Christian Education for Children & Young Adults
Young Disciples Program
This program has a variety of offerings during the year for children who are potty-trained through rising 5th graders. The Sunday School classes meet downstairs in the children’s area every Sunday from 9:30 to 10:20 a.m. The Worship classes meet in separate locations during the 10:30 service.
Sunday School: Potty-trained – Rising 2nd Grade: Children are invited to wonder about stories from the Bible and beyond while exploring faith using story props, music, arts, crafts, acting, snacks, and games.
Sunday School: Rising 3rd – 5th Grade: The upper elementary children gather together for formation and fellowship activities that seek to connect faith, church, service, and daily life.
Journey of Faith for Youth
6th through 12th grade: From 9:30 to 10:20 a.m. on Sundays in Rooms 19 and 20, youth are invited into a two-year program focused on discovering and sharing what it means to be teenagers figuring out their faith. This program will serve as confirmation preparation and so much more. Youth will enjoy breakfast together, build community with peers, watch videos, share stories, and discuss issues with their faith together. Some conversations will be casual, and others will be more formal. Hot beverages will be served!
Wiggle Worship: Potty-trained – Kindergarten
This program is for younger kids who need more movement in their worship style. Children can be dropped off prior to the start of the 10:30 service (no earlier than 10:25) downstairs in Room 14. They return to the main service with Children’s Chapel during the Peace.
Children's Chapel: Rising 1st – 5th Grade
This program is also offered during the 10:30 service for young children who wish to attend a worship service that is geared more for their age. The children leave during the Hymn of Praise then return with Wiggle Worship during the Peace. This group meets in the Chapel and has the option to participate in a coin offering that is annually donated to a charity of the kids’ choosing.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
VBS is a week-long summer program for the whole community that includes daily activities, such as interactive stories, youth-led skits, outdoor games, music, arts and crafts, science experiments, nature exploration, and creative snack activities. This program runs daily from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Children who are Pre-Kindergartner/4s class age through rising 3rd graders are invited as campers. Each year, there are also counselor opportunities for children in rising 4th – 12th grades.
Club 45 is a special program offered only to rising 4th and 5th graders! This monthly club meets the second Sunday of each month (4:45-6:00) beginning in September. Meetings rotate between parties, recreational get-togethers (bowling, hiking, scavenger hunts), and community-based service projects. This club also occasionally joins with EYC and ChattEY to encourage friendships and mentorships between the youth at St. Timothy’s and the surrounding Episcopal communities.
Facilitated from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sundays in the Parish Hall, this group will share fellowship together through recreation, food, and devotional study. EYC will lead the 5:00 p.m. service once a month, as well as occasionally venturing away from the church for service projects and social events.
This group is led by a dedicated group of parent volunteers. Parents of EYC members are welcome to participate in all EYC events, service projects, and gatherings. For more information, join the group Facebook page! For schedule and more information, click here.
All middle and high school-aged parishioners are encouraged to participate.
Confirmation classes are facilitated by the Clergy and begin in the fall.
