Children’s Chapel

IMG_4214For Children ages 4 – 12 we offer Children’s Chapel during our 10:15 AM service.  The children begin in the Nave with their parents and follow the Chapel Leader out during the last verse of the opening hymn.  They process to the special Children’s Chapel located on the lower level for special age-appropriate service and learning time for approximately 30 – 40 minutes.  The children take turns carrying the cross, lighting candles on the Chapel altar, and taking the offering basket to the altar once they return to the Nave.  The children look forward to being among their peers and worshiping with prayers and lesson appropriate for their age.  They enjoy the interactive “question and answer” style of lesson and actively participate in the discussion.  We rejoin their families upstairs during the passing of The Peace and remain with the congregation for the Eucharist.

TEEN Group

teen_groupFor 6th to 8th Grade – However, those teens that have aged out of this range will also find this course content applicable to their education and formation and are welcome to participate.  For more information see the TEEN Group page.

We have a small teen group, but they’re a terrific bunch who have done lots of wonderful, fun things. Every summer, they attend Camp Phoenix, most since they were small children. One or two aspire to be camp counselors some day. All of them are active as acolytes for worship services, and they have provided valuable assistance for church-wide fundraising projects. While we have fun activities like bowling and laser tag, we’re ready for opportunities to learn about the world around us. This past year, we visited a local synagogue to learn about the Jewish faith. During the holidays, we baked cookies and took them to area first responders to thank them for their service. Currently, we are reading and studying My Faith, My Life: A Teen’s Guide to the Episcopal Church.
