Children & Youth

All Saints is a family of families, and children are important members of our community. We seek to provide our children with an introduction to a life in Christ by educating them in faith-living, and incorporating them into our worship.  All baptized children, no matter how young, are encouraged to receive communion regularly. Parents who wish to have their children baptized can contact the Priest-in-Charge for further information. We welcome new families with children and invite you to become a part of our embracing community.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets most Sundays from 9:15am to about 10:10 when the children go into the church to be with their parents or guardians for Communion. All children are invited to come and learn about Jesus in a fun, enriching environment. Pre-K through grade 3 will follow Godly Play lessons with plenty of hands-on activities and stories, while grades four through seven will embark on a spiritual journey. 

Nursery

The nursery opens at 9:15am too, for all infants and toddlers that have difficulty sitting through church service.  If your child prefers to stay with you in church there are rocking chairs as the back of the church where you can be with your child and still participate fully in the service. And please do not worry if your child cries or becomes fussy.  Jesus loved children and so do we. The sounds of children in church is a "joyful noise" so don't worry about it at all. 

Youth Groups

The Sr. and Jr. Youth Groups enjoy many activities such as pizza parties, reaching out to shut-ins, and the community, going on hikes and also exploring questions about faith and life.
