The Children’s Ministry at Holy Innocents’ provides a safe, clean, and comfortable environment where children can feel loved and cared for. The mission of this ministry is to create a space for our children to GLOW: Grow in their faith, Love their neighbor, and become Open to God’s Word.
There are many wonderful opportunities for learning and fellowship for children at Holy Innocents’. We offer nursery care during Sunday morning worship, Sunday School classes for children from age 3 through 5th grade, and children’s choirs beginning at age 3. For information on our music programs for children, click HERE!
We also offer special events designed for children which occur throughout the year: children’s programs at the parish retreat at Kanuga, the pet blessing service on the feast day of St. Francis in October, Harry Potter Night, the visit from St. Nicholas, annual Christmas Pageant, family Ash Wednesday and Good Friday services, and Vacation Bible School. More information can be found for each age group below:
The spiritual life of a child is a wonderful thing to observe and be a part of; thanks for sharing your child with us! Formation begins at birth and we do our best to nurture even our smallest and youngest. So the curriculum and materials we use are designed specifically for the preschool aged child. Each week is filled with stories games, music, and age appropriate crafts.
Coming to Sunday school is a great habit and one we hope you and your child will develop!
A.R.K.- Awesome, Redeemed Kids (Pre-K-3rd)
In this space, the pre-K-3rd grade students engage in fun activities and lessons that go along with the lectionary. This means that they learn the same lessons each Sunday that the adults learn in big church, making for great family conversation at Sunday dinner!
C.I.A.- Christians in Action (4th-5th)
In this space, 4th and 5th grade students join the C.I.A. and begin learning how to live as Christians through fun activities and meaningful lessons. The curriculum for this group follows along with the lectionary, meaning the children will focus on the same lessons that the adults do in big church!
My Faith, My Body (5th grade girls)
During the months of January through March, the 5th grade girls form a separate Sunday school class that focuses on being a Christian and what that means for respecting their bodies. In this class, the girls use an Episcopal curriculum that teaches them how to love themselves and their bodies in a world that puts unnecessary pressures on physical appearance. They learn to respect who they are and to love themselves because they were fearfully and wonderfully made!
