Church School and Youth Groups

All members of our Church School staff are committed to helping our children and youth grow in their relationships with each other, neighbors, self, and God in a Christian atmosphere of love, acceptance, and welcome.  The curricula we use are Scripturally-based and consistent with Episcopal theological principles and spiritual practices.  And, they reflect a toolbox approach (i.e., DVDs, digital downloads, printed leader guides and learner packs) for greater flexibility.

Our Middle School and High School Youth Groups meet on Sunday afternoons for fellowship, fun, and faith building.  Our High School Bible Study Groups meet on Thursday mornings before school.  Youth also participate in Mission Opportunities locally and nationally.
