Education/Christian Formation for Children of Grace
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Christian Formation Classes ~ September to May
For: 3 year old children - 3rd graders:
Holy Moly! Yes! That really is the name of the Sunday morning gathering for children of all ages. We gather on the children's wing
(upstairs in the parish administation buliding)
to watch a Holy Moly Bible video in the Media Room. After the Bible video, children go to their age level class and respond to the Bible story with reading, activities, games, crafts, and more! We make popcorn every Sunday and children are allowed to sprinkle their favorite toppings on the popcorn. We close with prayer and a blessing each week.
Fourth graders & up:
Connect Class: A Bible Survey & Confirmation Preparation
Wednesday Evenings - 6:45-7:30 PM. Join us for Faith Builders! We explore faith with Bible stories and Lego bricks! Join us for stories from the word of God and see what scripture reveals to our pint-sized master builders!
Extras! We are a liturgical church and our worship follows the Book of Common Prayer for worship. We learn about and observe the seasons of the church year and celebrate our common life and ministry often!
Ages 4 years - third grade
"Praise the Lord, all you nations! Extol Him, all you peoples!
For great is His steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord
endures forever. Praise the Lord!"
An age-appropriate children's worship service is conducted most Sunday mornings in the Children's Chapel during the Rite II
worship service. During worship time, children learn about and begin to appreciate the wonder and grandeur of our liturgical worship. Children who wish to participate will follow the cross at the end of the Procession. The children return at the offertory to continue worship with their parents.

"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these
who are members of my family, you did it to me."
