There are many wonderful opportunities for learning and fellowship for children at All Saints’.
We offer nursery care during Sunday morning worship, Sunday Formation classes for children from grades pre-primary through 5th grade, children’s choirs beginning at age 4, and handbell choirs beginning at 4th grade. (For information on our music programs for children, click here.)
We also offer special events designed for children that occur throughout the year: children’s programs at the fall parish retreat at Kanuga Retreat Center, the pet blessing service on the feast day of St. Francis in October, Fall Carnival, Advent Event, the St. Nicholas dinner and program, annual Christmas Pageant, children’s Ash Wednesday and Holy Week services, Family Stations of the Cross service, Pentecost Event, Family Service Days, and the Junior Choir musical.
When a child comes to worship, sings in choir or attends Sunday Formation classes at All Saints’, they will be taught the foundational stories of our faith so they can remember and tell these stories to others. When we learn these stories in the midst of a community of faith and over time, they become our stories and shape our response to the world. Through the stories of our faith, through regular worship, through creative fun and play, and through the experience of being taken seriously and cared about week after week, the children in our care will come to know Jesus and the unfathomable love of God.
When you arrive at All Saints’ on a Sunday morning, check for updated and special information for the day in The Children’s Compass, posted in the elevator and at many doors.
