Fellowship and fun for our youngest parish families. Children from birth through preschool are invited to come with their families for a Bible story, a book and a craft in Hinde Hall. There will be time to play together at the end. All children participants should bring a grownup with them to this offering.

Our children in Junior Kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to Godly Play from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings in Clare’s Cottage. Please arrive a few minutes before 5:00 p.m. to sign your children in and provide a contact phone number and location where you will be during their time in Godly Play.

But what is Godly Play?

Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance. It nurtures participants to larger dimensions of belief and faith through wondering and play. Godly Play values process, openness, discovery, community and relationships.

Young people in grades 6-8 are invited to Youth Group Clare’s Cottage from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings.

The Middle School Youth Group is currently using the Echo the Story curriculum from Sparkhouse. This curriculum allows young people to listen to scripture in a new way, consider their response to what they have heard, and think about what applications it has in their own lives. 

Young people in grades 9-12 are invited to Youth Group in Clare’s Cottage from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings.

During Epiphany the High School youth group will be listening and discussing the Gospel from that week's lectionary. We will listen to part of the podcast produced by The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, Faith to Go and then coming up with our own reflection points. 

On February 23rd the Faith to Go team will be at Youth Group to record!
