Learning Together

PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN

Our All God’s Children Worship is an active, joyful and welcoming service designed for young children and children with special needs. The service is held on the first and third Sundays of the program year, from 9:00 – 9:30 am. Each service follows one particular theme through all the elements of worship, to appeal to children with different learning styles. Children are truly welcome to be themselves and bring all of who they are to worship.

Christian education for children and youth is offered during our main 10:15 service. We begin in the church to hear the Scripture for the day, and then gather down in the parish hall after the reading of the Gospel.

In our Play and Pray Pre-K and Nursery, we begin to teach our youngest the Lord Prayer, sing songs and hear the stories of our faith.

The Elementary school class uses a combination of Godly Play and David Cook’s curriculum. Godly Play is a Montessori-based exploration of Bible stories. Cook’s elementary curriculum offers fun, engaging crafts and resources to connect kids to their faith.

            Confirmation Classes are offered once a year for parishioners age 16 or older who wish to make a public adult confession of faith before the Bishop and the wider diocesan community.

Episcopalians believe that all the baptized can receive the Eucharist, regardless of their age. However, a class on the Eucharist can be offered by the priest for parents who wish their children to prepare for a First Communion.
