The Grove Children’s Ministry offers a Sunday night children’s program in conjunction with Foundation Youth Ministries Sunday night program.
Children grades 4K- 5th grades are welcome to join the children’s program from 6- 7:30 p.m. Children will meet upstairs in room 217.
This year they are learning about the Great Commission. We have had visits from area missions and the kids are learning what they and their families can do to help those in our community and throughout the world.
Quilting is the process of sewing of two or more layers of fabric together to make a thicker padded material, usually to create a quilt. Sounds pretty basic doesn’t it? However, quilts can be not only functional but also beautiful! Just ask the members of St. John’s Piece-Full Quilters.
This group meets each Wednesday morning beginning at 9. They create works of art for local missions, new babies and to be sold at the annual St. John’s Apple Fest.
Things you should know about the Piece-Full Quilters:
– You don’t have to be a member of St. John’s.
– You don’t have to be 55 or older.
– Your quilting skill can be anywhere on the scale, from “always wanted to quilt, but never tried” to “my quilts have been in quilt shows several times”?.
– You have to be willing to have FUN!
– Any and Every One is invited to join or just come by and check out the group.
– You may call Connie Mock (803) 439-2360 for more information.
And always remember: When life hands you scraps, make quilts!!
There are two children’s choirs at St. John’s. The Joy Choir is for children ages K3-1st grade. Under the direction of Elizabeth Barfoot, our smallest choristers enjoy their first experience of making music together with friends as they prepare and offer their very best to God.
Rehearsals are on Wednesdays in room 119 from 4:15 to 5:00 during the school year.
The Alleluia Choir is for children 2nd to 6th grade. Under the direction of Catherine Stapleton Nance, this choir focuses on good vocal tone, ear training, pitch awareness, self-assurance and self-discipline. The choir works hard to present our very best offerings for the worship services in which we sing. We dabble in drama from time to time. We play musical games help teach cooperation. We venture into another language on occasion.
Mostly, we have fun and praise the Lord in all we do.
Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 4:15 to 5:15 in room 214.
A small group for guys. There is a lesson followed by games.
Early Bird: $80.00 and ends on Dec. 16th
After Dec. 16th cost will be $90.00.
For our kids who attend big church, in any service, we offer special bulletins and worship bags just for them!
They are full of activities to do during the service and even have scripture lessons that coincide with the sermon! They are sure to keep even the worst case of wiggles at bay!
The yellow ones are for children ages 3-6, and the green ones are for children 7-12.
Worship bags are located in the hooks in the Narthex and in the lobby of The Faith Center.
