St. John’s has an intentional program of Christian education, which advances in stages. It’s modelled on the learning-by-doing character of apprenticeship. The goal is mature, well-rooted followers of Jesus who know him in worship and word and make him known in their daily walk through the world.
Stage 1 Regular church attendance
Stage 2 SJYM Orientation
A Saturday morning meeting for newcomers and those wanting a fresh start. Learn about one another, our leaders and life at our church.
Stage 3 Rooted in Christ
Clergy and lay leaders outline and discuss the basic tenets of the faith. For both new and curious Christians.
The next six-week Inquiry Course starts Wednesday, September 25. Register now!
Stage 4 Growing in Christ
Members clarify their understanding and strengthen their spirits with the guidance of clergy and lay leadership.
Options vary with year and season and may include:
- The Apprenticeship Series by James Bryan Smith. Each book/study group builds on the one before: The Good and Beautiful God; The Good and Beautiful Life; The Good and Beautiful Community
- Video series offered by RightNow Media
Stage 5 Walking with Christ
Members worship regularly and actively pursue opportunities to meet with fellow Christians for study, prayer and service.
