Children Can Just Tell

They know they matter at St. Paul’s. We show them when they walk through the door to Children’s Ministry and every step of the way, that they matter to us and they matter to God.

Join us and experience the fun and energy of being together to celebrate and learn what it means to follow Jesus. We are growing and love to welcome new families. Children’s Ministry happens every Sunday during the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services.

What Happens on Sunday Morning?

Sundays begin with the children playing together in the gathering area. We move to a Large Group time of singing, learning and fun. From there, the children go to their age grouped classes to learn with our excellent teaching materials. We invite the children to find themselves in God’s big story of hope and love.

Where Can I Find Children’s Ministry?

Come in the glass Atrium doors and head to your right. Run up the stairs to the second floor of Cody Hall where all the fun happens. Pushing a stroller? Go past the stairs and look for the elevator straight ahead. When you arrive, staff and volunteers will greet you and help you register your child. For more information, check out our Children’s Ministry Brochure.

What Should I Do With My Baby In Church?

Babies and children are welcome in our services. Many parents prefer to keep their babies with them until they start to become mobile – just park your stroller away from the exits. Our Nursery is equipped for babies so you can drop in to feed or change your little one. While you're there, meet our staff and find out if your baby is ready to stay. Parents are welcome to accompany their child at any time. For more information about our Nursery, check out our Nursery Brochure.

Who Are The Leaders In Children’s Ministry?

We have a wonderful team of volunteer leaders who are members of our parish community. All are screened and have completed police record checks, and most are parents themselves. Children’s Ministry is overseen by Janet Earle, Children’s Minister, with assistance from Linda Deramaix. Our Nursery is staffed by Desdemona Gomez E.C.E and Christina Arunasalam.

What About Health & Safety Concerns?

We make every effort to have a safe, healthy, child-friendly space. We are sensitive to children with allergies and we provide a peanut-free snack and juice each week. We have a Sick Child Policy to minimize the spread of illness. Please provide us with any important health information when you register your child.

What About Parents?

We encourage parents to connect with our community beyond Sunday morning. One of the best ways to do that is through a Small Group. Our groups meet in different parts of the city to explore faith together.

We also offer an excellent preparation process for those interested in Baptism for their children. We also have a variety of family resources available in our Welcome Area.

What Else Do You Offer Beyond The Sunday Programs?

Our special events each year include our Christmas Pageant & Family Supper, the Family Christmas Eve Service & Party, a Pancake Supper in February, the Good Friday Program, our Easter Sunday Egg Hunt, a children's Carnival in June and our September Welcome Sunday event.
