Please watch this website, Facebook, the Herald and Enlightener for upcoming special youth events! There is also a special bulletin board just across the hall from Pastor Addie’s office for news and pictures from youth events! You can also keep up with the latest events on our St. John’s Facebook group just for members and friends. Ask Pastor Addie or our social media administrator John Hendricks to let you join the Facebook group!
“Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

Help a Friend…Help Yourself – Important Notice to Youth Below
Have a friend or family member having trouble coping with life right now? Never assume ‘they’ll get over it’ – talk with them, show your support, offer them the chance to speak confidentially with our pastors. Teenage & adult suicides is a reality in Montgomery & Bucks counties. There is a new nationwide phone number, 988, for direct connection to care and support for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress, including thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance abuse crises, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support. Please let people know about dialing 988 – it is also on our homepage.
