"Kids of the Kingdom"  [Elementary K - 4]

 Kids of the Kingdom is SJPC’s children’s program during worship services.  After the anthem, elementary aged kids head to class to pray, worship and learn together.  We provide Christ centered teaching in a way that help kids build foundations of faith as they begin to understand “the Big God Story” and how they are a part of much larger community of faith of past, present and future believers. Please join us for this fun, creative, God-centered class! This Fall we will be focusing on prayer, and specifically the Lord's Prayer. 

"The Mix"  [5th - 12th grade] 

The Mix (our youth) is designed for children grades five through high school.  This fall will be a year of transition and we will be focusing on finding ways to mentor to our youth and integrating them more into the life of the church.  Mix Sunday School classes and Youth activities will start on October 9th!  

* High school aged youth are encouraged to worship with their families in the service, however, the Mix will tailor the Sunday School Lesson for all those who choose to be involved.
