Learn & Inquire
Children & Youth
We welcome all families in all their various journeys and hope we can offer a space of faithful intergenerational community. We strive to include young people in the whole life of the church. During the academic year, we offer formation for both Youth & Children.
Children's Sunday formation uses Godly Play. An interactive approach to explore faith through story using Montessori principles. The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.
School-age children are welcome to help in the work of worship through, acolyting and reading the lessons. We encourage households to serve in Sunday leadership together! School-age children are welcome to participate in music ministry as well.
The first active promise of baptism is to continue in the Apostle’s teaching. This acknowledges that our shaping (and re-shaping) as people of God is something we must intentionally attend to regularly and consistently. The faith of the disciples of Jesus isn’t like buying a ring you wear forever - it is more like a bicycle that needs care and maintenance to ride ever-changing paths. We offer regular opportunities for adult learning that is adaptive, hybrid, and time-wise.
Adults seeking formal membership in the Episcopal Church should look for (and ask about) the Episcopal Handbook class, which is held annually, but irregularly.
Sort of a quick church-y ‘stuff you should know’ opportunity for adults (and teens) to learn just a bit more about some of the ins and outs and so on’s of the Episcopal Church (and more).
