Nursery Care: Our newly renovated Nursery is available for infants through toddlers from 9:30 through the end of the 10:30 service. We have two full time attendants and a paging service so that parents have the opportunity to worship and hear God's Word, confident that their young children are in a safe and loving place.

Godly Play Class: Godly Play is an innovative approach to Christian education and spiritual development developed by Episcopal priest Jerome Berryman. It has been in church classrooms since 1972 and is currently used internationally by many different denominations. Using a Montessori philosophy, Godly Play creates a community around children that honors their faith journey and their individual timing of connecting with God’s Story. Quality crafted hands-on materials representing stories of God invite children into these stories through wonder and play. When they and the adults who work with them enter these stories they enter a world open to the mystery of the presence of God. Our Godly Play class is offered to Preschool through 1st Grade students and meets at 10:15 on Sunday mornings.

Deep Blue Class (Be with God. Love God and Neighbor. Understand themselves as Children of God. Explore Faith and the Bible): Through Deep Blue, children make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives. They also come to know the Bible as THEIR book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today! Deep Blue incorporates Bible stories, science activities, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games into a lived-faith experience to help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today! The Deep Blue kids - Asia, Edgar, and Kat - lead the children through the Bible using animated videos that tell the story. The student resources - the Bible Story Stuff, the Kids Activity Stuff, and the Deep Blue Kids Bible - are colorful and engaging, encouraging the children to “dive deeper” into the Bible and explore their faith in fun and age-appropriate ways. Our Deep Blue Class is open to students in 2nd – 5th Grade and meets at 10:15 on Sunday mornings.

St. Paul’s Youth & Confirmation Class: This class is open to all students from 6th Grade on up and will prepare those who want to be confirmed. It meets Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15.

Lectionary Discussion Group: This group meets with the Rector in the 1642 Coffee Lounge Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15 to discuss informally the assigned Scripture readings for the day.

The Women's Study Group: The WSG meets the second Monday of each month, October through June at 7:00 PM in the Guild Room. It is a social and service organization open to all women attending St. Paul’s. The group’s purpose is spiritual enrichment, growth in Christian faith, and formation of friendships through book study, discussion, prayer, and socializing. The WSG also ministers to church newcomers through the presentation of welcome gift bags.

The Women's Bible Study: This group meets several times over the course of the year to engage in 4-8 week study programs. Most often it meets at the church on Wednesday mornings under the leadership of Norma Spain.
