Children's Faith Formation
Wednesdays in July
Save the Dates for Family Fun on Wednesdays in July! July 10, 17, 24, and 31 at 6:00-7:30 pm in Burns Hall: The Gospel according to Pixar. Disney/Pixar movies are both highly entertaining and surprisingly wise, displaying an all-too-rare gift for telling stories which speak about the reality of life and the complexities of the human heart - and making us laugh while doing so. The Gospel According to Pixar looks at how each Pixar film portrays the basic concerns of everyday life and seeks to connect them with a Christian understanding of the world. Put these dates on your calendar: you don’t want to miss this! Dinner is $5pp or $20 per family. Nursery care for infants-2 years old. Make your reservations through Realm or call the church office. Great for all ages!
Children’s Chapel and Worship
This year we are continuing to emphasize children’s worship during the 9:00 service. Children leave the regular service as a group and go to Children’s Chapel where there will be a special service just for them. Here we will have an opening song, lighting of the candles, children’s prayers and creeds, a telling or reading of the liturgy at their level, an offering and more songs and fun before returning to the regular service before the offertory. Children are asked to bring a canned fruit or vegetable for the needy and/or a dollar as their offering each week. The aim of Children’s Chapel is to provide a liturgical space to gather children together in joyful celebration to proclaim God’s Word. We hope through the year to have a children’s instructional Eucharist and weekly Bible stories that coordinate with the liturgy of the day. It is aimed for ages 4 to 4th grade. Children younger are welcome if a parent accompanies them.
Holy Moly (4 year olds - 2nd Grade)
This exciting and fun class will use a Bible based approach of with a short video using the Bible story of the day along with activities to Discover, Relate, Create and be led by parent volunteers this year.
This is a class for 3rd thru 5th grades and it is a rotational program first with caring for God's Kingdom with Woodworking. This is offered every Sunday and meets in Room 203 from 10:15-11am. Gaye Pappas along with volunteer parents will be teaching this program.
Confirmation Class (Rm. 206) 8th-9th Grade
This class will utilize many resources and focus on the book My Faith, My Life-Student Version. The students will learn about the Christian faith into which they have been baptized—and the Episcopal Church. At the end of the class the group will be confirmed into the Episcopal Church.
Infants - 3yrs
St. Peter's nursery is a safe, loving, secure space where children experience Jesus' love through smiles and hugs, and are nurtured by our trained professional caregivers.
Sunday Morning: 8:15 am to 12:00 noon.
We ask parents to pick their children up from the nursery prior to communion on Sunday mornings so that the children may participate in the Eucharist.
