Children and Worship

Children are welcome to worship at any of our services, but we have a number of services that are designed particularly with children in mind.

During the program year, the 9 am Sunday Eucharist in the Church Nave is recommended for children ages 4–10. Children ages 3-8 are invited to go out for Storytime after the Gospel reading for an age appropriate story and prayers and they return at the Peace. Preschool children and their families are invited to worship in the Great Hall at 9:15 or 11:15 am, where shorter services encourage preschoolers to use all their senses as they explore their budding faith. (If you worship in the Great Hall, you will see we are wide open in spirit!).

During the summer, the 9:15 am Eucharist is recommended for pre-school children and their families in the Church Nave. Please keep in mind, children are welcome at all our services.

Along with our regular Sunday worship schedule, we have several special services throughout the year that are designed specifically for children. These include:

•    Epiphany service and party on Jan. 6, beginning with a brief service of prayers, an Epiphany story from the Bible and songs.

•    Ash Wednesday children’s service at 5 pm in the Church Nave with prayers, story, songs and the imposition of ashes.

•    Maundy Thursday (A Child’s Walk Through Holy Week) in which children experience the events of Holy Week through story and prayers.

•    Good Friday (Children’s Stations of the Cross), where children walk around the Church Nave hearing the story of Christ’s death in an age-appropriate way.
