Children & Youth
Childcare is available during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service for children ages 3 and younger in the Godly Play Room.
Sunday School classes (preschool – 2nd grade and 3rd – 8th grade) are held on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month, beginning at 10:00 a.m., the same time as the church service starts; children join their parents in the church in time for communion. On 2nd Sundays children attend church with their parents, either the 10:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist service or the 5:30 p.m. Family Worship Service. When there is a 5th Sunday, children attend church with their parents, with some of the children taking part in leading the service.
Our adult education mini-series, Theological Liner Notes, was a lot of fun. Thanks to those who participated, and especially to those who provided wonderful food. Stay tuned for more Christian education opportunities in the new year.
The Stambaughs will be away visiting family from Dec. 26-30. Fr. James can still be reached by email or phone.
Home Blessings – The season of Epiphany is a customary time to have your home blessed by a priest. Fr. James will be offering home blessings during this period starting on Epiphany (January 6th). If you would like to have your home blessed, look for the sign up sheet in the parish hall.
