Our children and youth ministries afford us the opportunity to help each child develop a rich understanding of God's boundless love for everyone. The children's educational programming is designed to meet age specific needs of our children through stories and craft events. Vacation Bible School is another event that invites community participation in a three-day theme based educational program. All of these programs are carried out with the help of a group of dedicated parents and over seen by the Assistant Rector. Our goal is to ensure that each child feels the presence of God's love in their life every day. Both All Saints’ Church and St. George’s Chapel invite parents to raise children of faith.

 

Sunday School

While the curriculum for our Sunday School parallels the seasons and liturgical weekly readings of the church, our youth program offers a more diverse set of activities, so that the love of God is experienced in the community and the world beyond our doors.

All Saints’ Church offers Sunday School for children ages 3 through 12 years from September through May with a summer break. Sunday School begins at 9:45 am with children joining the 10 am worship service during the Sharing of the Peace.

St. George’s Chapel offers Sunday School for children age 3 years to 3rd grade during coffee hour.

Parish Youth Group

This program offers a wide variety of events that include a bowling trip, participation in the Martin Luther King Parade, a winter activity at Camp Arrowhead, a spring beach party and later in the year, the Episcopal Youth Event in Washington, DC. Meeting and making new friends and having the opportunity to participate in local and regional activities, prepares them for the next phases of their lives.

If you know of a young person grades 6th to 12th grade who would be interested in participating in a safe and inviting community of youth with adult leaders, please contact the parish office at 302-227-7202. It is not a requirement that the person be affiliated with either of our churches. All youth are welcome!

The message of God is very simple. Love one another. Take care of one another. Take care of creation. And while you're at it, love me--love God. Do that and you will find your way. That is the core of the gospel. That is the only sermon that matters.
- The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop &Primate of The Episcopal Church
