CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES

Whoever welcomes one such child in my name, welcomes me.
Matthew 18:5
Godly Play Sunday School

Godly Play meets Sundays 9:45-10:45.

 

CURRENT COVID LOCATIONS: On nice days, children up to age ten meet on the playground. In the case of rain, Godly Play 1 (ages 3 through 1st grade) will meet on the CAC porch behind Kennerly Hall. Please feel free to walk through the building with everyone masked, as the wooden ramp can be slick in rain. The rain location for Godly Play 2 (grades 2-4/5) is the front porch of Brooks Hall. Brooks Hall is the big house on the church property. Children in 5th grade may opt to attend Godly Play, or youth Sunday school. The youth class meets on the upper screened porch at the back of Brooks Hall.

The Godly Play Sunday school program at the Episcopal Parish of St. Mark & St. Paul on the Mountain is designed for children at least 3 years old through 4th or 5th grade. We also offer a Tuesday morning program for children not yet in school. 

Godly Play helps children to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!

May the Circle Be Unbroken

Although gathering is not as easy as it once was, our circle is unbroken. Please let us know how we can help your family connect.

Vacation Bible School

In early summer, the parish holds an intergenerational learning series called VB-Us. Our take on Vacation Bible School, VB-Us brings the community together for a good meal, singing, and chatauqua-style learning centered around lectures, crafts, skits, and stories.

Special Events

Throughout the seasons of the church year, our children participate in many wonderful traditions: the annual church picnic, a church tour, games and dancing at Oktoberfest, coloring crosses for All Saints, making Advent wreaths, the Christmas pageant, Bishop Otey Sunday, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, the annual Easter Egg hunt and party, a Pentecost celebration, and Summer Eucharist featuring a sermon geared to younger worshipers.
