  GODLY PLAY and CONNECT SUNDAY SCHOOL                                                                                 


The St. John’s Sunday School Program is divided into two different age groups, one for pre-k through third grade, and the other for fourth grade on up.

Godly Play is spoken here! For PreK –grade 3

The goal of Godly Play is to teach children, through storytelling, using the art of religious language to enable them to know God first-hand rather than just knowing about God. The stories are told in beautiful rich language with the help of simple organic materials. There is a desert box used to tell stories from the Old Testament and golden boxes used to tell the parables. All of the materials are durable and on the shelves for the children to take down and play with at any time! Godly Play is offered every Sunday through the school year.

Sparkhouse “Connect”- grades 4 and up

Every Connect lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore and Make. Kids focus and reinforce a theme by watching a video, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that range from games to art and more. For more information go to

**This class is taught every other week during the school year.

Summer Sundays happen in June, July and August. Parishioners are encouraged to do something casual and fun with the children.
