Christian Formation

Sunday Mornings for Adults

Equipping the Saints is our lecture and discussion class that meets in the Multipurpose Room on the lower level of Heyward Hall. Led by the clergy and others, the class is a series of series, including Bible studies and thematic explorations of the Christian life and discipleship.

The Wired Word meets in the Parlor on the first floor of Heyward Hall. Discussion-oriented, this class works off lessons emailed to participants in advance, that provoke reflection on Scripture, current events, and our common life. Email Sandy Leach ( to be subscribed to the emails.

The Monthly Early Adult Class meets once a month, usually on the first Sunday, at 9 AM in the Dining Room of the Barr Center. It is a great choice for 8 AM worshipers. Davis Bourne leads the class and provides a delicious breakfast.

Sundays for Family Ministries

Nursery is offered at St. John’s for children ages 3 and younger. The children of St. John’s enjoy stories and playtime in a safe and loving environment from 9:20 until the end of the later worship service.

Children’s Chapel at St. John’s is a beloved tradition of storytelling, prayer, and song. Before the Gospel at the 10:30 worship service, children ages 7 and under are invited to join an adult at the back of the church to walk to the Children’s Chapel and enjoy a child-focused worship time. We’ll read from Psalm 23, sing This Little Light of Mine, say our prayers, and more, before returning to the church for the Peace.

Pre-K-Elementary Sunday School: Children from pre-K to 5th grade will have age appropriate, engaging Sunday School lessons brought to them by our fun and fabulous St. John’s teachers. From Little Lambs to Holy Moly!, join us Sunday mornings for songs, crafts, videos, and more.

Middle School Sunday School dives into the Bible at 9:30a.m. upstairs. Join that class for donuts and conversation as you dig a little deeper into the story of our faith.

High School Bible Study is offered as announced.

Episcopal Youth Community, or EYC, is our group of youth in 6th-12th grades. We meet regularly on Sunday evenings for fellowship, games, and conversations about our faith. We also have special events like trips and service opportunities throughout the school year. One favorite tradition of St. John’s is Bojangle’s breakfast on Tuesday mornings! Youth are also encouraged to be a part of diocesan youth retreats, free to St. John’s youth through the Jack Fleischer Memorial Fund. Make sure you’re on the email list and in the GroupMe and Facebook group to stay in-the-know!
