Worship. Serve. Grow.

What’s Happening in Children’s Ministries (Jan 26, 2020)


Kids’ Club provides a fun, safe, and nurturing childcare environment for infants through 3 year olds during worship and Sunday school. Parents may attend church, teach Sunday School, sing in the choir, or attend committee meetings while their children are cared for. 

There will be Children’s Chapel Sunday for children ages 3 years-2nd grade at the 9:00am service. Children begin the service with their families, then follow the cross out of the church and proceed to the Youth Wing. They return to church after the Peace and share the Eucharist with their families. This week’s lesson is John Baptizes Jesus

Sunday School begins at 10:10am in the Education Building. This week is Year 3, Lesson 22: Jesus Makes People Well, from the Weaving God’s Promises curriculum. We are still in need of two additional teachers for the Spring Semester, and occasional substitutes. If you are interested in volunteering, please email us at churchschool@stpaulscary.org

Last week in Sunday School, students made special Valentine’s Day cards for Veterans and Military families. We are still collecting small snack items and/or dollar store toys for these families. Please note the deadline is January 26th. Collection boxes will be provided for cards and donations in the Education Building.

Communion Classes

Communion classes will be taught March 1, 15, and 22nd, at 10:10am, during the Sunday School hour. Classes are taught by clergy and are open to all children in 1st grade and up that have not received prior communion education. Classes are cumulative, and children are encouraged to attend all three classes. Class participant registration is available at https://form.jotform.com/200114203647037.

Participants must be baptized prior to communion class participation. A special communion celebration will be held on March 29th, at the 9:00am service for those children that have completed the classes. A coffee hour to honor the children will immediately follow the service.
