Support Christian education and fellowship for youth. Grades 6 - 8 meet Sunday evenings, and Grades 9 - 12 meet Wednesday evenings.
We provide Christian education for children and youth in preschool through high school at 9 a.m. Sunday mornings September through May. The mission of St. Anne’s Children’s Ministries is to help children live out their baptismal covenant by teaching them to be a life-long disciple of Christ, help them grow in their faith, assist them with the grace given to them by God, and teach them practical Bible-based knowledge on which to base their faith. Children are grouped according to grade in school. Each classroom follows an age appropriate curriculum that involves Bible reading, discussion, crafts, and games. Many classes are taught on a “team-teaching” basis, with two teachers sharing the role. Some teachers rotate weeks or divide responsibilities in each class. All teachers are required to undergo a background check and must participate in an abuse-prevention workshop. We also provide training for teachers on an ongoing basis.
Preparation for Holy Communion
The second grade Sunday school class is dedicated to readying the children to make their Holy Communion. After a year of learning about the traditions and prayers that make up a mass, the children make their communion at a special service in May. In the Episcopal tradition, children may begin receiving communion at a younger age. (This choice is, of course, up to the parent or guardian.) If that is the case, the class deepens their understanding and appreciation of this spiritual food.
Preparation for Confirmation
Prepares youth in 8th grade and older for Confirmation. Classes are coordinated with the youth group schedule. Adult confirmation classes are offered on request by contacting the rector.
Vacation Bible School
Provides an exciting, religious, education experience for children in pre-school through 5th grade during the first week in August. The community is welcomed along with parish members.
Provides child care for infants and toddlers during the 10 a.m. Mass on Sunday, along with special events.
