Wednesday Night Classes
Cost $25 per child (payment plans & scholarships available)
St. John's Kidz4Christ loves our Wednesday nights!
We use this time together to follow Jesus by life skills development, Bible study, Scripture memory, and relational discipleship.
The children earn awards for learning their curriculum, memorizing scripture and setting examples on how to follow Christ in every aspect of life.
We meet on Wednesday Nights from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. and will include:
We ask that by signing up your child, that you understand that we ask our parents to volunteer for 4 hours throughout the year. This could be as easy as staying 2 Wednesday nights to help out our team, assisting in a Sunday School class or volunteering for a special event.
We do break between Thanksgiving and New Years with the execption of any Christmas Musical/Service rehearsals. Times to be announced.
We also do not meet the week of Sarasota County Schools Spring Break.
We end the year with a family dinner and awards banquet on April 25, 2018.
You do not have to be a a member of St. John's to attend, tell your friends!
Would you like to SERVE and be a blessing to our children?
