Since 1915 the children of St. John's have been the happy heart of our church community. We are an exuberant and reverent place where children learn confidence in their connection to God, grow it, maintain it, and pass it on through our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Christingle Christmas Pageant – Christmas Eve – 4:00 pm
Christingle first appeared at a Moravian Church in Germany in 1747. The Minister, John De Watteville, gave the children at the Christmas Eve service an orange topped with a lit candle representing The Christ Child as the light of the world. His final prayer of this first service was, “Lord Jesus, kindle a flame in these children’s hearts, that theirs like Thine become”. Thereafter this custom went to England then ‘round the world and eventually landed in Lattingtown! Here at St. John’s we have a Christingle Christmas Pageant every Christmas Eve with children and families, celebrating the birth of the Baby Jesus.
Easter Egg Hunt – Easter Sunday – Following the 10:30 am Service
After Easter worship, children are invited to hunt for Easter eggs in the St. John’s Memorial Garden. Volunteers are always needed to hide the eggs and help with eager young hunters.
