Children and Families

Our children are our future and we cherish their laughter, spontaneity and joy for life. We delight in encouraging our children to discover and feel the love of God for themselves. We have Nursery care for children ages Birth- Age 2. Sunday School for children ages 3- Grade 6 takes place each Sunday morning between services at 9:00 am and during the 10:00 am service. Children are encouraged to seek, question, explore, and learn how much God loves them through the gift of His son, Jesus Christ.  Our curriculum for children teaches the Bible within the framework of our Anglican tradition.

Safety for our Children

Children are precious and deserve to be treated wth respect, care, and honor. To make our parish a safe place for children and for the adults who volunteer with them, we follow a detailed plan of Risk Management. This plan includes a background check of every volunteer who works with children. They also receive training from an approved curriculum informing them of the dangers, warning signs and strategies of child predators. If you have any questions about our training or standards in this area, please contact the church staff.

Children are a sacred trust

The safety of all children in our care is very important to us. We do not minimize the importance that parents and God place upon the dignity, value and safety of each child. All leaders, teachers, substitutes and volunteers who serve in our Ministry to Children and Families have completed a background screening and criminal history reports. In addition, all these volunteers complete a mandatory Risk Management Class which equips volunteers to understand the severe consequences of child abuse and to recognize the patterns and approaches used by predators. If you have any questions about this program or other safety polices, please contact our church office at 407-699-0202.

Get to Know God, the Bible, and New Friends in Sunday School

Fall Sunday School begins in September. Each week, we offer two options for Sunday school with different lessons for kids aged preschool through 6th grade.

At 9 o’clock, we have classes for kids and parents with breakfast served. We are using the Gospel Project curriculum, which focuses on a chronological journey through the Bible with a focus on recognizing the promises and problems that Jesus came to fulfill and solve. This class is a mixed-age group where children will learn how all the stories of the Bible fit together to tell the one larger story of God's love for the world through Jesus Christ. It also includes music and discussion.

During the 10 o’clock service, the children will study the same scriptures (from the Lectionary) that parents will also be hearing, with opportunities to connect the teaching of scripture to life together. We are using Whirl Sunday School materials which lead children through the themes and reading of the church year, allowing us to retrace the steps of Jesus and his ministry as a whole parish. This curriculum emphasizes connections between the Bible, our worship together and building faith as a family through the week. We also gather as a large group during the month for music, developing our Bible skills and exploring larger themes relating to service, character and worship.

We have nursery care for infants and toddlers at both times. Both times present the core teachings of the Bible to kids in clear, applicable ways that help shape kids hearts, minds, and service.
