We welcome children and families to St. Stephen’s! Our children’s program is small but mighty, and we’ll learn your child’s name immediately. Below you’ll find information about our programs and links to recent posts. You can also find weekly information by joining our FlockNote group: https://ststephenscolumbus.flocknote.com/youth

Children’s Church

Children’s Church: From September through May, children in Kindergarten to 5th grade meet for Children’s Church during the Sunday 10:30 a.m. service. Children take turns each Sunday in the roles of crucifer, acolyte, lector, and intercessor as they hold their own Liturgy of the Word with readings, songs, homilies, and activities that are appropriate to their age. They return to the Sanctuary for the Liturgy of the Table (Communion).

The Nursery is open from 10:15 AM through the end of the 10:30 service and is staffed by trained childcare professionals. Children 5 and under can play in this space while their parents attend worship. Children can join their parents for communion time or remain in the nursery.

Youth Group

Youth Group: We have a combined youth group (6th grade and up) with Saint John’s, Worthington. Our Youth Group meets every other Sunday at St. Stephen’s and then at St. John’s on the other Sundays in between. Youth Group includes time for everyone to share about their week, a lesson, and a game! If you have a teen interested in participating in Youth Group, please contact Darien McCoy at: darienmccoy@gmail.com
