Our full slate of Children’s and Youth offerings returns for the 2023-2024 program year! Read on for details about each offering, and if you’d like your child to participate, please take a moment to register your child/youth here.

 

Sunday Morning Nursery Care | 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services. However, our nursery is also available on Sundays from 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. to care for children birth through three years of age while their adults attend worship.

 

Formation for All Ages | 9:30 a.m. 

Formation classes and opportunities are offered for children and youth from age 4 through 12th grade every Sunday morning, during our Kairos time. From Godly Play for the youngest to inclusion in The Rector’s Forum and Assistant Teacher opportunities for our teens, there’s truly something for everyone. Formation offerings occur simultaneously, so parents can attend The Rectors Forum while children attend the offerings for them. More information on each of these offerings can be found using the links in the side bar on the right.

 

Children’s Chapel | 10:30 a.m. Rite II Service

At our 10:30 a.m. Sunday service, children of all ages are invited to process out of the sanctuary with our chapel leaders as the congregation sings the hymn of praise. They will be led downstairs into our children’s chapel for a time of interactive reflection on the gospel lesson of the day, and then brought back into the church in time for Holy Communion.
