1st Corinthians with Father Andy
So you want a class that is heavy on the Bible AND is relevant to your personal life? Meet 1st Corinthians. In this study that will extend until Lent, Father Andy will go through the entire book section by section as Paul addresses issues such as pride, discipline, Christian service, marriage, resurrection, and more.

Early Christianity with Fr. Thorpe and Mike Lewis
In what setting did the early church arise and how did it handle a world of conflict and competing religions? Covering everything from our Jewish roots through the first councils of the church, come discover the historic foundations of our faith and worship. Mike Lewis has set up this website with introductory material and a class outline.

Offered on occasion: Membership 1-2-3
Membership 1-2-3 provides newcomers with an overview of life, focused on worship, discipleship, and mission, at St. John’s. It is designed for those coming from Anglican/Episcopalian churches and wish to transfer their membership, as well as those from other traditions (or no tradition) who want to explore membership at St. John’s. For information about the next Membership 1-2-3, please contact Fr. Andy Johnson.
Children and Youth meet in the classrooms of the Undercroft (the basement of the church) from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.
It’s never too early to teach children about God. We believe that Christian faith is essential to early childhood development. Frolic is the first curriculum of its kind to connect developmental and spiritual milestones for the youngest of children—starting at birth.
Pre-K and Kindergarten age children are gently transitioned into a more structured Sunday school class with stories and crafts, preparing them for more in-depth lessons as they get older.
Designed for children grades 1 to 3, Holy Moly focuses on individual Bible stories. Each lesson has four components. During Discover, kids watch an animated Bible story video. In Relate, they talk about the story they just watched. Then, in Connect, kids engage with the story again in their Bible to understand the story. Finally, they complete the Create activity with their leaflets.
Connect begins in fourth grade where kids/preteens transition from individual Bible stories to a framework explaining how the individual stories fit into larger biblical themes.
