Formation for Children through 5th Grade
 
Nursery is available each Sunday for newborns through 4-year-olds on the first floor of the Parish House from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
 
Children’s Church is age-appropriate worship held at 9:15 am in St. Mary’s Chapel, tailored for children K-5th grade. Drop off your child(ren) at 9 am, then head to the church and save your child a seat, as they’ll join the congregation at the Peace. We will continue holding an age-appropriate service for 3-4 year olds in the room next to the nursery in the Parish House during this timeframe.
 
Sunday School for children through 5th grade is held at 10:30 am in the Parish House for children through 5th grade at various times through the year. 
 
Joyful Noise & Choristers, our children’s and youth choirs, rehearse at 11am each Sunday unless there is no Sunday School (then they meet at 10:30am).
 
Please see the monthly schedule(s) below for what children and youth programming is being held at this time.  If you have any questions, please contact The Rev'd Josh Stephens, Associate Rector for Family Ministry, at jstephens@brutonparish.org or Meghan Brewer, Coordinator for Children & Youth Ministry, at mbrewer@brutonparish.org.

Offerings of Gratitude for God’s Blessings
Bruton’s children and youth are invited to a discipline of giving this Lent through our United Thank Offering blue boxes which will be distributed during church on Sundays and are also available in the Parish House during the week. In donating through the boxes, children and youth help others by sharing what God has given them. The Children’s Lenten Calendar entitled Giving of Yourselves, Blessings In All Forms was included in last month’s issue and is also available in the Parish House. Bring your UTO boxes back to church on Sunday, April 23.
 
 
Vacation Bible School will be here before you know it!
Save the dates for VBS which will be held here at Bruton Parish this year from August 7-11 from 9am to 12pm.  We’ll need lots of hands to help out, so if you can volunteer during this week of important formation for your child(ren), please contact Meghan Brewer at 757-345-6489 or mbrewer@brutonparish.org.
