Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command youtoday shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4–9
We want children to HEAR God’s Word, KNOW God’s Word, and DO God’s Word!
NURSERY & CHILDCARE
Nursery and childcare are provided for your children so that you may fully participate in worship, education classes, or other special events. It is our goal to provide a safe, loving, nurturing environment for your children. Our childcare is staffed with at least two adult paid staff members who are professionally trained in adult and Pediatric CPR & First Aid and safe church policy.
All staff and adult volunteers are given a criminal background check for further safety. Additionally, the classrooms are evaluated weekly for cleanliness and safety. For the protection of all children and staff, children who show any sign of illness should not be brought to the nursery. If symptoms develop after the service/event begins, you will be notified immediately.
Nursery Check-in/check out: Your children are checked in to the nursery via a secure computer check-in system and given a printed label that includes their name, allergies, and a unique number that will match a label given to the parents. Parents must have the corresponding label with them when picking up their children. Please leave your cell phone number with the nursery so they may reach you during the service/event if necessary.
A distinctly Anglican program written and compiled by the All Saints Childrens' ministry Staff for kids ages 4-11. Children begin the 10:30 service with their parents in the sanctuary and are led after the Gospel reading to Children’s Chapel. During Chapel, they will participate in a lesson focused on that morning’s Gospel reading and respond to God’s work in their hearts and lives through conversation and art. Seasonally, children will also learn the meaning and significance of the different aspects of Anglican liturgy. Shortly after the sermon, children return to the sanctuary and partake in communion with all of God’s people. Please see Kelley Meyers or Jessica Greiner for more information or to volunteer.
Our elementary Sunday school program is fun and lively! Each week, children are engaged in age-appropriate activities that help them experience the lesson in fresh, fun and meaningful ways. Interactive learning is used in every lesson to encourage children to discover the adventure of applying God’s truth to everyday life by doing fun, surprising activities. Classes are taught by Fran Plunkett and run September - May from 9:15 -10:15 am.
Throughout the year, All Saints offers many wonderful opportunities for families to fellowship together. These unique events include our annual All Saints Day Celebration, St. Nicholas Day Celebration, Resurrection Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter, and much more.
