Chapel of the Cross offers a Nursery for infants and toddlers each Sunday from 8:30 to noon.
We offer Children’s Church for 3-to-8-year-olds during the 8:45 and 11:00 am services. During Children’s Church, we have a brief sermon and activity that is based on the scripture readings for that Sunday. You may drop off your child on the ground floor of the Education Building before either service. The children are brought to the Chapel in time to receive the Eucharist with their families.
At Chapel of the Cross, we use the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a beautiful and intentional curriculum that provides religious education and spiritual formation for children ages 3 through 12. Catechesis is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in atriums, divided by age, on the ground floor of the Education Building and work with prepared materials to learn about God and strengthen their spiritual relationships, all facilitated by highly-trained Catechists (a.k.a. teachers). Our Catechesis atriums are joyful places filled with activity, singing, discussion, and prayer, and we invite interested parents to stop by any time. Sunday School begins at 9:30 am.
On Wednesday nights, we have Chapel Children’s Choir from 6:00 to 6:45 pm.
Throughout the year, we host special events for our children and their families. Some of these events include an Advent wreath-making workshop, a Nativity Pageant, a re-enactment of the Last Supper during Lent, an Easter workshop, Vacation Bible School, Back-to-School Sunday Fundays, and Pumpkin Carving and Trunk-or-Treat in October.
