Childhood Ministries (Pre-K through 5th grade)
Faith Enrichment classes for Pre-K4 through 5th grade students meet in the St. John Nepomuk school building starting at 9:15 am and ending at 10:15 am on Sunday mornings. Classes begin on the Sunday after Labor Day and end on the Sunday prior to Mother's Day in May.
Families who are registered members of St. John Nepomuk parish should receive FE registration information by mail at the beginning of August each year. If your family is new to the parish, you can register anytime by calling or stopping by the parish office. You may also register online.
The faith enrichment programs we use are Stories of God's Love for Pre-K4 and Kindergarten and Be My Disciples for 1st through 5th grades. These programs are progressive and build on top of each other year to year. The publisher of these programs, RCL Benziger, offers websites with games, chapter reviews, interactive activities, saint resources, videos, and family guide.
