Christian Education

St. Paul’s offers both worship and religious study and supports the development of students learning how to combine faith and reason.

Chapel

Each week, the children in 1st through 6th grade have three opportunities to participate in chapel.  Monday’s chapel service is fun and exciting with the message often being delivered in skit or puppet form. On Wednesdays, students participate in a formal chapel service, using the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. “Friday Chapel” allows students to sing along and present things they’ve learned in music class.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend Morning Prayer on Monday and Wednesdays.

Christian Education

Children, ages two through five, participate in a chapel service designed especially for them each week. During this time, they experience the stories of the Bible through hands-on story telling. They also participate in prayer and singing as part of this service.

Weekly, the Director of Christian Education from St. Paul’s Church visits the 1st through 5th grade classrooms. Students follow a three-year rotation schedule which allows them to learn much of the Bible in that time. Sixth graders meet with the Rector each week and discuss the truths found in the Bible.  This class also incorporates a look at what other religions believe and some of the struggles and successes seen as people of varying religions live and work together.

Special Events

St. Paul’s Church and School celebrate many special events throughout the year.  Some of the most memorable include the Blessing of the Animals and our Thanksgiving and Advent Services.
