While we encourage parents to formally enroll their children in our program, we invite our parishioners and visitors to include their children in our Sunday School classes and activities when worshiping with us on Sundays.  The class commences immediately after Holy Communion and continues through the first 15 minutes of the Agape Hour (coffee hour) after services.
