Church school meets most Sundays starting at 10 am in one of three age-appropriate classrooms: Godly Play for preschoolers and kindergarteners and two Season of the Spirit classrooms for 1st-3rd graders and 4th-6th graders. Every 3-5 weeks we have a family service instead of church school so children sit in our Episcopal Worship Service with their families or at worship tables with a liturgy-related project. The nursery is still open these Sundays. To know what is happening for children on a particular Sunday, please check the small white board on the church school bulletin board to the left of the restrooms.

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.



Our church nursery is open every Sunday (except Christmas Day Dec. 25th) during the 10 am service for infants and young children 3 ˝ years and under. Visiting families are welcome to use our nursery after filling out a registration form. Two caregivers will care for children and nursery parents are asked to come get their child from the nursery before Communion. Children older than 3 1/2 are welcome in church school or can sit in the worship space with their families.



St. Gabriel’s Community Playgroup is a weekly gathering in our church nursery every Tuesday starting September 13th from 9:00-10:20 am for young children and their parents or caregivers. Children play together while adults socialize and find support. All are welcome, and most children are infant through preschool. Sometimes the group will go on field trips together. If you would like more information or would like to be put on our weekly email list to know what the group is up to, please email playgroup host Bekah at playgroup


Youth group 7th-12th graders sit together with leaders most Sundays at the 10 am service on the purple fleece on the pew behind the acolytes.  The group takes early Communion and goes back to the youth room for a quick discussion and check-in. Some Sundays we will meet in the library during the service for a more in-depth discussion. We have a service project or fun outing at least once a month. Youth group is led by our Youth Minister Rev. Dcn. Marianne Allison and leaders Helen McKee and Jennifer Brandlon. To know what the group is up to on the current Sunday, please check the small white board on the youth bulletin board to the left of the restrooms.
