“I have called you by name; you are mine” (Isaiah 43:1)
As parents ourselves, we know that bringing little ones to church can be a challenge. We also know that the desire to raise our children in the faith can be a significant motivation in connecting once again with a church. At St. George’s, we want to make church-going a viable and nourishing options for young families. Children are always welcome in our church services and there are many ways for them to become involved, to find that they, like all of us, have much to receive from and a great deal to offer to our church family.
Nursery – we have a responsible paid caregiver during the 10am worship service. Chandra is trained in First Aid and has a wonderful way with children. If you are leaving your child in our care, please also leave supplies and instructions for feeding and diapering. Babies and children also may, of course, choose to remain with their parents or guardians in the church service.
Sunday School – we have Sunday School classes geared toward the eeds and interests of each particular age group. Through arts, crafts and games, or music, storytelling and acting, our talented team is committed to helping our children connect their lives with the teachings of our faith tradition and foundational Bible stories. Most importantly, our children are valued as full members of our community, and like all of us, are discovering the JOY of friendship and service and relationship with God in a community of faith.
Children’s Liturgy – Once a month, we have an inter-generational worship service that is designed to appeal to children and adults alike. The children are strongly encouraged to participate in the leadership of these services and help us all to understand the story and tradition of our faith in new ways.
Youth Group – Under the leadership of Tanya Schleich, our Youth Group offers a full schedule of fun activities to connect our lives with God, one another, and service in our community and world. Contact Tanya for more info.
Music at St. George’s – Music has always been a way for people to connect more deeply with God. Music lifts our spirits and brings us into communion with one another. We offer music programs for people of all ages. Our worship services offer a wide variety of musical expressions, allowing us to pray more fully!
George Express Youth Choir – Ages 7 to 14 – Children learn about their faith and help to lead our church’s prayer through the power of music.
