Kids’ Sunday School (Page 2)


Nursery Care-Infant through Pre-K Sunday 9:45am -11:45am

Children of all ages are welcome to participate in our worship, but we do have childcare available each Sunday for our youngest parishioners.

Kids’ Program – Kindergarten – 6th Grade – Sunday 9:50am

Our mission at St. Paul’s is succinct and clear, following Jesus together in worship, prayer, and service.   Our mission for our children’s ministry is to allow our children to grow into this as we walk alongside them on this journey.

Each Sunday we will gather as a whole congregation for announcements and the opening hymn.  For our family service on the second Sunday of each month we would like the children to stay for the entire service.  There will be heavy youth participation and Jim Ward will deliver a youth focused sermon. On the remaining Sundays children will gather in the Narthex as the congregation sings “Glory to God in the highest” and follow the youth leader of the day to the scheduled activity.  Children will return to their parents in time to receive communion together.

Our mixed age program is focused on children in grades K-6.  Over the course of each month children will participate in Godly Play, worship, fellowship, singing, and a simple service project.

The basic structure of each month will be like this:
1st Sunday-Godly Play
2nd Sunday-Family service with heavy youth participation
3rd Sunday-Service project
4th Sunday-Worship and singing lead by the Wards
5th Sunday-Assorted religious education, fellowship, or service opportunity

While there is variation week to week, you don’t have to worry about keeping track of it.  Just start in the church each morning and the kids will stay or go as appropriate.

Older children are encouraged to be in church and to check out Marin Episcopal Youth Group.  Contact Daniel London at for more information on that.

How you can help:
-Be here on Sunday mornings.  Having friends at church that are there regularly makes it better for adults and kids alike.  Your presence matters.
-Encourage your older children to become readers and acolytes as they mature into these responsibilities.
-Help on a service project Sunday.
-Bring additional snacks and treats for coffee hour.

The Fires and The Courtyard

Hello – The fires in Sonoma and Napa continue to be in all of our hearts.
