Children's Church School
In Church School, children learn about the Bible and the life of Jesus, and the liturgy and sacraments of the Episcopal Church, as well as how to give and receive the blessings of being in community. Your children’s special abilities to transmit God’s love and grace are nurtured and supported, making our environment fertile ground for the growth of their gifts as they participate in our parish life.
Children's Ministries gathers in one large group for song, a Godly Play lesson and related crafts and activities for two and three-year-olds through children in the 5th grade. Trained parishioners act as teachers and mentors. Our Nursery Staff is also with us.
Based on the belief that there is a deep, organic bond between God and the child, Godly Play is a unique approach to children’s faith formation. Based on Montessori principles, the Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith and gain religious language through story, wonder and play. Children hear and respond to stories from the scriptures, from the lives of the Saints, and from the Liturgy.
Children’s Formation takes place at 11:15 am, and ends by 12:15 pm on Sundays, concurrent with our Adult Formation offerings.
