Children, Youth, and Family Resource Ministry
The CYF Resource Ministry centers the role, needs, and meaningful participation of children, youth, and families in all aspects of St. Paul’s Church. We are a group made up of parents/guardians, students, and ministry leaders who communicate to and from the Vestry and various ministries about how decisions will impact us. We also seek to empower the various ministries, particularly in the following areas: worship, event planning, budgeting/policymaking, stewardship, pastoral care, and communication. We meet on Wednesday nights once per month.
Sunday, 8:30 AM – 12:00 noon in the classroom wing
Parents of infants and toddlers are invited to leave their babies in the loving care of our nursery staff during worship services and programs on Sunday mornings. The nursery is staffed 8:30 AM through 12:00 noon.
The room is available for use at other times for nursing in the rocking chair, diaper changes, or a quiet place to take a break with your child.
Sundays, 10:00AM – 11:00AM in the classroom wing, Sept-June
Parents Exchange allows parents to share about the joys and challenges of parenthood, seek support from each other, and learn from each others’ experiences. There is normally an informal discussion about a new topic each week. We occasionally have guest appearances from parenting resource experts.
Your children can spend time in the nursery or participate in Godly Play or S.P.Y. during this time.
St. Paul’s is committed to keeping all children safe. All volunteers and staff who have direct contact with children and youth are required to be certified through Safe Church Training and adhere to the Diocesan Safe Church policy. At the beginning of the Church School year, parents complete a registration form for each child. This is meant to facilitate easy access to parents at all times, as well as the special needs of each child.
