OUR MINISTRIES

Children

There are many opportunities for children in our church, from Sunday school at 10:15 am during the school year to participating in the service as an Acolyte, Altar Guild assistant, Reader or Usher. Children of all ages are welcome during our services. Special pews are available for young children to stretch out. We have a nursery room with changing table in our undercroft for parents to utilize as needed. There are speakers in the nursery room so that parents can still hear the service. Children also play an active part in all parish programs, from decorating the church to serving food at our flea markets.

Our children as well as any visiting children, ages 6 and older, participate in a fun and interactive Sunday School in the church undercroft every Sunday at 10:15 a.m. during the school year. Our teachers utilize the "Grow, Proclaim, Serve" program. The children watch a DVD presenting a lively themed lesson, followed by discussion and arts and crafts projects. The children return to the main church service around 11:00 a.m. to join their parents in exchanging a sign of peace and to participate in Holy Communion.

During the 2014 Advent season, we started a Montessori Pre-School Sunday School program called Godly Play. The program is for ages 3 to 5.
