Sunday School Students
Teaching children about the love of God in Jesus Christ and training them in the ways of living according to God’s word is a primary responsibility of parents. St. John’s stands ready to help by offering a year-round Sunday School program. All children 3-years-old through 8th grade are invited to participate–they do not even have to be church members. Each Sunday the students gather for an opening devotion and time of singing, then go to their classes to learn about God their Creator and Savior. Throughout the year the children sing in worship services and, of course, they have a special Christmas service, too.
Parents may simply bring their kids to any Sunday School session to register or call the church office ahead of time.
Sunday School classes classes meet from 9:15 to 10:15am.
We are very grateful to the Lord for the following members who are serving the Lord and his children in our Sunday School this year:
- Preschool 3-4 year olds Cara and Kyle Rentz
- Preschool/Kindergarten Lisa Moham with assistance from Kelsey Frank, Amanda Meyer, Gretchen Eickhoff and Ginesa Klocke
- 1st Grade Emily and David Fritsch
- 2nd/3rd Grade Various Substitutes
- 4th/5th/6th Grades Pat Dahl
- 7th/8th Grades Vince Meyer
- Music/Devotions Suzette Rowen
- LCEF Stamps Stan and Kathy Tordsen
- Superintendent Jennifer Reed
- Substitutes Grace Offord, Ev Giordano, Tony Giordano, Amy Myhrvold, Rose Buns, Darwin Kuhlman, Dave Smidt and Becky Fredricksen
Note: For the 2nd/3rd Grade class we were not able to get a primary teacher or team. However, we have a good number of members who agreed to help as substitutes to be able to cover that class and other substitute needs. While not ideal, we can make this work. If you would like to add your name to the substitute list please let us know. We pray the good Lord to bless students and staff that this be a very good year of growth.
High School Students
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:14-17
Among Satan’s temptations to High School students is the one that says they do not need to continue learning about God after they are confirmed. Some think they have “graduated” from learning God’s word.
In fact, the High School years are some of the very most important years for young people to be in God’s truth. Life is changing so fast, individually and for the society, that the solid foundation of God’s word is critical for life–daily and eternal.
All high school students are encouraged to continue studying God’s Word and its application to life by joining our Director of Christian Education, Dave Erickson, as he teaches the Sunday Morning Youth Bible study at 9:15am in the youth room. Students will be challenged and enlightened. Questions will be answered and students will be prepared to meet the challenges and joys of adult life.
