St. Bartholomew's Children and Youth Ministries
St. Bartholomew's is also home to the Room to Grow Preschool, which is run independantly of the church. Please contact the school directly.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored a Saint. Your generosity will make it possible for our Godly Play program to be a great success in the Fall. If you would still like to sponsor a Saint, please let Abigail Plemmons know, there are still Saints to sponsor.
Sunday School will be on Summer Break starting June 16th, resuming in September
During the summer combined service, we will have child care available for children age 5 years and younger. They will be looked after in the Room to Grow area by older youth and adults. Anyone wishing to help watch the children, are asked to please complete the ‘Safe Church’ training, found on our website under the youth & children tab.
Godly Play will resume in September, are you interested in helping with this ministry? Our regular teachers would love to have a few adults willing to come teach a Godly Play story once in a while. No experience needed, all materials are provided, even step by step instructions for any Godly Play story. Come enjoy this great ministry.
It’s Time for St Bart’s Vacation Bible School!
VBS will be July 8 to 12 from 1pm to 4pm. Children ages 5 to 12 are welcome to participate and older youth are encouraged to come and be mentors and help. Our theme this year is “It takes an Ark,” the story of Noah’s Flood. We will be making animal masks, learning hymns related to the story, participating in water activities, live animals, storytelling and much, much more.
The Youth group meets every Sunday in the room “Under the Fig Tree"
from 4pm to 5:30pm. All youth in grades 6 and up are welcome to attend.
Thank you to our great youth leaders – Kerstin and Karene!
