Welcome to St. John's

For Our Visitors

Are you looking for a church? Please join us! Our ministry programs serve all ages from newborn to senior adults.  From Sunday School each Sunday morning to Word of Life on Wednesday evenings, our children enjoy a full field of opportunities. In addition to Sunday morning Bible Studies, our youth are engaged in various types of activities from small group studies on Wednesday nights and mission trips to M-Fuge, to fun fellowship activities.    St. John’s also has a strong adult ministry program.  Our 11:00am service is a blended worship with traditional choir and worship team leading the congregation in hymns, anthems, as well as praise and worship music.

We are dedicated to ensuring that your children have a safe, fun, and meaningful experience when they come with you to worship.  To that end, we provide free childcare ministry staffed with competent, enthusiastic, loving, and screened workers from infant to Kindergarten. Older children may worship with their family for the entire service, or may be dismissed to Children’s Church prior to the sermon.

We hope you’ll join us for our Sunday School Bible studies at 9:30am, and then for our 11:00am worship service to see what we’re all about.  Through diverse music and practical messages, the truths of the Bible are presented in a format that are easy to understand and practical to apply even if you’ve never been to church

We hope the information on this page will be helpful as you plan your visit. A full list of our services is available on the “About” page. For more information about St. John’s or to have someone contact you, click here.

EVERYTHING FOR GOD’S KINGDOM

A Note from Pastor Charlie

parenthood

If you have children, how much training did you receive to be a parent?  To be an electrician you are required to have 144 hours of classroom instruction and 2,000 hours of work as an apprentice. A pediatrician must excel in undergraduate school; then train for 8 more years. You have to pass an eye test, a written exam and a driving test obtain a driver’s license. To be a parent all you have to do is have a child. Nearly half of all parents report raising children is harder than they thought it would be.

Here’s good news for everyone who wants to be successful parents with equally successful children.  The Search Institute has identified 40 assets children need to be successful. Raising Highly Capable Kids is an interactive curriculum which introduces each of these assets. Research shows if a child has 3 – 8 assets they will be behavioral problems, struggle academically, fail morally and land on the wrong side of the law.  Children with 32 – 38 assets are well behaved, reach their academic potential, are morally stable, attend college and become leaders.  Do I have your attention?

Raising Highly Capable Kids will be offered at St. John’s Baptist Church on Sunday mornings from  9:30 – 10:30 AM in room 202 beginning September 24th. There is a cost of $12 for your personal workbook.

This time of learning will be fun, informative and rewarding. We will review all of the assets and give you a chance to see which assets your children have and which you wish to add to their character arsenal. To participate simply show up for our first session. However, it will be a great help if we know of your intent to participate with us. If you are just not sure, come to the first meeting on a trial basis at no cost. If you have any questions please contact Pastor Charlie at 757-427-5309 or by email at stjbcpastor@gmail.com
