St. John’s offers many opportunities for adults to be involved in Bible study. Every Sunday morning, three different adult classes are led during Sunday School hour. On Tuesday mornings at 10:00am there is a Bible study for senior adult women in the music room. Tuesday nights at 7:00pm, there is an adult Bible study class for those who are seeking to dig deeper into scripture. And Thursday mornings at 10:00 am a Bible study for women is held in the music room.
On Sunday mornings, Sunday school classes are offered for children ages 2 through 18. Each class is taught by passionate leaders who love working with children and teaching the Good News for the children to take home and share with their parents. Whether learning about Joseph’s forgiveness for his siblings or talking about what it means to be a true friend, students will be growing in their faith and relationship with God while having fun in a loving environment.
