St. John Youth Ministry
~Let Your Light Shine~
Welcome to our page!
Youth are important to our church and to the Body of Christ as a whole. They are the next leaders of the world, and we are here to encourage, motivate, listen to, and build them up in a strong relationship with Christ as they go out and experience what life has to offer.
This program is for students in 6th through 12th grade. 
What is our Mission? 
St. John Youth Mission:
Let your light shine as you walk like Christ: Knowing, Sharing, and Growing in His Love. 
St. John Youth Vision:
To equip today’s youth to become leaders of the faith by living Godly lives and sharing Christ’s love in the world through fellowship, Bible study, and service. 
Youth Activities: 
Jr./Sr. High Youth Group Nights – Our youth group runs every Sunday night from 6:30-8:00pm here at the church. These nights consist of icebreakers, Bible talks, and fun games and activities! Open to both Jr. and Sr. High students. *We do not meet on holiday weekends 
Fundraisers: St. John youth participate in various fundraisers throughout the year. The funds we raise benefit our youth group by allowing us to do fun activities together and participate in spiritual events that help us grow in our faith. We are always thankful for everyone’s support and generosity!
