Sunday School 
Sunday School is offered for children of all ages at 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings.  Bring your child for a fun morning of learning, singing, and making connections with our Church family.

Postcards were previously mailed to families indicating each child's Sunday School classroom and teaching team.  If you did not receive one, or if you have questions, please contact Anne Cullen at or 704-714-6944, or Emily Kalmbach at or 704-714-6956. 

Discovery Eucharist
11:15 AM Every Sunday in All Saints' Hall

This worship service is designed for families with young children. It is abbreviated in length, but not in liturgical content. The homily is written specifically for children, the creeds and prayers are worded for young minds, and the hymns/songs are easy to sing.

"Discovery" is a wonderful way to attend church as a family and introduce our youngest parishioners to the beauty of worshiping together.

Children also serve as our “Young Ministers” each Sunday by helping light altar candles, dress clergy in stoles, carry the cross, etc. To learn more, please email Katherine Vest at

Godly Play
8:40 AM Every Sunday in M213

This program for children ages 3+ presents the stories of the Bible in a creative, multi-sensory approach.  Godly Play was inspired by a Montessori teaching style and asks “wondering questions” of the children to encourage imaginative thinking. Parents bring their children to our story room before 8:45 AM worship, and we bring them back to meet you near the conclusion of the service.  Contact Katherine Vest at if you have questions.

Rock the Church

We believe the best way to learn music is to make music. Since Sunday morning is often the time when most of our children are on campus, we will offer Rock the Church as a formational element of learning God’s love.

Rock the Church aims to teach students how to learn and perform music. The song selection will vary widely, from upbeat to gospel/blues, to the traditional Lord’s Prayer and Doxology. Directed by our entire music team, this core music curriculum aligns with the Episcopal Lectionary, giving our children an opportunity to sing and pray together in the context of the larger community at Christ Church.
