Programs for Children
For children from infant to age 3, a bright safe nursery is available during the 10:30 a.m. service.. Parents are encouraged to pick up their children during the Passing of the Peace and take their children to Communion for a blessing.
For children age 4 through first grade, we are using a curriculum called Godly Play which was developed by an Episcopal priest based on the Montessori method of teaching. This curriculum focuses on teaching the vocabulary of the church and basic Bible stories.
For older children, we use the Children's Curriculum of the Virginia Theological Seminary. This is a thematic Sunday school curriculum that focuses on the symbols of the church, the lessons, Gospels and the purpose of the Book of Common Prayer.
Classes begin at 9:45 on the third floor of the church.
