Christian Education for Young People
Every Sunday, the children of our parish join us at beginning of our celebration of the Eucharist. They are with us for the procession until the start of the Liturgy of the Word.
After this, they are dismissed and join our dedicated team of educators to learn more about God's word. They discuss the day's Gospel story and how its lessons can be applied to daily life. Rather than memorizing Bible verses, we encourage them to become more compassionate and more aware of their community and the world around them. The children then rejoin us when we exchange the sign of peace and remain with us until the conclusion of our celebration of the Eucharist.
The children also engage in various activities throughout the liturgucal year -- reenacting the Christmas story, assisting in the blessing of the animals, providing decorations for for various fellowship events.
For those who are interested in learning more about the Episcopal Church, we offer an Inquirers Class each year. Sessions are scheduled on designated Sundays and are led by Father Greg. Lay people who act as sponsors also attend and share their faith stories.
