Youth Ministry

      As our children grow and develop into those “tween” and older teen years, St. John offers continued opportunities for them to grow in their relationship with God and with one another.

The Middle School Youth meet at 5:30          pm each Sunday evening in room 160.          


  • The High School Youth meet at 7:00 pm each Sunday evening in room 160.                                                                                                                                         
  •       Confirmation Classes (6th grade and up) are offered each year, usually between the months of February through May.
           In addition, the youth have an opportunity to participate in mission and service projects, trips, parties, lock-ins, and                                                                                       District/Annual Conference Camps and Retreats throughout the year. 
     If you have questions please contact Kyle Smith, Director of Youth Ministries, at or 304-266-5720.
