We are committed to our children. Our programs provide a nurturing and inspiring environment for children to thrive and grow in the knowledge of God’s love.
The Wee Ones
We offer love and care for the youngest among us at the 10:30 service. There are toys and games for these little ones as well as Bible stories and music, and our care providers are well aware of their needs and of the concerns of the parents. Parents can feel free to check on the little ones at any time.
Christian Education for Four- to Nine-Year-Olds
We use the Sparkhouse program for our Christian education program for four- to nine-year olds during the 10:30 worship service. It is a lectionary-based program that parallels the Bible readings that the adults hear in church. We are committed to offering to our children an education program that focuses on our story as God’s people through Scripture and the customs and rituals of our Episcopal heritage. The children are brought into church to join their families for the Eucharist.
Breakfast with the Priest
This group meets for Saturday morning pancakes and a chat with the priest. In this informal setting, the conversation ranges from a discussion of the Bible and issues of faith to how to handle everyday life situations.
In addition, the group takes field trips into the community to serve and to be Christ’s hands and heart in the world.
Those children who wish to are taught to serve as Acolytes for the services.
