We believe that learning and growing in our faith begins at birth, and never ends! During the school year (September through early June), we offer the following opportunities:
Staffed Nursery- Children 6 weeks to age 3 are welcome in our warm and loving nursery room from 9:45-11:00am
Sunday School - Children pre-school through fourth grade meet at 10:00Am downstairs for a bible lesson and craft, followed by music time with Mark Sullivan. They return to their parents at Announcement Time during the service.
Middle School program - Students in grades 5 through 9 gather for a lesson from 10:00-10:45 AM with Tyler Jarvis downstairs; they join their families before the Great Thanksgiving (after the sermon).

We use the "Weaving God's Promises" Episcopal curriculum, which is a scope and sequence format set of lesson plans. Sunday School lessons typically include Bible lessons, arts and crafts, games, singing and more fun! We currently have several volunteer teachers; parents and care-givers are always welcome to participate and support this vital ministry. Your child is welcome to join Sunday School or our youth groups at any point during the school year.
Young Adult program - starting in grade 9 or 10 our young adults are invited to attend confirmation classes from September till April, when they will be confirmed.
Adult Bible Study - happens at 9:30 AM on Thursday mornings. A Rectory Forum gathers at 9 AM on Sunday mornings (in between the 8 AM and 10 AM services) for topical discussions and, occasionally, to "Stump the Rector." In the early fall, in Lent and Eastertide, folks gather on Tuesday evenings for supper and conversation around a selected book or video. All of these groups meet in the Rectory.
