John Knox Vacation Bible School
June 9-12, 2024
Each child who comes through our doors comes to us as a child of God to be nurtured, encouraged, and loved. We promise to love each child and to guide him or her as they grow within our faith community.

Our Nursery Staff welcomes children ages birth to 3 years of age each week during the Sunday School hour (9:00-9:45 AM) as well as during worship service (10:00 AM). The nursery rooms are located on the PDO/Nursery Hall adjacent to the Kindergarten Hall.

Children’s Church
All children are welcome in our worship services. Each week, during worship, a special “Time for Children” talk will be presented for children of all ages. After the “Time for Children”, we will dismiss children ages K5 and younger to go to Children’s Church for Bible stories and activity time. Children’s Church is located on the PDO/Nursery Hall. Parents can pick up their children there after worship.

Preschool Sunday School (K3 -K5)
Our Preschool Sunday School classes give our young children a chance to grow in their faith with caring teachers who guide them through Bible stories, lively discussions, and hands-on activities. Preschool Sunday School classrooms are located on the lower-level Kindergarten Hall.

Elementary Sunday School (Grades 1 – 5)
Our Elementary Sunday School classes present Bible lessons that actively engage the children in God’s story using interactive games, reflective wondering, dramatic storytelling and a whole lot of fun.  The children are encouraged to share what they have learned with their families and to apply their lessons to their own lives. Elementary Sunday School classrooms are located on the hallway under the Sanctuary.

Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is held each summer, and serves as a fun, faith-filled week of learning and growing. Vacation Bible School follows a selected theme that offers children an exciting week spent immersed in Bible stories brought alive through singing, dancing, creating crafts, playing games, and serving others. Vacation Bible School is held for any children who have completed K4 through 5th grade. Our 4th and 5th graders also participate in off-campus mini-mission projects during the week.  Dates for 2022: June 26-29 from 5:00-7:30 PM.

In addition to our weekly services and activities, we offer a variety of opportunities for our children and their families to gather together with their church friends: Family Park Days, Parents’ Night Out events, musical performances, holiday celebrations, Family Mission Night, and Summer Movie Day, just to name a few! Check out our Children’s Ministry Calendar right here on the John Knox app for this year’s scheduled events. Families can also stay connected through our Children’s Ministry Newsletter. Email Susan Felton if you’d like to be added to that list!
