CHRISTIAN EDUCATION and FORMATION for CHILDREN

 

WELCOME TO WONDER...

Contact our Director of Children's Ministries Ann Post for more information

St. Paul's celebrates the multiplicity of gifts that children bring to our church!  We believe that all children have an innate spiritual sensitivity and we honor that in all of our life together.  We seek to nurture and encourage the exploration of and engagement with God, Jesus and a life-long journey of faith through creative art, music and play.  Our Children's Chapel is the focal point of Biblical Storytelling and creative response.  We welcome and invite all God's children, beginning with ages pre-kindergartern throughout the elementary school ages to participate in our Godly Play program.

Sunday mornings at 9:15 am  Biblical Storytelling and Music

Sunday mornings at 10:15 am  Creative Arts Response

Join us for an amazing journey.

All youth are invited to participate in the programs below and in many other areas of life at St. Paul's. Please speak to the clergy with any questions, for a schedule of meetings, or to be put on the email list for any of the programs.
