Children, youth and families are central to our life at All Souls Parish. From the moment you walk in on Sunday mornings and find coloring sheets and crayons in each of the pews you know to expect the joy of children. We try hard to live out the instruction, “Let the little children come to me and do not stop them…” (Matthew 19:14)
Our commitment to children is expressed through our year-round Sunday School program, which uses two outstanding curricula, Godly Play and Seasons of the Spirit for our children who are roughly 9-11 years old, as well as the many special ways we include children in our worship and the festivities and holy days of the church year.
Our youth ministry’s mission to older children and teenagers (grades 6-12) is to provide a safe, supportive, and empowering environment in which they can explore their relationship with God through Christian community. Our youth group meets every other week throughout the academic year, with additional service opportunities and social gatherings. The youth group spends time both altogether and with middle and high school youth broken out in separate groups. Every summer our youth take part in an immersion trip to walk their faith and learn more about the world around them.
