Sunday School Starts September 11th with New Routine

On September 11th, we will have a special blessing of the backpacks, so parents make sure your children are prepared!

Over the summer, parents met to share ideas about strengthening the children’s experience of church.  Informed by the parents’ opinions we will try a new routine on Sunday mornings. Starting September 11th we will be inviting the children to begin the morning with their teachers in Sunday School and then to join their parents at the time of the Exchange of the Peace. We hope that with some teaching about the meaning of what we are doing, that this practice will give the children a deeper understanding of the mystery of sharing in the Body and Blood of Christ.

As always, children are welcome to any part of the service and crayons and handouts will be available to them to give little hands something to do while often their minds are taking in more than we suspect!

High school youth are invited to attend the service. Post-service discussion of the sermon is available. We hope that we may see some collaborative events with other Episcopal youth in the area. Confirmation preparation can take place with the assistance of sponsors. For more information on this, please contact the priest.
