Children’s Ministries

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered from September through June.  Visit our Christian Formation tab above to learn more.

Confirmation Class

Confirmation classes are held every 12-18 months, in anticipation of the Bishop’s visitation.  The classes consist of fourteen weeks of meetings once a week on Tuesday nights, for two hours, in order to familiarize those joining the church with the history of the Episcopal Church, the Bible, the Book of Common Prayer, our Creeds and the basics of what we believe.  The classes culminate in a half day retreat with the rector in preparing for Confirmation.  All children age thirteen and above are welcome to join the confirmation class, but upon joining, are expected to attend all sessions of the class.

Youth Group

Our youth group meets the first and third Sundays of the month at the church.  The first Sunday of the month, the meeting is after church at 12:00 noon, in the library.  The third Sunday of the month, the meeting is at 7:00 p.m. in Faith Hall.  All young people age 12 through high school are welcome to attend. We play games, have fellowship, plan for and participate in community service activities and learn about our faith.  Youth group members are invited to go on a summer mission trip, for which they will be required to raise funds.  In addition, they may participate in a fall weekend overnight retreat to kick off the year.  Various activities take place throughout the year requiring time other than Sundays, such as obtaining and decorating the church Christmas tree, serving lunch at a soup kitchen, a Halloween hayride and other organized excursions. For more information contact Bob Kinney at rkinneypa@comcast.net

Worship Leadership

We are committed to including children who are interested, in the leadership of all services. They participate as acolytes, readers, choir members (see Music Ministries), and chalice bearers and sometimes even as preachers.  We are proud of the commitment with which our children and young people participate in worship.
