All Children and Youth activities are posted on the church calendar Here
Children’s Chapel 10 a.m. Sunday mornings
A Montessori-inspired Liturgy of the Word followed by discussion, art-making, and song. Preschoolers-2nd graders meet in the upstairs Children’s Chapel to learn and grow as children of God. They rejoin the congregation at the Peace.
There are four age groups that meet throughout the school year. High school, Middle School, 2nd-6th graders and Prek3-1st Grade. These small groups focus on growing their faith as well as their relationships with God and one another.
- Middle and High school meet every Sunday from 5-7.
- PreK-6th meet on Wednesdays. Prek-1st from 4:45-5:30 Dinner from 5:30-6 and 2nd-5th grade from 6-7.
Community Youth Garden on the Grace Grounds
This season a few of the congregation members planted flowers that will be given to house bound members.
We have a thriving young acolyte program. Young people are trained in and perform the ceremonial duties associated with our liturgical worship.
Young people participate in All Saints Summer Camp, Fall Gathering, Spring Gathering, Bishop’s Ball, Annual Convention, and other Diocesan programs, as well as Province IV service missions. Financial assistance is available for parish children and youth to go to summer camp and gatherings.
Every year Grace children practice and perform a Christmas Eve pageant. Similarly, Grace youth offer a dramatic representation of the scriptures on Palm Sunday and Good Friday. Young people are always welcome to serve as junior ushers, intercessors, lay readers, choir members, musicians, and on the altar guild.
Other Christian Formation
In addition to the above programs, we offer special classes for young people embarking on Baptism and Confirmation.
Journey to Adulthood is a two year curriculum that 7th-9th graders will be embarking on that teaches them how to function throughout the world we live in as justice seeking, loving, servants of Jesus. We will go on two trips together as a group with the intention for this group to be confirmed at the end of our time together in May of 2024.
