In God's name we play!
St. John's offers a "Soft Space" during the Sunday morning services:
St. John's Children's Soft Space
In the rear of the sanctuary, near the ushers, you will now find a special space created for our marvelous (and sometimes restless) children.
It is designed to enable our kids to move around a little more than in the pews but still allow them (and their adults) to “soak-in” the prayers, songs and sermon. Even our littlest benefit from all that goes on around them, but let's face it, sometimes the “quiet” times are just a little long for them.
So, if before the sermon, or during the long prayer time, or heck, anytime you and they would benefit from a little more space, please come back to our “soft space” and relax, let them play quietly (there will be a basket of quiet things to play with), and still soak in the love that Jesus has for all of us. Come and go from your “space in the pew” to the “soft space” as needed. Do you a have a little older (school age) child that you don't want to leave in the pew alone, bring them back too! There will be chairs for the non-floor sitters and carpet for the kids.
No one is excluded, no one “has to go”, all are welcome with their adult(s) to come to this kid friendly spot.
We only ask that you are respectful of the toys provided and clean up after you are done.
