Children and youth are an important and valued part of the St. John’s Episcopal Church parish family.  We offer a variety of programming focused on learning about the Bible, sharing God’s love in our community, and growing in faith.
Children and Youth Programming During Safe Distancing

Sunday School for children and youth meetings have paused for summer. Questions? Our Nursery is closed until further notice.  Youth meetings have also paused for summer. Please contact Ayana Grady, Children’s and Youth Ministries Leader, at agrady@stjohnstampa.org with questions or to join our mailing list.

Regular Programming for Children and Youth

For our youngest members under the age of three, a fully staffed nursery is available during the 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. Sunday services (10:00 a.m. in July).

St. John’s Children’s Ministry consists of many lively, spirit-filled activities and classes for children from three years of age through 5th grade, including Sunday School, which takes place during the 9:15 a.m. service (10:00 a.m. in July). At St. John’s Sunday School, children meet in the Parish Hall for an age-appropriate, Bible-based lesson. After some fun, a craft, and a snack, the children enter the Church to join their parents for Communion. We also have a monthly Family Service in our Parish Hall. Please check our calendar for dates.

St. John’s EYC, or Episcopal Youth Community, is our youth group, and welcomes all youth  in grades 6 through 12! EYC is designed to give youth a place where they can have fun, meet life-long friends, be supported, and deepen their faith in Christ. Growing in maturity and in faith is easier and more fun when we grow together!

During the summer, St. John’s partners with Cornerstone Kids at St. James House of Prayer to present Vacation Bible School. Information is available each spring, check back for details!
