Goals for 2023-24 Youth Faith Formation:

• Create a welcoming space for young people to ask questions and express themselves.
• Build relationships with God, peers and caring adults.
• Learn about God, Scripture, spiritual practices, and core beliefs of the Episcopal Church.
• Play, rest and be present to God’s invitations for fun, joy and peace.
• Experiment, explore and express faith through love and service.
• Help parents / guardians inspire spiritual curiosity and interest in their children.

Sundays 10:00 -10:40 am

As we value all ages worshiping together, there is a designated space in the back of the sanctuary by the baptismal font for parents and littles who need to wiggle and move unconfined to a pew, while still participating in worship with books and age-appropriate activities. Because toddlers explore with their senses and enjoy vocalizing, they need patient adults willing to sit near them, soft quiet toys that have a calming effect, and a dedicated space in worship for quiet play and movement.

Children's Processional and Chapel

Children Ages 4-10

Ages 4-10 follow the banner into the sanctuary and to the Parish Hall for age-appropriate, interactive liturgy including prayer, lectionary lesson, Uganda child sponsorship, and return to worship during the peace. Children under age 4 can join with a parent; over age 10 can talk with Aym about participating as a helper.

Youngest Saints

If there’s interest, parents / guardians with their toddlers and preschoolers, can engage together around faith concepts in age-appropriate ways while connecting with those in similar life-stage.

Godly Play

This Montessori style for grades K-2 fosters wonder and imaginative play through storytelling that follows the liturgical calendar.

Saints of God
Grades 3rd to 5th grade

Grades 3-5 engage the stories of the Old and New Testament through imaginative reading, art, movement, activities, and conversation using the Spirit and Truth “Living the Word“ curriculum.

Middle School Youth Group

Grades 6-8

Weekly, grades 6-8 eat together, play group-building games, develop friendships, experiment with spiritual practices, and delve into what it means to live out baptismal promises.


Grade 9 meets January – April using "Confirm not Conform" curriculum.

High School Youth Group

Grades 9-12

Grades 9-12 gather every other week. Reminiscent of “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, teens create a covenant together and participate in the decision-making for what and how they connect, discover and explore faith in daily life, doubt and questions, spiritual practices, identity, relationships, mental health, social justice, etc.
