Sunday Mornings

Sunday School: The Gospel Project

Begins Sunday, September 12 at 10:05am

Our children from pre-kindergarten through 6th grade follow The Gospel Project curriculum. Together, we discover how the gospel story is woven through Scripture—from Genesis through Revelation. Our groups are led by a warm, energetic team of volunteers who are equipped to walk alongside you and your child as they grow in faith. As your child matures, we want to help you lead them through the Bible as they wonder, explore, and commit their hearts and lives to the Lord.

Kids Chapel

Starts Sunday, September 12 in Johnson Hall

For 1st - 6th graders

Chapel allows space for kids to be directly involved in readings and worship, to cultivate community through games and conversation, and provide teachings that are targeted for a younger audience. On the first Sunday of the month, St. Dunstan’s Choir joins us to lead us in singing.

For those attending the 8:45am Rite II service in the Nave, kids start with the adults in and during the Gospel hymn they follow an acolyte to Kids Chapel in Johnson Hall. Kids attending The Table service in Legacy Hall can go directly to Johnson Hall at 9:00am. Everyone will return to the service before Communion.

Other Opportunities

Holy Baptism at St. George's

St. George’s celebrates baptism on certain holy days every year. To celebrate their initiation into the church, children being baptized receive a copy of the book Found, by Sally Lloyd Jones, as a gift from the Children’s and Family Ministries. We also offer an optional teaching on baptism for siblings ages 3+ prior to the baptism date.
