    All children in grades K-5 are invited to leave with a worship leader after the opening prayer for a special Liturgy of the Word for Children in the Chapel (no advance sign-up required). We follow the approved Children's Lectionary. The children will rejoin the congregation at the Preparation of the Gifts. We're looking for a few more leaders. High school students welcome! Training is provided. Time commitment is about one hour per month. Please contact Jimmy Barnett.


Sacramental Preparation:

Catechists partner with parents to help prepare children for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Communion). Children attend regular classes and parents/children participate in additional sessions. Most children receive First Communion in May of their 2nd grade year. Older children are welcome.  Contact Jimmy Barnett for more information.
