learn, grow with us


Sunday School

A time of fun, friends, and learning about God’s love.

Sunday School is back in person, outdoors, with masks! Join us at 11:00 a.m. during worship at the tables outside St. James’ Children’s School (behind the church).

This year we’re using a program called Deep Blue Rotation Stations. For the month of September, we’re studying the story of Joseph, from the book of Genesis. For those who cannot join us in person, we will send the Sunday School lesson by email later in the week. To receive the emails, please contact

We also encourage families to use Faith at Home lectionary-based worship resources for children and adults worshiping from home.

Special Events

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.


We love parent volunteers for Sunday School! Please connect with Marisol or James, our Children’s Ministries co-coordinators to learn more. All volunteers must complete the Safeguarding God’s Children training course before working with any children.

Nursery Care

During our time of COVID precautions, we are not yet offering nursery care. We hope to again be able to offer nursery care for infants and toddlers in the undercroft (the downstairs of the church).

In pre-COVID times we have two paid nursery attendants who play and sing with our littlest ones. Please ask an usher or greeter to show you to the nursery. All children are always welcome to stay with their parents in church if you prefer.
