Your children are welcome at St. Stephen's and on this page you will discover some of the ways we can support your little one's budding faiths.
Children are allowed and encouraged to stay in the Sanctuary for the entire worship service if you choose. However, we have a loving nursery located just down the hall from our Sanctuary should you prefer that option. An usher will be more than happy to show you the way.
During our Sunday School hour (9:40-10:40), our elementary aged children will gather in the library (located in our Education Building). From here, teachers will come to collect them by age group and take them down the hall for a Sunday School class on a rotation.
Our age groups for Sunday School are K-2nd Grade, and 3rd through 5th.
Our Sunday School rotations include a monthly arts and crafts class, a cooking class, and a missions class, all connected to the scripture series our church is following on a particular month.

Each Sunday, children and youth are invited to share a special altar time with our Family Ministries Director Steven Fisher or another volunteer during worship. This segment of worship offers insight into the Bible and God and is designed to make the children feel valued.
