Godly Play: "Godly Play" is a term coined by Jerome Berryman to describe an approach to children's spiritual formation that is based on creating a sacred space in which to present the stories of our faith, wonder about them together, and then allow the children open-ended opportunities, usually with art supplies, to engage the story on their own terms. We have two age based Godly Play rooms, each with their own materials. We meet at 9am and the children join us for worship at 10am.
Rite 13: Young people enter Rite 13 probably at age twelve. (The young person should turn thirteen sometime during the two-year duration of Rite 13.) When they turn thirteen, this event is celebrated in the church with a service loosely modeled on the Jewish bar mitzvah.
Acolytes: Acolytes are part of the Worship Ministry Team which includes the clergy, vergers, lay readers, ushers, and the choir and other musicians. Being an acolyte provides children and young adults with the unique opportunity to more fully participate in the worship service.
