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, August-May.


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 5th grade. 

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.

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 and special events: 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.
