Children and Youth At Grace Episcopal Church
These programs run September - May. Watch for announcements about Vacation Bible School and other summer fun!
Christian Education in the Atrium for ages 3 -12, 9:30, 3rd Floor
We have converted the old preschool classroom into an Atrium – a Montessori-based enrichment space where children can hear, ponder, and celebrate the essential messages of the Christian faith as revealed in the scriptures and the liturgy with hands-on activities (“works”). The children are enjoying a higher level of activity that this format offers them. Please come visit the space and encourage your children to try it out. If you or your High School age child would like to volunteer one Sunday a month to help with the Atrium, please contact Megan Hess. email@example.com.
Confirmation, Canterbury Room, 9:30
Building on last year's confirmation class the youth will continue to explore their faith and ask questions about the Bible, the Apostles' Creed, disciples, Jesus, and explore world religions. Holly Pickett and Mary Price will lead the class. All Youth, 6th to 12th grade are welcome!
Children's Chapel is offered during the 10:30 service. The children follow the children's cross to the chapel after the reading of the Gospel and a special prayer. Children's Chapel is a time for the children to hear the gospel story at their developmental level and pray for the needs of the church and the world. They return to the church at the passing of the peace. You are welcomed to attend Children's Chapel with your child.
Godly Play & Cherub Choir Wednesdays starting September 18
3:30 – 4:30, Atrium, 3rd floor Parish House
(ages 3 through first grade)
Godly Play provides a time and a space for children to engage with God and with the story of God’s people in the Bible. A Godly Play session includes a time to gather in a circle to listen to a story, a time of wondering, and a time for children to respond to the story through art or creative play. In addition to Godly Play, a Cherub Choir teaches beginning musicianship and songs of our faith.
