Children & Youth
St. Matthew’s has a long history of offering Sunday School to children and youth. The past several years (pre-COVID), our Sunday School teachers have used Godly Play as the basis for their teaching.
On Sunday mornings, children are invited to process to the Sunday School room (upstairs in the Parish Hall) after the opening acclamation; they rejoin their families at the Passing of the Peace, so that they can take the Sacrament with their families.
During COVID, staff Sunday School has been suspended, but staff have prepared packets seasonally to offer to our children and youth.
Adult Formation has been comprised of classes offered either in person, or on Zoom, and an occasional special, invited, speaker.
We are currently in the planning stages of offering a Zoom ‘class’ on Centering Prayer – our target date for this offering is Advent 1.
