Children’s Programs

John Street Church strives to be a community that faithfully responds to Jesus who said, “Let the little children come to me.”  We consider traffic jams of strollers at our front door and impromptu musical concerts by our children to be blessings from God.      

As a United Methodist Church, we believe that Jesus invites little children to come to him through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.  Because baptism is the initiation rite through which an individual enters the Christian community, we normally celebrate baptism during the Sunday morning worship service.  To discuss the baptism of your child, please contact Pastor Jason.


God’s children of all ages are always welcome at John Street Church’s Sunday morning worship service.  For parents and young children who want a Christian experience designed with age appropriate needs and desires in mind, however, we happily support the following ministries in our congregation.     
Children’s Church (18 months—5 years)

Children’s Church meets during the Sunday morning worship service.  Our Children’s Church teachers and assistants lovingly care for the children in an environment that nurtures their young faith through stories, crafts, music, and games. 

Sunday School (1—5 grades & 6—8 grades)

Sunday School also meets during the Sunday morning worship service.  Sunday School teachers follow a curriculum designed to help elementary and middle school children grow in faith at their own pace with activities designed for their developmental abilities.
