Children in Worship

Children are welcomed and loved at St. John’s, and can attend any of our worship services.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these…. whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”

~ Matthew 19:13, 18:5

Kids' Kits

To help families attend our worship services, we offer Kids’ Kits that children between the ages of 2 and 11 years can use as they sit through the service. These drawstring bags contain lacing cards, an Etch-a-Sketch, a lift-the-flap Bible, and books designed to help children learn about the Episcopal tradition, liturgical items, and feast days.

Ask a Welcome Team member if you would like a Kids’ Kit for your children.

Child Care

Children of all ages are welcome to attend any of our worship services. We also provide child care in our Nursery for infants and children under five during the 10:00 am service.

We take the care and keeping of little ones seriously and require our child-minders to be vaccinated against COVID-19, pass a background check, and complete the Episcopal Church’s Safeguarding God’s Children child protection training.
