Parents are always welcome to attend with their child; children who need use the restroom or need extra comfort will be returned to their parents. Each Sunday we need children to help lead worship and adults to be shepherds. Sign up for one or more Sundays at stpaulsindy.org/signup.
ABOUT ABC CHOIR This special program for ages 4-8 strengthens musical listening skills and helps children find their voice, teaching pitch and a sense of rhythm. The Choir Lounge is open to parents during this time; parents are also welcome to attend ABC Choir with their child. For more information please contact Matt Gerhardt.
The 9:00 a.m. Children's Chapel is offered each Sunday there is Sunday School. When there Baptisms are scheduled, children are invited to the font during the baptism to get a close-up view of this sacrament in lieu of Children's Chapel. Children will learn follow a similar liturgy that is used in all Episcopal worship: the Word, Prayers, Hymns and Peace, simply (prepared for their attention and abilities. Children will rejoin their parent at the Peace.
