For Youth (6th -12th Grade) at St. John's...and we even look after our College Age Youth with a College Connections Program
St. John's Journey to Adulthood Program is a national ministry program of spiritual formation for young people. It balances Bible study, prayer, and serious and playful activities to nurture the whole person during the passage from childhood to adulthood. Faith is not learned “about,” but experienced through the worshiping, learning, and serving practices of a community. Through this process we use Bible study, prayer, rites of passage, outreach ministries and both serious and playful activities to live and teach life lessons with an eye towards the young people growing into the responsibilities and ownership of an adult life of mature faith/faithfulness.
There are three two-year segments of the program: Rite-13, J2A, and YAC. Breakfast Club and SWAAG are two groups that have been incorporated into St. John’s program to serve the needs of 6th graders and 12th graders during alternate years. Fall 2020 begins a new 2-year cycle. Click on the accordion below to learn more about each program. Registration for each program is on the right hand side of this page.
