Welcome Back!

◊Sunday School is back!◊

This Sunday, September 19th, 2021, Sunday school is returning to St. John’s. Classes will run from 10am to 11am. All children between age 3 and grade 12 are invited to attend.  We also have a nursery for infants and children under age 3.

Please make sure to review the attachments below about our plan for the Health and Safety of the children. Covid waivers need to be signed and turned in on the first day back! Thank you for your cooperation.

COVID Waiver

Classes consist of a lesson of the Lord, crafts, and songs.  Fourth grade students receive their first Holy Communion with a five week course during Lent.  Students in seventh and eighth grades receive confirmation classes on Tuesday evenings.

The St. John’s Lutheran Church Sunday school program is full of many exciting activities.  I am always looking for new faces to join us—either as students or volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Harry Betz at

God bless,
