For it was you who formed my inmost parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works. -- Psalm 139:13-14
At St. Stephen’s we respect and nurture each child’s innate spirituality and understanding of God’s profound love for them, tailoring experiences in worship, education, and fellowship to the individual developmental needs of the child. Formation of the child begins before birth, and continues throughout a child’s life. It is our role as their faith community to help support and be with our children along the way.
If your child (age 0 - grade 8) will take part in Sunday school or any other church activity in the coming year, please complete this registration form. Thank you!
Workshop for Parents of Young Children // Saturday, February 24, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. // SIGN UP HERE
St. Stephen's family ministries team and Anna Hurdle, a widely respected trainer for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, will offer a workshop this winter that will give parents helpful tools and knowledge for supporting the religious development of their child at home. Childcare will be available during the workshop. Our new associate rector, the Rev. Becky McDaniel (who joins the staff in July), will visit that weekend and be present for this workshop.
During Lent, our children's ministry staff and volunteers offer a Wednesday evening class for children and their parents, designed to prepare children to receive communion. The registration deadline is February 27. Read more about this class here or register here.
