These beautiful voices fill up the sanctuary once a month as children (2nd grade through 8th Grade) sing their hearts out and also learn how to sing harmony and solos. Children's choir practices once a week, usually after church on Sunday morning. Click the photo below to hear St. John's Children's Choir sing.
Every Sunday morning at 9:00 children of all ages (3 & up) are provided a chance to learn about Jesus, the Savior of the world, and make friends and have fun. Breakfast is served in the gym and parents can attend an awesome bible study hosted by our energetic pastor.
In the Lutheran Church, Confirmation is a foundational experience in a young person's faith life. It is a time to learn, in depth, the doctrine and faith of the church and to grow in one's understanding of what it means to be a part of the church and her mission. Here at St. John it's also a time to have fun with pastor and make friends. Confirmation is twice a month on Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:30. Pastor plays some fun games with the youth and then dinner is served along with a lesson. The class covers the Ten Commandments, The Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, Confession & Absolution, Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. For 6th - 8th grade. Students receive their first communion after confirmation.

At St. John there are always fun things for young children to do to grow in faith, learn about service, and have tons of fun. Most of our children's ministry is in the form of special events like VBS, Slime Fest, and sometimes just going to the creek and catching crawdads. That's the fun of being a small-town church in a rural area!
