Children's and Youth Formation
Registration is now open (see below)
Classes begin Sunday, September 11
At St. Mary's, we believe that children and youth need to be full members in the life of the church, enjoying worship, fellowship, and formation in equal measures. That's why we schedule our programs of Christian formation between our Sunday services, allowing families both to worship and to learn together. This year, our Sunday morning offerings for children and youth include:
Godly Play (pre-K through Grade 4)
Sundays, 9:15-10:15 am
Godly Play is designed to give children a Montesorri-style creative learning experience. Children will have the opportunity to play with the stories of the Bible with the guidance of two adults and other children. This experience is designed specifically to create a playful and engaging atmosphere for children that will foster a lifelong relationship with God and the Bible through the hearing and telling of stories.
Youth Classes (Grades 5-12)
Sundays, 9:15-10:15 am, and periodic special events
This year we will follow the “Echo the Story” curriculum, engaging more deeply with the stories in the Bible through group discussion facilitated by two adult leaders. We will also host periodic special events, such as kayaking trips, movie nights, and more.
