Children's Faith Formation
Sunday School for Children - Ministry Leaders: Diane King/Danee Hoover
Sunday School for Children is called the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. We offer Catechesis level I for age 3 to 2nd grade and Catechesis level II for 2nd-5th grade. This program is Montessori-based and also based on the New Testament. Children have the freedom to select materials that they are drawn to and have the space for spiritual growth and discovery. This is a meditative time of learning where the children reveal their gifts and teach us. We are celebrating over 20 years of this program at St. James this year!
Children meet before the 10 AM service in the parish hall (starting at 9:45 AM).
The children re-join the worship service in the church during the Peace.
We do not offer a staffed nursery at the moment. However, you are welcome to use our children's corner in the church itself! We offer carpeted areas, soft toys, and children's books for our smallest parishoners.
