Saint Anne’s is an intergenerational church. We invite people of all ages to participate in the ministries that feed their soul and which they are able to do. In worship, children are invited to participate in many ways as soon as they are ready. To sign up and be trained for any of these, contact Lydia our priest.
Lectors and Intercessors – Children and teens who can read clearly and confidently are invited to serve as readers or prayer leaders in the worship service.
Acolytes — Young people age 10 and older can help lead worship by carrying the cross in procession, and assisting the deacon and priest at the altar.
Youth Bell Choir – Students in grade 5 and older may “ring”!! The bell choir plays frequently on Sunday mornings, and on special occasions.
Contact for more information.
Greeters and Ushers — Children and youth may serve on the teams that greet worshipers, distribute bulletins, and help collect offering.
Activity Bags — Young children may use an Activity Bag during the worship service. Pictures to color and small toys to play with can help hands keep busy while ears are listening.
Designated Play Space — A colorful rug depicting children of the world provides a quiet play space for children in the sanctuary during worship.
Books for Worship — Children may borrow a book from the rack as they enter church, to read or look at during worship. Books are from the parish library and are chosen to coordinate with the seasons and themes of the Sundays.
Children’s Bulletins (“The Sunday Paper”) — The scriptures for the day are presented through games, activities, cartoon drawings, and pictures to color. Two different formats, for ages 3-6 and older elementary. Available each week in the narthex, near the activity bags and books.
Christmas Pageant – Just one of several opportunities throughout the year to prepare and present a program to the congregation.
Nursery Care is available each week during education hour and the 10:30 service, for children age 5 and under.
