Children's Class 'N Chapel every Sunday during a portion of the 10:30 service for children ages 4-grade 5.  Children learn Bible stories from both the Old and New Testatments through games, activities, art, science and cooking.  Concluding their Chapel time with Prayers of the People,  they return to their families during the Peace.  This year's theme; "It's a Miracle!"  Children are welcome to join every Sunday.
 
Middle School students begin to examine their faith in relation to the world around them using current events, movie and YouTube clips to interpret Sundays’ lessons.  Every Sunday morning from 9:30 – 10:20 a.m. in the Parish Office classrooms on the third floor.  Additional meetings occur every month to engage in hands on service with our own outreach projects.  New kids are welcome any time!
 
High School students participate in a youth group that expands their horizons. They visit other parishes, take part in Diocesan events, community outreach and fellowship with worship.  They meet every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:20 in the Parish Office classrooms on the third floor.   A Pilgrimage trip in 2016 culminates their experience.
