Plan Your Visit

Worship is central to our common life, especially on Sunday mornings, and you can read about our worship services here.  In addition to Sunday morning worship, here is some information about what you can expect when you visit St. George’s.

Sunday School

10:05 - 10:50am

We offer dynamic, Scripture-based offerings during Sunday school hour for adults, youth, and children that are intentionally selected for the needs and interests of parishioners at St. George’s. Each class is approachable, theologically rich, and formative in your life with God.  In addition, we’re preparing a special opportunity for fellowship during our expanded Coffee Hour in the Gathering Space. Please consider joining us on a journey to deeper connection with Christ and with each other.

Please follow the links below to learn more about offerings for each age group:

Communion

Can I receive Communion at St. George’s?

All baptized Christians are invited to receive Communion. Those who have not been baptized are welcome to come to the Communion rail for a blessing. You may indicate your desire for a blessing by crossing your arms over your chest. Gluten-free wafers are available upon request.

At what age can my child receive Communion?

This is a question many parents ask as they are striving to raise their children in the church. Once we are baptized, regardless of our age, we are welcome to receive Communion. Our Book of Common Prayer (p. 858) indicates that, at the time of baptism, we receive the inward and spiritual grace of union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family (the Church), forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit. Once a child is born into God’s family, that child is welcome to participate in Communion at any time.

Nursery & Childcare

St. George’s welcomes children to all services. However, for our youngest children, we do offer nursery and childcare during the 8:45am, 9:00am, and 11:00am services. The nursery is also open during the Sunday school hour at 10:05am and for special services throughout the year. Nursery and childcare open 15 minutes prior to the service.

Parents are invited to pick up their children to receive Holy Eucharist during the worship service.

Childcare

During the services at 8:45am and The Table, our children will sing, read Bible stories, pray, do a simple craft, and play as we learn every week about God’s great love for us. Childcare will spend as much time as possible in our nursery playground which can be accessed through Room 110.

Kids Chapel

For 1st - 6th graders

Johnson Hall

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.

COVID-19 Guidelines

We do ask that your child stay home if he or she is unwell, has a fever, or has been recently exposed to someone with COVID-19. We encourage everyone to wear a mask in the church on Sundays regardless of vaccination status. Our children and youth aged 2 and older will be required to wear masks while in an indoor classroom setting, including (but not limited to) Sunday school and mid-week gatherings. Adults working with infants, children, and youth will wear masks. Click here for additional information about our COVID precautions.
