Children are active, valued members of the St. Bart's community.
Enjoy Godly Play at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays for ages 4 through 5th Grade. Newborns to age 3 enjoy special time together in our 2 year old classroom, while we hope parents will enjoy various forums or our popular parenting book club.
We are excited to offer this innovative learning approach to teach stories from the Bible, utilizing kid's inbuilt wonder and willingness for open discussion.
The lessons are hands-on, often using delightful wooden pieces to 'act' out a story which leave a lasting impression on all who experience it.
Please give your children the opportunity to enjoy this amazing program.

Ages 2 through 5th Grade
Classes meet all year with a special summer program offered in July and August.
Lessons are generally lectionary based for 2 year olds through 1st grade and we also celebrate special holidays and events from the church calendar. 2nd and 3rd Graders enjoy Godly Play while 4th and 5th Graders adventure through the Bible starting with the Old Testament and then the New Testament.
From September through June, 5 classes are offered for ages 2&3, ages 4&5, Kindergarten & 1st Grade, 2nd & 3rd Grader and 4th & 5th grade. During the summer 2 classes meet - ages 2-5 and 6+.
During the school year the children and youth choral group meet for an hour after the 10:15 a.m. service on Sundays (at about 11:30 a.m.) to sing and learn to read music. Their talents are showcased during Sunday services and special occasions.
For more information please contact Tim McClellan, Choristers Director.
Helping Others is a priority in Sunday School.
Children visit and sing to elderly residents at Pomerado Manor on a regular basis.
We also sponsor Daniel who lives in Tijuana, Mexico, by collecting quarters each week to pay for his food each month. The children enjoy hearing what 5-year-old Daniel gets up to while learning to think of others on a regular basis.
The Sunday School is also a driving force in the monthly Church Challenges which help a number of local organizations. Recently we collected over 100 backpacks for refugee children, and almost 300 pairs of socks for the homeless. The children also packaged Blessing Bags for the congregation to be able to distribute to those in need.
Each Friday, a children and youth e-news is sent to families so they know what to expect on Sunday and beyond.
