Children from Pre-K through 5th grade are always welcome to attend Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. weekly in the Education Wing. Sunday School takes place from September through May. We use the curriculum Weaving God’s Promises.
Teens and tweens from 6th through 12th grade meet in the YOSH House. Please see the Teens and Tweens page for information on their Sunday School program.
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. As per the policy of the national Episcopal church, two adults who have been trained in abuse prevention are always present for each Children’s Church session.
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!
The children sang four hymns, recited prayers, dressed up as characters from the creche scene, and brought pieces of the creche in to place at the altar. Two of the children played piano pieces and one performed on the violin. All of the children enjoyed ringing bells throughout the service to celebrate the birth of Christ.
