pammer. Our Sunday School classes for the Gospel Light curriculum.
Confirmation is the two-year process by which young people prepare for full membership in the church. It involves learning about God, about Christ, about the church and its ministries, and about themselves. Confirmation is open to young people who are interested in becoming members of the church and will be entering the seventh grade in the fall of the year they enter the program. If you’re interested in learning more about confirmation at St. John’s contact Pastor Mollica.
St. John’s is proud to sponsor Cub Scout Pack 317, which provides a wealth of educational, civic, service, and personal development opportunities (and the chance for lots of fun) for boys from first through fifth grade.
