Children's Shopping Spree

 The Christmas season is one filled with fun and festivity!  A long-standing tradition at St. John's, the Children's Shopping Spree invites children age 12 and under to shop in a safe and secure environment right here at St. John’s. 

New, quality merchandise from stores like Pier 1, Hobby Lobby, Target, and Macy’s is priced just right at $.50-$4.00 per gift (includes wrapping). Adults get to relax while Santa’s elves help the children find presents for everyone on their list. Children are escorted by a helper (no parents allowed in the shopping area) while adults enjoy fellowship. Santa has even been known to make an appearance!


Saturday, December 1: 3:00–7:00PM
