Our CYF Mission and Values
We hope this becomes mission and values for your family, also

CYF MISSION STATEMENT

Children, Youth and Family Ministries at St John’s helps students to Like, Follow, Share:

Like God’s word.

CYF work is about connecting students to God, that they might know God better. As we help students learn to worship, teach them how to read the Bible and pray, we’re modeling a life of faith and helping them identify God as the solid rock on which their life is built.

Follow Jesus.

Part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus is to be part of the Christian community. We, as the family of God, learn together, play together, serve together, and grow together. In short, we share our lives with each other in Christ.

Share the Holy Spirit.

All of us have God-given talents and abilities. As students grow older, they will discover how their greatest passions meet the world’s greatest needs. In CYF ministries, we will help students develop a heart for serving in the world as an expression of their faith. 

WHAT WE VALUE

CYF ministries at St John’s strives to create a seamless line of ministry from birth through high school and to walk alongside families to raise compassionate, respectful, and service-orientated students – students with hearts of faith-filled love.

  • Compassion for our neighbors, both close to home and far away
