Children’s Sunday School – We offer two classes, one for K-2nd grade and another for 3rd-5th grade, using the Godly Play curriculum. The program follows a Montessori-based story-wondering-response model, followed by a prayer and feast that connects children to the Episcopal worship tradition.

Children’s Chapel –  Children’s Chapel is provided for children three years of age and older. Children’s Chapel, located near the nursery, includes age-appropriate songs, prayers and lessons. These children are escorted back to the worship area in time to share Holy Communion with their parents and the rest of the adult congregation.
