Nursery & Childcare
St. George’s welcomes children to all services. However, for our youngest children, we do offer nursery and childcare during the 8:45 service, The Table, the 11:15 service, and the 10:00am service offered during the summer months. Nursery and childcare are also open during the Sunday school hour 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. Those remaining in childcare during the 8:45am service and The Table will be brought to the sanctuary for a blessing and then taken back to their classroom.

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.
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.
