Children's Homily and Children's Chapel

Children in Pre-K thru Third Grade are invited forward to the steps in the church after the Gospel reading for a Children's homily given by Sunday's preacher. After the homily, children go to Children's Chapel in the Choir room with our volunteers for their own story and singing time. They return in time for the exchanging of the Peace. Children's Homily and Children's Chapel occur at the 9 a.m. service only (10 a.m. service during the summer schedule).

Summer Sunday School Offerings: Sunday Morning Sunday School at 10:15am in locations by age groups during the School year (resumes September 10, 2017).

Milestones by age group.

For each grade level starting with kindergarten and ending with fifth grade, a milestone, parent component, and memory work are a focus of this year’s Sunday school class. The milestones provide the children and parents moments to look forward to in the current and future years. The parent component provides a way for parents to be involved throughout the year. The memory work component adds to the learning of each class level. The memory work has been selected with the children’s grade level in mind. For a complete look at each grade level, please clickHERE.

During this year, they will tour the entire church, hear from and interview the Priests and lay leaders, and reflect on Baptism. It is amazing all that the children do during this year! Festal means "Celebratory" and comes from the same root as "festive." At the end of the Sunday School year, the church will recognize and celebrate with them as the class joins in Eucharist together. The service will include a prayer written by the first grade class. After the service there will be a wonderful reception that all are invited to join. Each of the children will receive a prayer book at the reception. Children in first grade will study and memorize The Lord's Prayer and make beautiful shell cross Christmas Ornaments.
