Our Children’s Ministries program serves children from birth to 5th grade and their families. Our goal is to provide quality programming that encourages children to develop their relationship with God, the church community, and the world around them.

Family Fun Movie Night
This opportunity is for families of all ages, shapes and sizes – feel free to bring your friends! All activities will be in the parish hall. We will have chairs, but families are also welcome to bring lawn chairs or blankets, pillows, etc to sit on the floor. This event is in the early stages of planning, so the movie, date, and time are still to be determined. Watch these sources for updates!

Children in Liturgy
We encourage families to sit near the front of the church so that they can see what is happening throughout the service. We welcome children of all ages, and we understand that this means a little more noise and commotion. We welcome families to sit on the left side of the church up front where we have a special family space. Here the children can see what is happening at the altar. You will find some quiet activities of children of all ages, and there are also worship bags that you may pick up in the Narthex. We do ask that families clean up the space before they leave.
At the end of each service the Deacon invites all children to join her at the baptismal font for the dismissal. In addition, we encourage children to sign up to be Gift Bearers and Acolytes
