Children are excused for Children's Chapel after the Collect of the Dayand then return in time to share the Eucharist with their families. Children's Chapel uses the curriculum of Godly Play.TheGodly Play approach helps childrento explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond.

Blessing the Symbols of Our Labor –

THIS Sunday, August. 31

The Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, August 31, bring to worship a symbol of your labor, something you do that connects to the wider human community. It could be what you do for work, a hobby, a volunteer activity, your church ministry, or work you have retired from. For the sermon time, we will share with one another the story of our labors and then bring them forward to the altar for a blessing.
