Children and Young Families

Young Families gather for activities that are fun for all ages and that promote fellowship and relationships among our children and their parents. If you have children ages K4- 5th grade, plan to participate in these special events. Please follow "The Episcopal Church of the Advent - Children and Young Families" accounts on Facebook and Instagram to be in-the-know about upcoming events and important information regarding children’s programming. We also send bi-monthly emails.

Children's Sunday School is offered during the school year

Our Children’s Ministry is dedicated to children and their families to learn how to find their walk in the light of Christ. We are using the Hearts Alive curriculum for ages 4K through 5th grade. The curriculum focuses on teaching children Bible stories that relate to the lectionary readings.

The classrooms are in the Parish and Community Life Center (PCLC) located across the street from the church. Students will go directly to their classrooms for Sunday School. 4K/5K is in Room 109. 1st and 2nd grade is in Room 103, and 3rd through 5th grade is in Room 201 (upstairs in PCLC).

Nursery is offered Sunday mornings. Child care is available on Wednesday nights by reservation only.

Wednesday Night Activities

Children in 4K-5th grades will participate in a variety of activities such as classes, games, and seasonal church lessons on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday nights of each month. 

Vacation Bible School 

We had a fun and meaningful VBS! Thanks to all of your volunteers for helping us. Please stay tuned for our 2020 VBS dates.
