Acts 2:42 ESV "they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship"

The purpose of Adult Sunday School at St. John Church is:
to faithfully teach the Bible to our flock
to encourage believers in sharing common fellowship
to develop steadfast followers of Christ
We fulfill our purpose by equipping our members to serve Jesus Christ as useful instruments. This growth starts at home, thrives in the nurture of the church, spreads into our community, and extends wherever we go.
Women have important ministries in their communities, churches and homes:
Women carry children in their wombs to full term for nine months
They are a good pattern of patience, sufferings, perseverance, endurance, good works
They ministered to the needs of our Lord Jesus.
They minister to needs of men.
Women are virtuous mothers. Proverbs 31
Women are leaders, such as Miriam the sister of Moses. She led others in singing, celebrating the Lord's victory and redemption of the nation Israel from destruction by the Egyptians, whom the Lord destroyed in the Red Sea.
Women are a symbol of the church: our relationship with Jesus as His bride. Ephesians 5:22-33
Women love the Lord Jesus Christ, like Mary and her sister Martha
Anna is an example of a godly woman: a widow who remained at the temple, praying and fasting as she looked forward to the coming of the Messiah who will redeem nation Israel. Luke 2:36-38

St. John Church provides Biblical training to people from age 10 to 18. We plan and lead activities geared to young people.
The purpose of this ministry is to promote spiritual awareness and growth in young people, and to train them to be faithful believers. They will eventually take active roles in the church.
