Formation for School-Aged Youth

St. Paul’s offers

Children’s Worship Bulletins are interactive handouts tied to bible stories from the lectionary. Activities in the worship bulletins include word searches, lots of white space for imaginative drawing based on prompts, word scrambles, connect-the-dots, and lots of creative coloring opportunities.

Family Fellowship is a series of events throughout the calendar year to encourage fellowship outside the confines of Sunday services. Activities have included: Fall and Spring Campouts, Oyster Roast, Pizza Making Party, Caroling and Cocoa, and the St. Nicholas Party.

Vacation Bible School is offered during the summer school break. Held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. for a week each summer, it is a dynamic week that is choreographed through a new theme every year.

“How to Talk to Your Children About God”- In his article in the June 28, 2015 issue of The Living Church “Google or God? Both”, Jake Dell states that “We all do it. When looking for information, we use Google. It is no wonder then, that when people have questions about God, many no longer turn to a priest, but instead search for answers online.” The problem is that more often than not, the answers one finds may have little or nothing to do with the teachings of The Episcopal Church. One resource is a free, downloadable guide called “How to Talk to Your Children About God”. We encourage parents, and anyone else who is interested, to download the guide as a helpful resource.
