St. John's is now open for in-person worship each Sunday and we would love to see you and your children in church again. At this time, for everyone's continued safety, we are not offering Sunday School or in-person children's programs and children will stay with their family during worship.  Online offerings include Youth Group Zoom Meetings weekly on Tuesday evenings:  Juniors 6:30-7:30 and Seniors 8:00-9:00. For more information please contact Donna Ellis.
