This vital ministry continues the tradition of instructing our children in the fundamental dogmas of faith, doctrine, tradition, and scripture as we try to bring each child into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. The focus is on prayer, learning, faith sharing, integration into daily life, and outreach.
St. John’s offers a traditional classroom instruction program, a Family Cluster model, an At-Home Lessons Program, and the online Project Nazareth: Faith Begins at Home program.
