Safe Church & Social Media
All of our staff and volunteers that work with children are required to attend Safe Church Training and have a background check using iCORI, performed by our Safe Church Coordinator, every three years to ensure the safety of the most vulnerable in our community. We encourage you to read our Safe Church Policies and the Diocesan Social Media Policy. Please also note that from time to time the church will record our worship services and events on video and film to share on our social media as a way to increase our evangelism to the larger community. If you would prefer that you not be included on video or film, please notify our clergy, and they will ensure your wishes are respected.
Our Sunday School program introduces the youngest members of the parish to the faith that we hope will sustain and direct them throughout their lives. Twice each month the class convenes at 9:30 AM; while adults worship in the first part of the 10 AM service, students from ages 2-12 enjoy storytelling (usually based on the week’s gospel), crafts, and other hands-on activities. Parents are welcome to accompany their children in class. The Sunday School joins the congregation at the Peace so that students will join their families for the Eucharist. Check out the dates in our upcoming events.
We offer special events for our tweens and teens throughout the year, and encourage our youth to participate in worship by serving as a lector, usher, and/ or acolyte. We believe that if our youth participate in the worship and outreach, the experience will affirm their place at the table as young leaders in the church. Check out the dates in our upcoming events.
We seek to make worship as meaningful an experience for children as possible, and we encourage their participation throughout the service. Children are invited to help the presiding minister proclaim the Peace, serve on the altar as an acolyte, read scripture lessons, and usher. We also have a children's corner for our youngest members to comfortably move about during worship.
On Christmas Eve at 4 p.m., kids of all ages present a spirit-filled Christmas pageant, accompanied by Christmas hymns. We begin to prepare in early December.
