Children & Family Ministry

 Upcoming Children and Youth Family Events

Tuesday Evening Ministry Coming in October
Create, the Tuesday evening youth and family ministry night at St. Paul’s, will resume in October. As we plan we have kept in mind many different options and configurations during this time of pandemic. Miss Kelly will be doing craft and art projects based on the three themes for fall: Leaves to place on a tree for the healing of the Nations, Self-portraits for All Saints, Crowns for Christ the King. Keep the Beat, percussion based music making sessions will be led by Mr. Fields. Families will be able to pick and choose the components in which they wish to enroll. There will be three two week units. The reservation sheet will clarify who will be doing what with whom! Please enter through the Springettsbury Avenue entrance. Hand sanitizer is available in the Good Shepherd room, at the top of the stairwell on the Upper Level, and inside the music room. In addition to these fall opportunities we are planning for another Family Gingerbread Nativity making night on December 1st. Please complete the reservation form and return it to the church office so that preparations as well as health and safety precautions may be made. For additional information on the programs listed below please contact Miss Kelly or Mr. Fields.
