Children are a vibrant part of our church community. Under the direction of Mike Cuvelier and Susan Crouse, Sunday School runs in conjunction with the school year and is offered during the 10:30 Sunday service. This program has grown over the past several years and is a vibrant part of our church community.
Our curriculum follows the same readings as the Sunday service, so the children are exploring the same scripture downstairs as the adults are studying upstairs. Crafts and activities help the lessons come alive for the children. We are pleased to say that at St. Margaret’s sometimes it’s the kids who are urging the parents to come to church. And of course every year the Christmas pageant is a special time.
Youth play a significant role in our Sunday worship as members of the Servers’ Guild. Wearing the robes and serving brings them close to the action, and can be an especially meaningful way to participate in the service and feel the presence of God. Any children or youth old enough to take this seriously are welcome to receive training and serve.
The youth group meets most Sunday evenings for a meal, a discussion, prayer and meditation, and to play a game or just hang out. About once a month or we do some kind of outing.
When we have our Family Service on the fourth Sunday of each month, kids read readings, lead prayers, help lead music and sometimes help put on a skit. It’s a lot of fun!
