The mission of Children and Family Ministries at St. Paul’s is to foster a rich inner life in the Episcopal tradition that will accompany our children through both the tempestuous storms and peaceful mountaintops of life. We attempt faith formation that is well-rounded, attending both to the needs of one’s own spirit as well as to the importance of compassionate self-giving in response to the needs of the world. We also strive to forge meaningful bonds among the various families within our community by offering a variety of opportunities for engagement. 

St. Paul’s Children & Family Ministry offers Church School on Sundays during the 10:15 a.m. Sunday service. Your children will be met at the Welcome Table to be escorted to the classroom. 

We also have a community of support for parents, through bi-weekly offerings like Mom’s Gathering.

Examples of some of our past creative offerings:

  • Family Holy Hike (in person, socially distanced)
  • Family Game Night (Zoom)
  • Outdoor Screening of the movie “Coco” (in person, socially distanced)
  • Thanksgiving Art Workshop: Stained-Glass Leaves (Zoom)
  • Drive-In Family Carol’s Night (in person, socially distanced)
  • Christmas Cookie Decorating Party (Zoom)

It would be wonderful to see you and support you more deeply through these spaces!

Goals of Church School:

  • To foster a safe, delightful, loving community in which to explore spirituality
  • To expose them to the tools of the Christian Tradition that can lead to a grounded, satisfying, and consciously-lived life
  • To help them form an ethical way of living • To give them the assurance that they are loved fully by God and can be agents of God’s love in their own world
  • To nurture theological reflection from a progressive perspective, using stories from the Bible as well as other sources  Curriculum


We use a variety of curricula throughout the year for the elementary class, interspersing special lessons from the Montessori-based Godly Play, Illustrated Children’s Ministry, and Progressive Christianity. For Middle School, we use a beautiful, engaging curriculum from Seasons of the Spirit.
