To make a safe space for children and families to build Christian formation into their daily lives so that it becomes the foundation for their identity.
It is our greatest joy to partner with the adults in children’s lives. We want to offer support and encouragement during these uncertain times. The resources listed here are not the only way to continue Christian formation in your homes. We encourage you to do what is best for your family. We will continue to check in with families through our monthly e-newsletter, and other digital and traditional methods of communication. Please contact KariAnn Lessner, Minister for Children and Families with any questions, prayer requests or concerns we can help you with.
At the Cathedral, we try to meet each family's needs right where they are, and as their needs change, so do we. We heartily welcome families to bring their children to services. When you register for in person worship, we will have a disposable worship bag ready for you at check in, full of things to use during the service and then take home with you.
Children in our worship services
We welcome children to participate and learn as fully as they are able in services, and we understand their inclinations to stretch, move, and wonder. In our pews, there is room for everyone, no matter how large, small, or wiggly.
As you enter through the main Cathedral entrance, please let one of the Ambassadors of Grace know that your child would like one of our “Grab & GO Worship Bags”. These bags are designed to be used and taken home with you and contain a Children’s service leaflet, coloring crayons, and some quiet toys.
When we hear the sounds of children in church, we will ultimately hear the sounds of church in children.
Zoom Sunday School
September through May at the 10 a.m. Education Hour
Zoom Sunday School – Sundays at 10:00 AM
Children ages 3 years – 5th grade
Please register your children for Sunday School to receive the Zoom link.
This weekly offering is a time of story, songs, games, and prayers. Our greatest challenge in being together/apart is connection. We have designed our time on ZOOM to be interactive and fun with breakout rooms intended for the sole purpose of making sure that every kid is seen and heard.
Every attempt to put kids in ZOOM breakout rooms with peers their age is made. If your child has technology fatigue by Sunday mornings… we totally understand. Just turn the ZOOM on and allow them to “listen in” – set them up with some coloring supplies or a bin full of LEGOS.
We really believe that given an opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus – your kids will want to participate too!

Please contact KariAnn Lessner if there are ways that we can support and encourage you and your children.
