Children are a key focus and priority at St. Paul's, and we encourage involvement at all ages. St. Paul's parents find wonderful, clean spaces with organic opportunities for children to find new relationships with God in developmentally appropriate ways.
Children’s Formation is comprised of the following ministries:
St. Paul’s nursery is a safe, bright environment, with a warm and caring team of staff and volunteers to care for your child. Care is available on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for children ages 9 weeks through age four. Snacks are provided.
During the 10:30 a.m. service, children ages 4 through second grade have their own chapel and kid-friendly liturgy. After interacting with the lesson of the day, children join the rest of the congregation for communion in the 10:30 a.m. service. Snacks are provided.
Godly Play/Sunday School
Godly Play is a Montessori-based curriculum that includes storytelling, interaction, exploration, and creativity to teach and enliven Bible stories. In Godly Play I (age 5 – 3rd grade) and Godly Play II (4th – 5th grade), marvelous things happen as children “work, play and wonder together at the awesomeness of God.”
Building Faith Brick by Brick
This is a faith based Sunday School Curriculum for 4th and 5th graders that teaches Biblical stories and allows older Elementary school aged children to express their thoughts and analyze the stories through Lego creations. This program is offered once a month in addition to weekly Godly Play
St. Paul's Playgroup
Families with children from birth to age four are welcome to join us for our monthly playgroup meeting in the St. Paul's Nursery. Playgroups are held on designated Saturdays with coffee and light refreshments served.
Social activities for our Children’s Ministry are based on the needs of the congregation and include a book club for our 4th and 5th graders, movie outings, Pizza and Ice Cream socials, SkyZone day and bowling.
In 2017 and 2018 our children have been involved in making Christmas Cards for the Soldiers and drawing pictures for the Kairos Prison Ministry. We look forward to more outreach opportunities in the future.
Vacation Bible School
In the summer, children ages 4 through rising 6th grade are invited to join our amazing youth and adult volunteers for themed Vacation Bible School. Our themes change yearly and have most recently included Surf Shack, Hero Central and Rolling River Rampage. Snack and T-Shirts are provided.
