Pray. Wonder. Love.
We believe that children have a deep relationship with God from birth. At Chapel of Our Saviour, programs for children and teens are designed to help young and growing Christians embrace the true language of faith. Through friendship, prayer, Bible readings and Christian service, our children of all ages can explore their identity in God’s image.

Children's Sermon in Church followed by Children's Chapel
Young children are constantly exploring our world through sensory experience. As they finger paint, dig in dirt, listen to stories, build with blocks and play dress up they are making sense of what it means to be alive. This state of wonder is one that is deeply connected with God. Our programs for the youngest children attempt to foster that holy relationship and teach the language of faith. On Sunday mornings children listen to a children's sermon, then head to the Children's Chapel together. There, they hear the Bible story of the day, told in a developmentally appropriate sensory way. The children are then invited to reflect on the story and on their lives through a series of hands-on prayer stations. Children join their parents in church again for communion.
- Young Children and families are invited to participate in play groups throughout the year. This is an opportunity for our children and families to form community and explore faith through fun play.
Upper Elementary Group Grades 3-6
Sundays - Holy Check-In at 10:45
One Sunday Per Month - Group gathering from 4:00-5:30pm
Children in upper elementary school are entering a new developmental period is which their peer community plays an increasingly large role. They are hungry to dig deeper into faith and do so in the context of fun with friends. Our program for upper elementary aged students creates a space for them to be silly kids, learn about the Bible and build prayer life. Children this age are invited to a "Holy Check-In" after the children's sermon during the 10:45am service each Sunday. They pray together, play a game and check-in with their Christian community of peers. Children at this age are also eager to serve in church, exploring faith with the larger church community. They read Bible stories, acolyte and more. On one Sunday a month, the group is invited to gather from 4:00-5:30pm and go deeper. They study the Bible, play games, get to know each other and take part in service projects.
