Sunday School: Begins September 28
It’s time to register for Sunday School, which starts September 28 for kids from preK through middle school!
Anyone interested in volunteering their time as a teacher or helper would be greatly appreciated. Please know that this does not have to be a weekly commitment. The curriculum is already in place with crafts to go along with teaching the youth. The system has been designed to make an easy transition in guiding our children with all resources available in the office and in each grade level room. Please contact Julie Anderson if you would like more information about volunteering.
Children from Pre-K through 5th grade are always welcome to attend Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. weekly during the school year in the Education Wing. Sunday School takes place from September through May. We use the Episcopal curriculum Weaving God’s Promises. Please see the Teens and Tweens page for information on Christian education for kids in 6th through 12th grade. Teens in grades 9-12 are also welcome to become student aids in the elementary Sunday School classrooms. Contact Julie Anderson with any questions about Sunday School, or to register.
Children in the Church
Children are an integral part of our life as a church family. We consider them not just the future of our church, but the present. Children are always welcome to participate fully in worship services and church life. If desired, nursery care is available for children up through age 4 during our 10:30 a.m. Sunday service and at many events. All volunteers and employees who work with children in any capacity are trained in abuse prevention and child safety through our diocesan offices. We welcome you and your children to St. Hilary’s!
Children of all ages are welcome to sit with their families during any of our services. In an effort to engage children ages 4-12 in a worship experience appropriate to their developmental level, Children’s Church is provided each Sunday during the 10:30 a.m. service. Shortly after the church service begins, children ages 4-12 are invited to follow the cross to a room next door, where they can participate in an age-appropriate lesson that follows the weekly Scripture readings that we hear in the regular service. Often their lesson will include time to draw or do a craft or time for movement and physical activity. The children return to the sanctuary to sit with their families just before communion. Children’s Church is a time to grow, learn, and have fun … we hope you will join us as we celebrate God’s love and learn to be part of His church! Please contact Rebecca Jones for more information about Children’s Church. Loving adults are also needed to help with this ministry.
