Special Events

Throughout the year we offer special programs, classes, groups, and events just for children and their families. 

Blessing of the Backpacks, Supplies, and Technology

Sunday, August 28 in all worship services

Our annual blessing tradition acknowledges that many tools support learning. Children, youth and adults bring their school gear and technology tools to worship for special prayers and blessings on these tools and those who carry/use them. 

EPEC (Exceptional Parents of Exceptional Children)

EPEC is a support group for parents of children with special needs, disabilities, learning differences, or developmental delays. The purpose of EPEC is to create a safe space for parents to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide spiritual, mental, and emotional support to each other. Learn more »

Communion Education

This class is a wonderful opportunity for parents and children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade to learn more about the traditions surrounding the Eucharist, led by clergy and the Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministry. Lunch will be provided to class participants. Childcare for younger siblings is available by reservation on the registration. This class is designed for parents to attend with their children.

Spark Bible Order

Families are invited to order a Spark Bible for use in their home and during Discovery Worship with their younger children. The selected Bible stories are written with children in mind, and the accompanying pictures help tell the stories. Orders can be picked up from the church Rotunda lobby cart. Fee ($10 per Bible) helps offset expenses. (Please note - ordering has closed, but please contact Emily Kalmbach or Sarah Ford if interested in purchasing a remaining Bible.)

Family Fellowship Events

Our Children's Ministry Commission hosts a family fellowship event at least once a semester to allow families to come together in their spiritual home to build relationships and community. Check back occasionally for new opportunities to join the fun!

Family Fun Night

Join fellow families for dinner, fellowship and fun at Family Fun Night on Friday, November 4 at 6 pm in All Saints' Hall. Registration ($10 per person, $40 max) is required.
