Note: We're in the middle of creating a new webpage for Family Ministries so please make sure you check out the new page by clicking here or on Family Ministries in the menu above.
The Family Ministries Facebook will be the main place for our church families to be together while we are physically distant from each other, so please like the page, show it to the kids, and comment on things (I want to know you are there AND people don't only want to hear from me).
I will also add links and add new information to this section of the website,
Come On & Zoom (Sunday Ministry with Children)
zoom to kidspace! (belonging and friendship for grades 3-6)
YOUTH virtual gatherings (youth in high school)
Our Ministry Together continues! We are resilient! We are creative!
I will try to keep it fun and engaging, honest and thougtful.
If you have ideas about staying connected please ley me know.
Holding all our young ones in prayer!
For more information, please contact Ruth MacIntosh, our Family Ministries Coordinator.
What makes a family???
(a little bit about who we are, and what we usually do)
At St. John’s we know that families come in all shapes and sizes. There are families we are born into, families that we choose, and families that choose us!
All families are invited and all families are welcome!
Attention to ages and stages ...
At St. John’s we try to pay attention to the unique needs of people at different ages and stages. This means gathering activities for children, early adolescents and older teens. It means opportunities for young ones, adults, and elders to know each other. This means realizing that some need to wiggle in their pew and some need an arm to lean on at coffee time.
Paying attention to each age and stage means noticing and making space for everyone’s gifts to shine in this place!
Growing a community of faith TOGETHER …
At St. John’s we know that our community is richer because of its diversity! We can be energized by the vision and activity of our youth, and we can know and listen to the wisdom of our elders.
We are intentional about multi-age and intergenerational connections!
