A nursery is provided at the Parish House for newborns through 4-year olds from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. every Sunday.
While children are always welcome in church, we also offer an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word for children (kindergarden through 5th grade) in St. Mary’s Chapel from 9:15 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. every Sunday (please visit the homepage of the website to see the schedule for each Sunday). If Children's Church is being held, parents may drop children off at St. Mary’s Chapel in the Parish House at 9:00 a.m. for this service of story and song through which they will engage the scripture for the day. Children will be escorted to the church to join their families at The Peace for Eucharist.
Formation for children and youth is held at 10:30 a.m. upstairs in the Custis House for middle and high school youth and in the Parish House for three-year-olds through 5th graders. With such wonderful growth in the program (we have added several 3-4 year olds), we have a new program offered just for this age group. At 9:15 a.m., they will go in the classroom next to the Nursery, where an age-appropriate lesson will be provided. The 3-4 year olds will join all of us in BIG church at the Peace and, when we come back after Communion, they will rejoin for a Sunday School lesson.
Joyful Noise & Choristers, our youth choirs, rehearse in the Choir Room of the Parish House most Sundays at 11:00 a.m., directed by Genrose Lashinger (ages K-2nd grade; firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ann Porter (email@example.com; 3rd through middle school). If your child(ren) would like to join the choirs, please contact them directly.
