Faith formation for children
(Sunday school)

For children in third grade through 12 years of age, St. Stephen’s has implemented the SparkHouse Connect curriculum, which engages preteens in God’s story through Bible exploration and hands-on projects.


Children in Godly Play and Connect start the worship service with their families and leave the service shortly after it begins. They join the service again before the procession for communion so they can participate in the Eucharist with their families and other congregants (and several children participate in the procession to the altar, carrying the offering, bread and wine forward).


For children ages 0-3, childcare is provided during the service in the room to the left of the altar. The “Godly Babysitter” is available on Sundays from 10:20 until 12:15, or until all children have been claimed by their parents (usually at the end of  communion).

Children’s Christian faith formation at St. Stephen’s begins with Godly Play, an approach that builds on the principles of Maria Montessori. Leaders are trained in storytelling techniques that encourage children to enter into the depth of sacred stories, parable, silence, and liturgical action. Its goal is to help children be open to God all the time and in every place. At St. Stephen’s, we use Godly Play with students age 3 years through second grade.
