Children & Youth Ministry


The Nursery is for those 4 years old and younger.

The Nursery opens at 10:15.  Children may join their parents at communion time or stay in the nursery.


AWAKE is the Sunday morning children’s program at St. Stephen’s for ages 4 to 11.

From September through May, we meet during the 10:30 service. The children gather in the church for the opening hymn and a prayer, then head upstairs for the AWAKE adventure.

Every Sunday, we have fun through play, song and hands-on activities.  All this takes places in an environment that honors the questions that the children bring and integrates their growing faith with the progressive Christian theology of St. Stephen’s


AWARE is our Sunday morning program for almost teens and teens, ages 12 and up. 


From September to May, we gather in the church at 10:30 for the opening hymn and a prayer, and then head upstairs. 


We strive to make everyone in our group feel welcomed.  We share our questions, thoughts and feelings.  We explore issues, our’s and other’s.


During the summer months the children of St. Stephen’s learn about art and explore their creative potential in a secular art education program taught by talented and qualified instructors.  MAKE classes take place Sundays during the 10:30 service for 5-6 weeks.
