Children & Youth

For remote worship resources, including website, activities, and videos by our clergy and Director of Children's Ministries, Alison Barrington, visit our Remote Worship Resources for Young People page. Children and young people are cherished at St. James. Their keen observation, excited interaction, and earnest questioning are gifts to us all. Sunday School is a community for them to learn to live God-shaped lives in their own way.

Sunday Family Eucharist at 9 a.m.

St. James has resumed our in-person Family Eucharist service at 9 a.m. each Sunday. This service is a great opportunity for your little one to be immersed in what it means to worship. It incorporates singing with our popular chorister program, and sign language! This service will not be live-streamed, but if you are not yet comfortable worshipping in person, please tune in to our Sunday live-stream at 11 a.m.

Sunday School & Youth Group

Sunday School and Youth Group will resume on September 19. We will begin with a 5 week session that is bookended with ACTION: making bagged lunches for the Meals Among Us ministry. See below for this session's slightly different offerings as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. All offerings will be available over Zoom and in person, and require a sign up which will be completed on September 12 following the 9 a.m. Eucharist in Kyle's Place and on the plaza. There will be games, refreshments, and an opportunity to get to know other families in the St. James community. Please contact Alison Barrington for more information.

Senior High Youth Group (9th grade and up)

This group will mostly focus on preparing for confirmations, but welcome those who already have been confirmed as a refresher on their commitment to the faith.

Junior High Youth Group (6th - 8th grade)

This group will focus on the Rite 13 curriculum which helps kids to recognize the gifts God has given us, celebrating our creative potential, and learning to interact as a community of faith.

Sunday School (Pre-K - 5th grade)

Sunday School will focus on a new curriculum that explores what it means to be a good neighbor.

Songs and Stories (3 years and under)

Songs and Stories will kick off with a Tea Party on September 19. It's a great opportunity to welcome new children and babies, meet one another, and assess how to move forward in the safest way possible.
