Children’s Chapel runs thru May, 2020. We are not meeting at the moment, not wanting to encourage the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Children’s Chapel is a worship, music and learning experience for children at the 10:30 service. Each Sunday, the children begin with their families in church and are led by the crucifer to the Education Suite immediately following the Gospel reading.

Thanks to a collaboration between Christina Lee, Danny Schweers, and Adele Meredith, ten of our youth created the following prayer on Sunday, November 10, 2019 during Children’s Chapel. Fr. David prayed the prayer at the end of the service.
Dear God, we believe that peace is: chicken . . . and a full stomach, time with those who we love, quietness, and everyone happy together. And we ask you to help us to be able to get along together, for everyone to be friends, to be nice, and for everyone to care for one another. Amen.
