St. George's Children and Youth Ministries
At St. George’s, we help children find ways to know God, ask questions, and explore how they can live their faith in their lives. We encourage them to participate in the life of the community. We want them to feel that this is their church and their community and to know that they are indispensable parts of our life together.
Kids Gospel Time
Children ages four through Grade 2 are welcome to join together in the parish hall for Kids Gospel Time (KGT), a simplified presentation of the Gospel. Kids Gospel Time allows children to examine the Gospel story and reflect how it impacts their lives. Children process out of the sanctuary behind our new Kids' Gospel Cross.

Nursery and Sunday School
Sunday School registration form
Sunday School meets from late September, through early June, from 9:30 to 10:15 AM. Sunday mornings are busy, lively times for children of all ages. Infants and toddlers play in the nursery, which is open from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM each Sunday; preschoolers and elementary-school age children sing songs and explore the Bible, sacraments, and the church; and middle school and high school youth tackle issues that help them to understand how their faith makes a difference in their lives. Through Sunday School, children and youth learn in age-appropriate ways what it means to be a Christian and how we express our faith in the Episcopal tradition.

Children and Youth Choirs
Saint George's offers a variety of choirs for children ages 3 through grade 12. We welcome anyone to be apart of our fun, fellowship, and music-making. For more information see our Music Ministry page.
Episcopal Youth in Community
St. George’s has an EYC (youth) group for middle and high school students which meets periodically throughout the school year to share the goals of fun, fellowship, and service with their own age groups in Christian community. Activities include the annual lock-in and movie night (including all-you-can eat cookie dough!), strawberry festival, and charity car washes. Last year, the EYC had a fantastic trip to New York City where they toured the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and Central Park.
Children and Youth Committee
The Children and Youth Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM. It provides support for St. George’s ministries to children and youth, including Sunday School and the Episcopal Youth in Community (EYC), and also sponsors other children and youth related activities and encourages fellowship among parents. All who are interested in working with or on behalf of our children and youth are welcome to join the meetings. You don't have to be a parent to be part of this group!
St. George’s sponsors a Sea Scout troop and thus has it own “navy.” The troop is for girls and boys ages 14-20 to learn sailing and water and boating safety.
