Families are an integral part of our community, from Sunday Eucharist & Christian Education, to family-friendly games, activities & events.
Families at St. C's
Families are an integral part of our community. St. C's offers a Sunday Nursery for infants & toddlers during morning worship and we include families in our weekly celebration of the Eucharist. Older children are invited to serve as Acolytes, Ushers, and Readers. Baptism and Confirmation preparation are available upon request. We also hold a variety of family-friendly activities throughout the year. Please Join Us!
Sunday School 2017-18
This year St. C's is excited to offer Godly Play for Church School! The Godly Play curriculum is based on Montessori principles and uses a Bible-centered approach to help children explore the Christian faith with wonder and play. Children engage their faith through story and gain religious language in the liturgical context of worship and community.
All children are invited to join us for Godly Play beginning on Sunday, September 17th. Godly Play will meet in the downstairs classroom from 9:50 until 10:30 AM. Children will then join the worship service upstairs for Eucharist with their families. The Godly Play story will be offered as a "one room" school house for all children up to age 12. After the story we will break out into age-appropriate groups for reflection and responses to the lesson. Our Godly Play storytellers this year are Fr. Eric Litman, Emily Litman, and Laurie Hutcheson.
About Godly Play:
Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their Christian experience though wonder and play. The Godly Play method effectively serves children throughout their Childhood and provides a foundation for Christian faith in the liturgical context of worship and community. The form of the curriculum mirrors the liturgical action of our worship service. Children hear a "sacred story" (scripture), respond to the story through play or creative expression during the "work time" (prayers of the people) and share a small snack during "feast time" (Eucharist). This pattern of learning works to nurture our children's spirituality using a pattern of exploration that dovetails with the historic liturgy of the Church. Come wonder with us about the living God who dwells among us!
