A Prayground for St. John’s

This month, St. John’s is exploring the possibility of adding a prayground to our sanctuary. A prayground is a small quiet play area in a sanctuary for babies, toddlers, and their families. Praygrounds help churches welcome and retain families with young children. You can learn more about praygrounds in this month’s newsletter, while you are at church for worship, from the Prayground FAQ available here, and from members of the Prayground Task Force.
