On Sunday, October 9, 2022, SsAM reinstated the Children’s Chapel. Our first event went very well. We were very happy with the turn out because these were very engaged children. Our youth facilitator, Celia Corbin, had an icebreaker about animals. After that, everyone was comfortable.
Our plan for Children’s Chapel is different than it was in the past. We decided that we should hold Children’s Chapel in the Crypt because there is a ramp there. One of our facilitators, Moni Edgar, is using a wheelchair.
Children’s Chapel is the same time as the 10:30 Liturgy with one exception. After the sermon we bring the children upstairs to share a sign of peace with their families. They are then present for the Eucharistic portion of the Liturgy. We found that this worked well the first time we did it.
We hope to help our children learn a bit about scripture, music, our church and our church family. We have an altar and a cross surrounded by a rug on which they can sit. They are encouraged to ask questions. They are full of life and have lots to say. When they come up to the church to share peace, it is so joyful.
Mary Lou, Carey, Noel, Moni, and Celia
