Summer church school meets Sundays in June and August starting at 10 am. We provide one classroom with a Seasons of the Spirit lesson for children preschool-3rd grade with children 4th grade and up invited to help in the classroom or they can sit in worship with their families. Every Sunday there is a staffed nursery for children infant- age 3 1/2 years. In July church school is on vacation and children are welcome to sit with their families or at tables offering quiet response activities set up within the worship space.

If you are visiting or new to St. Gabriel's, your child is welcome in church school! Please ask a greeter or usher where to go and a teacher will greet and guide you. Children will be brought by teachers into the worship space in time to take Communion with their families, while nursery parents are asked to come get their child from the nursery before Communion.
Our church nursery is open every Sunday during the 10 am service for children 3 ˝ years and under.


Children and their parents are invited to Wonder Wednesday Storytime and connected art project. This community and literacy activity is offered on summer Wednesdays June 22nd to August 24th from 10:45-11:45 am at St. Gabriel in the sanctuary or on the labyrinth patio. No registration is necessary- children and their parents or caregivers are welcome to drop in for this free activity. Although the books and art projects are chosen for children preschool-3rd grade, younger and older children are welcome too. Youth are needed as project helpers from 10:30-noon- please see the sign up on the youth bulletin board. Invite friends and neighbors- all are welcome!

St. Gabriel’s community playgroup for young children and their parents or caregivers will be meeting at Wonder Wednesdays during the summer. Playgroup will resume its Tuesday meetings in mid-September


Youth group takes the summer months off except for Mission Trip planning and volunteer opportunities. During the summer youth are welcome to serve as acolytes, volunteer as group leaders for VBS, assist with Wonder Wednesday (see above), help in church school or sit in service with their family or friends.
