Welcome from Children’s Ministries
Welcome to Children’s Ministries at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. On behalf of the staff and Children’s Ministry Committee, we would like to welcome each of you as we partner together and guide our children on their spiritual journey. We look forward to meeting you and your children. Our program would not function without the help of parents and volunteers so please consider how you might want to be involved.

Children’s Ministry Offerings
St. Paul’s Children’s Ministry offers a nurturing and inclusive environment where all children experience God’s love and begin their spiritual journey. Drawing upon the rich traditions of the Episcopal Church and by partnering with our parents, we strive to nurture the faith of every child and build a church community. We will accomplish this through Sunday School and Godly Play teachings, Children’s Chapel worship, Vacation Bible School, Stewardship, Eucharist and Liturgical education and fellowship.
We continue to observe all local and diocesan pandemic guidelines for in-person children’s activities. For the most up-to-date information about children’s events, please check out the children’s ministry updates on the main page of the website.

Yesterday we received word from Bishops Rodman and Hodges-Copple with information regarding the Omicron variant and the seriousness of its transmissibility. At this time the diocese has not issued any new mandates but clearly advises parishes to exercise caution regarding in-person worship. We DO plan to offer both in-person and online Christmas services.
