VeggieTales Summer Sundays
For children age 3 through rising kindergarteners
Sundays in June
In lieu of Sunday morning childcare, we offer a special VeggieTales program designed with our youngest children in mind. Children will have fun visiting VeggieLand, singing along with Bob and Larry, and learning about God's great love for them.
Narnia Summer Sundays
Sundays, June 2 - July 21, 2019
9:00am - 10:00am in Dandridge A & B
For rising 1st graders - 5th graders
Who doesn’t love the magical world of Narnia? We’re delighted to offer children a glimpse into C.S. Lewis’s imagination with a summer reading of one of the best-selling novels of all time,The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Led by the Nashville Fellows, children will listen to a portion of the book, enjoy tea with Mr. Tumnus, and journal about the "story within the story," the Biblical parallels that are key to Lewis’ work. Read more and register online here for Naria Summer Sundays.
Advent Fair | Families enjoy a simple lunch and make a live Advent wreath to prepare for Christ’s coming.
Christmas Pageant | Led by the 5th graders, all children ages 3 to 5th grade are invited to participate in the retelling of this important story.
Sacramental Preparation | An optional 6-week class for 2nd graders which explores themes related to reconciliation and communion. Some families may desire to use this as first communion experience, although all baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Eucharist regardless of age.
Palm Sunday | Eeyore the donkey makes his annual visit to lead the Palm Sunday procession and visit with the children at 8:45am and The Table.
Easter Sunday | Flowering of the cross and mite box collection offer children a meaningful way to participate in this celebratory service at 8:45am.
Music for Children
St. Dunstan’s Choir
St. Dunstan's Choir is for 1st and 2nd grade children. The choir gives children an education in singing technique, basic music theory, and the role that music has in the larger context of worship.

The Choristers of St. George’s program is for children and youth from 3rd through 12th grades. Choristers sing regularly during Sunday morning services, Choral Evensong, and special concerts with the adult choir.

Holy Baptism at St. George's
St. George’s celebrates baptism on certain holy days every year at the 8:45 service, The Table, and the 11:15 service. To celebrate their initiation into the church, children being baptized receive a copy of the book A is for Altar as a gift from Children’s Ministries.
