Faith CONNECTIONS for adults
Do you have questions about the Bible, Jesus, God, or whatever? So do we! That's why we connect with Christ and each other in Bible classes, Bible talks (less formal), and home Bible studies.
Bible INSTRUCTION Class
A great place to start, restart, and grow some more. We look at the key teachings of Scripture from sin and grace, to Jesus and his church, to purpose and power for today and life forever. As an introductory class for those interested in joining our church, this class also is a great refresher.
Sunday Morning Bible Study
We laugh. We ask our questions. We discuss God's answers. And we connect with Christ and each other. Some weeks we dig into a book of the Bible and other weeks we tap into God's wisdom on topics that help us face life's challenges. Class meets Sunday mornings from 10:30-11:30 AM and childcare is available.
Women's Bible Talk
By women, for women. Join us Tuesdays at 7 PM as we dig into the Bible, discuss a topic for Christian life, or just encourage and pray for each other.
Senior's Bible Talk
We're full of answers, but we still have questions. We're never too old to learn something new. We're never too smart to be done growing wiser. Join us Wednesdays at 9:30 AM in our church library.
Home Bible Studies
We have a group in Saddlebrook, another in Grayslake, and with your interest, perhaps another group in your neighborhood. If you are interested in joining a group or hosting a new group, let pastor know.
Faith Connections for Children
"Let the little children come to me ... for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Jesus said it and so do we. Our name — St. John Lutheran Church and School — shows our commitment to connecting children with Jesus.
In baptism God puts his name on our children and promises to watch out for them as his very own. Through our Cradle Roll we seek to equip parents with songs, devotions, and more to raise their children in the love of God. If you would like some Jesus-helps for your children, let us know!
On Sunday mornings at 10:20 AM, our children gather in Sunday School to learn and take to heart the history and promises of God's love.
Starting at age three, our children love our full-day, full-week preschool (half-day or partial week options available).
Lutheran Grade School
From full-day kindergarten to multi-grade classrooms, your children learn more than the basics. They learn what it means to grow up and grow together academically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders connect in a three year program designed to give them a working knowledge in and a growing faith and understanding of the key truths of Scripture, preparing them for the Lord's Supper and life-long learning with Jesus.
Shoreland Lutheran High School
We are a member of the Shoreland High School federation offering our high schoolers an opportunity for a great Christian education. Learn more.
