Upcoming Events

FAMILY MINISTRIES (birth-elementary school)

Childcare

Qualified staff care for our youngest members every Sunday from 8:45 to 11:30 am on the lower level of the parish house. Parents are given vibrating pagers just in case they are needed in the nursery. Childcare is also offered on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and during some evening and special services.

Church @ the Commons

First Sundays, October-June, 10 am, Kempton Hall.

Followed by Family Outreach Project, 10:45 am.

Intergenerational, family-friendly Eucharist service that gives children and youth a chance to participate fully in the liturgy and leadership of the service. 

Church School

Sundays, 10 am, age 3 to 5th grade, downstairs.

Godly Play is based on the recognition that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. This Montessori-based approach teaches Bible stories using children's authentic experience of God and their own natural creativity.
