CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Our children and youth are a gift to St. John! Helping them discover their faith and grow in their relationship with God is a vital ministry. Check out some of the many ways we seek to support our children and youth.

Mars Area Youth Group

Youth Group is for youth in grades 6-12. Meetings are about twice a month on Sunday afternoons. Meetings include a variety of activities, including faith discussions, games, service activities, and more! 

Youth Group is a Christian-based group, but children who do not regularly attend church will find a home here too. 

Youth Group is hosted jointly by St. John and Mars United Presbyterian Church. Youth do not have to be a member of either hosting church to join.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, St. John pairs up with Mars United Presbyterian Church to host a community Vacation Bible School. The program usually runs in the evening during a week in late June/early July. Stay tuned for next year's dates! Vacation Bible School is packed full of Bible-learning, games, crafts, science experiments, and lots of new and old friends! Our 2022 theme was God's MONUMENTAL Love.
