Sunday School
Youth Group

Confirmation Class

Education and spiritual formation is provided for eighth graders seeking confirmation. These classes typically begin in January; please contact the office for more information. (Older students and adults who wish to be confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church should contact the rector.)


Sunday School and Nursery

Preschoolers through fifth graders meet during the 10:30 service, downstairs from the main church, where nursery care is also available. In addition to Sunday School, our Children’s Ministry plans several special events throughout the year for children and their families, including a fall hayride and bonfire, a Christmas Eve pageant, and an Easter egg hunt. Children and infants are always welcome in church! Visit our Sunday School page for more information.

Youth Group

Middle and high school youth meet weekly to encourage fellowship and to share in God’s love and Word in various ways. Our youth group is a casual but structured gathering that typically includes some kind of discussion, speaker or film, prayer, and some silly fun. We frequently co-host meetings and activities with youth groups at neighboring parishes. Monthly service projects help deepen our faith and commitment to community. A highlight of the youth group is the annual summer Work Camp trip to help repair the homes of people in need.
