We love children!
Meet Children's Minister ... Kadie Cleveland!
Hey, St. John's! Here is some information about me! I am originally from Mobile, Alabama and attended Concordia University Texas where I got my degree in Christian Education. I have served in ministry as a called worker for about four years now and have worked with kids and churches for more than six years. I love the outdoors like going for hikes and to the beach. I have a passion for sharing the love of Christ with kids and helping parents to be the primary teachers of the faith to their children. Bring your kids to Children's Church so I can start to get to know faces and names. I look forward to this amazing year of ministry!
Children's Ministry here at St. John's wants to be more intentional with the way we do ministry! Our three main focuses are Milestones for kids, Parent events for familys, and Quality volunteer training for small group leaders. Our mission statement for children's ministry is : We will connect, neighbor, serve by equipping kids, parents and volunteers to know God and to know what He made them to do. So then you might wonder what did He make me to do? Well that's simple! Kids, He made you to be loved and to love others! Parents, He made you to be Loved and to love your kids so that they may see God's love through you! And Volunteers, God made you to be loved and to love your students and their parents so that they know that they are not alone! Team with us as we learn about God's love through Jesus Christ!

At St. John’s we encourage every member to Connect with God, Love their Neighbor and Serve our City. Children’s Church is designed to help our children Connect with God by being active participants in worship. Children’s Church mirrors worship in the Worship center with music and activities that are tailored for children. Children’s church starts with opening worship before the kids divide into small groups. With their small groups, they will be able to dig deeper into the lesson and activities.
The small group breakdowns are:
3 - 5 years
Kindergarten - 1st grade
2nd - 4th grade
Children’s Church runs the full length of our 8:00 am and 9:45 am services. Feel free to drop off or pick up your child at any point before, during or after the worship service. There will be a volunteer at the KidCheck stations to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
Children's Ministry is using Orange curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year. This curriculum provides great tools for the church to partner with parents and encourage discussion throughout the week at home.
