“Then little children were being brought to Him in order that He might lay his hands on them and pray. The Disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs.” 

Matthew 19:13-14

Sunday School

Sunday school classes meet each Sunday from 9:30am to 10:15am during the traditional school year – September through May.


Children who are in grades PK-5 meet for Sunday school to learn about Bible stories through hands-on activities and stories. This class meets in the lower level of the Parish House.


Our youth meet in the lower level of the Parish House and use a variety of curriculums which focus on stories from the Old and New Testaments, exploring the lives of people who were called by God, and discovering saints throughout the years.  


Prayground

 Children— Welcome to the Prayground!
The Prayground is a soft space where kids can sit, stand, play with soft toys and be kids while in church. Our hope is that this space helps small children feel comfortable in this big space where it’s hard to be if you are small. We encourage parents and caregivers to sit close by and help kids participate in worship.
