Children and Youth

Christian Formation spans our lifetime, and we are committed to engaging people of all ages as disciples following Jesus. For children and youth, we seek to provide an atmosphere where all are welcome, questions are encouraged, and a vibrant faith life fostered. Talented and committed formation leaders walk with children and youth as they engage their faith and encounter Christ in community. For more information on any of the programs and opportunities described below, please contact our Assistant Rector, the Rev. Sarah Cardwell (410-326-4948). 

Sunday School

Sunday morning classes for ages PreK through 12th grade are offered weekly early September through early June. Sunday School begins following the 9:30am Great Hall service (usually at 10:30am), and runs for an hour. Adult Sunday morning Christian education takes place during this same hour. Parents, grandparents, and guardians often attend these offerings during the Sunday School hour.

Our teachers are creative, dedicated parishioners who understand and love children.  Using up-to-date IT technologies in the classroom, they make Sunday School a positive, and joyous 21st century learning environment so all children can experience God's love for them.

Middle and High School Youth

In addition to Sunday mornings, youth groups gather for monthly or bi-weekly gatherings. Pizza, movies, game nights, outdoor activities, and more bring youth together for fellowship.

Confirmation classes are also offered on a rotating cycle for young people to engage their faith on a deeper level in preparation to make a mature statement of faith.

Short-term missions and retreats are also a vital part of middle and high school formation opportunities. Groups travel locally and abroad to serve God in community and reflect on their lives of faith.

To learn more about upcoming events and offerings, please contact the Rev. Sarah Cardwell

Acolyte Ministry

Many young people in the parish serve as acolytes on Sunday mornings.  This is an important ministry that is an act of service to the larger community and affords youth an opportunity to learn more about worship and liturgy. For those interested in learning more, contact our Assistant Rector Rev. Sarah Cardwell or Jeffrey Lewis our Acolyte Trainer.
