Welcome to Kidz4Christ, the Children’s Ministry at St. John's reaching out to kids — infants through 4th grade. What makes us unique? We want to partner with families to bring children into relationship with Christ. We teach children not only to understand biblical truths, but how to live them out in their everyday lives. We promise to be Bible-based, child-centered, relational, relevant, creative, and of course…fun!
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 exception 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 29, 2020.
You do not have to be a a member of St. John's to attend, tell your friends!
Christmas Musical Practice will be during Club time.
Please be sure to pick up a CD.
