Children's Ministry: Storymakers

“Tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and God's might, and the wonders that God has done.” Psalm 78:4

At the Parish of the Epiphany, our children’s programming focuses on sharing stories: stories from long ago that are central to our faith, as well as stories from our community and our own lives. It’s through our stories that our faith and relationships grow.

Sunday School 

Each week our children are invited to deepen their faith by immersing themselves in a story from the Bible. During our hands-on classes, we hear these stories in creative ways, explore and make art, learn fun facts, and explore our own feelings and responses to these stories — all within a loving and supporting community of teachers and children. 

Our 2021-2022 curriculum is called Storymakers. Storymakers creatively retells stories from the Old and New Testaments through “zines,” which are a combination guide, magazine, and workbook. Every child — including visitors — receives their own beautifully illustrated zine for each unit. See examples of the artwork below!

Join us as the Bible comes alive through art, play, and personal connection. All children from Pre-K through fifth grade are invited to Sunday School.

This fall we are offering two options for children’s Church School: 

In-Person, Outdoor Church School on Sunday Mornings at 10:00 am
Meet us under canopy tents in the church garden! During our hands-on classes, we’ll hear Bible stories in creative ways, explore and make art, learn fun facts, and explore our own feelings and responses to these stories  — all within a loving and supporting community of teachers and children. We invited children in pre-K through 5th grade, as well as 6th graders as special helpers this year. 

At-Home, Family-Led "Church" School — Anytime that Works for You!
At-home formation is family-centered and family-led. We’ll give you the same materials we’re using for in-person church school, as well as weekly emails with support, like background information and questions to ask. If in-person church attendance doesn’t work for your family this fall, or if your family wants to sit together through the entire church service, this is a great option!

Please register your children so we can create the right environments and get material into everyone’s hands. Church School starts September 26. Please email Bryn with any questions.

Midweek

Every first and third Wednesday of the month, our whole church gathers together in community. We begin at 6:15 pm with an intergenerational dinner, followed by fellowship and children’s programming for those in preschool and elementary school. Children are invited to a time of musical enrichment with our Music Director, including a fun introduction to handbells, and a time of creative, hands-on art and STEM exploration with our Director of Children’s Ministry. During this time, adults and youth are invited to gather for a clergy-led Bible study that is rooted in asking questions, exploring answers, and growing in faith. 

Please reach out to Craig and Bryn with any questions.

Worship

Children are a joyful and integral part of our community. Children of all ages are always invited to every worship service, and the natural energy and sounds of children are welcome here on Sunday mornings. Special children’s bulletins are available from ushers, as well as materials to help guide children’s worship experience. All people, including children of every age, are invited to partake of communion. 

In addition to Sunday morning worship in our sanctuary, the Parish of the Epiphany holds periodic Sunday evening (5:00 pm) outdoor worship services in our Cloister garden. All are welcome at these evening services, which are especially designed around the needs of families and children from infancy through elementary school. Our worship schedule can be found here.
