Programs for Children
Grace and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church is a place where children can grow in God’s love. All adults working with children in our parish are required to follow the Colorado diocesan guidelines and complete the child safety training “Safeguarding God’s Children.”
Our Sunday morning schedule:
- Nursery for 3 months to age 3: 7:45 am-12:30 pm
- Sunday School for ages 3-11 at 10:15 am (August-May)
- Wee Worship Second Sundays, 10:30 am (September-May) for families with newborns to age 6
Our youngest visitors may remain with their parents in the sanctuary or join the nursery, located in the education wing. Our staff is experienced and trained in child and infant CPR and create a safe, nurturing environment that is age appropriate for babies (3 months old) and toddlers (age 3 and under). For more information about the nursery program, please contact Helen Hazelton, director of children’s programs.
Vacation Bible School is Coming! Join us for Camp Grace June 19-23!
Ahhh! What's better than camp in the summer? Toasting marshmallows, singing camp songs, creating funny skits, looking for forest creatures? Well, Camp Grace will have all that -- and best of all -- Jesus as our guide! Children ages 3 to 12 (and their friends and neighbors!) are invited to join us at Camp Grace Vacation Bible School (VBS) from 5 pm-7 pm June 19-23 right here!
Evenings will begin with a simple supper for the whole family. Then, with Jesus as their guide, the children will participate in stories, crafts and dramatic skits as they learn that Jesus calls them, Jesus loves them, Jesus prays with them, Jesus feeds them and Jesus teaches them to serve. During the week the children will assemble gift bags for Grace in the Park, a newly launched ministry here at Grace, offering spiritual support, opportunities for worship, and meaningful community for those living on the streets. The week will end Friday evening with the children serving dinner to their parents and performing the skits they worked on all during the week.
And Camp Grace isn't just for the children. We'll offer "Faith in the Home," two evenings during the week for the parents or adults who bring their children to VBS. This program is designed to support parents to create a strong faith home for their children and offer creative ways to carry the lessons learned during VBS home!
