ST. JOHN’S OFFERS CHILD CARE DURING 10am WORSHIP SERVICES. Families are welcome to come worship together at the beginning of the service. An aide from the nursery staff waits at the front of the church to escort children (and parents who wish to visit the child care room) immediately after the children’s message.
