Every Sunday for Children
The All Saints’ Nursery
Located in the north wing of the
church, the nursery is available for
infants through age four, from 8:30am
to 12:30pm on Sunday mornings.
Licensed and experienced caregivers are
committed to providing a safe, clean,
loving, and playful environment. The
Nursery is also available for parents
who need to use a diaper-changing
table or nurse a little one.
Children’s Chapel
Children's Chapel is offered every
Sunday for all children ages 4 and up
during the 9:00am service in the Holy
Innocents’ Chapel. Clergy and
volunteers help children explore the
meaning of the day’s Gospel lesson,
as well as share in prayers, singing, and
an offertory. Children return to the
sanctuary at the Peace to receive
communion with their families.
Parents are always welcome in
Children’s Chapel!
Children’s Corner and Sunday Papers
Sometimes children get a little restless
during the service, so parents may find
the Children’s Corner in the lobby of
the church helpful. This is a cozy and
comfortable area with quiet toys, books,
and coloring pages. Children may pick
up a children’s worship bulletin and a
small bag of crayons on the way into
the main church.
Sunday Mornings 10-10:45am
Each week, there are Sunday School
classes for children, and on the “Third
Sunday” of the month, the entire family
gets to join in the fun!
Godly Play
Preschool (age 4) through 1st grade
A careful telling of Bible stories in
which the storyteller uses simple
objects and figures to engage the
children’s imaginations. This is a
hands-on method of learning that
encourages children to use their
curiosity, and experience the mystery
and joy of God.
Weaving God’s Promises
2nd through 4th grade
A comprehensive, three-year
curriculum which has been developed
for The Episcopal Church. The
mission of this program is to teach
children how God’s promises of
salvation are woven into our lives and
to show children the way of Christ,
not only in the Church, but also in
the world.
Family Sunday School
For the entire family on the
“Third Sunday” of the month
The entire family comes to Sunday
School to learn together! Each session
starts with teaching time about the
day’s topic, then families move
around the room together to
different activities ranging from
crafts to devotions to use at home.
Special Children and Family Events
Throughout the Year
Blessing of the Backpacks
August 18, 2013
To celebrate and bless the beginning of a new school year, students,
preschool through high school, and teachers bring their backpacks or lunch
boxes to the 10am service for a blessing. We also collect new or gently used
backpacks and school supplies to donate to ICM Food and Clothing Bank.
Carols and Cocoa: An All Saints’ Family Sing-a-Long
December 19, 2013
We get into the spirit of Christmas and sing Christmas Carols outside in the
chilly December night air with family and friends. Hot chocolate and
cookies provided.
Christmas Eve Children’s Liturgy
December 24, 2013
Our 3:30pm Christmas Eve service is specifically geared toward children and
families. The All Saints’ Sunday School children prepare and present a
retelling of the Nativity Story. All children who attend the service are invited
to participate in the wonder of the birth of Christ and “star” in the Story!

The Acolyte Team
Youth Acolytes assist in worship on
Sundays by carrying the processional
cross, lighting and extinguishing
candles, carrying torches in the
procession, and assisting the deacon
or priest in the preparation of the
altar for communion. We will not
only serve on Sundays, but also
enjoy group activities, outings,
and projects throughout the year.
Watch for upcoming
announcements about the Acolyte
Team Training and fun activities.
