Our hope is that Christian Formation for kids is not simply a collection of additional activities for already busy kids. Rather we see our program as vital spiritual nourishment for all our kids are doing and all that they are becoming.


Sunday Children’s Formation

During the school year, Children’s Formation is split into Chapel/Godly Play (during the 9:30 a.m. service) and Sunday School (10:45-11:50 a.m.).

The Chapel and Godly Play programs provide our youngest children (K4-3rd grade) an opportunity to explore the Bible imaginatively and learn about the purpose and rhythm of worship in the Episcopal Church.

Following the 9:30 service, we offer Sunday school classes for K-5th grade. We primarily use the Weaving God’s Promises, which combines Scripture-based lessons with the development of a mature and robust faith.

Thank you to our wonderful teachers & volunteers:

K4-K5 Godly Play: Barbara Larkin, Parent volunteers: Jean Bieszk, Robert Bardunias, Sarah Pitsoulakis, Joan King, Mike Giesecke, and Jen Willems

Chapel (1st-3rd): Susan Lovern, Drew Harmon, Sarah Streed, Anneliese Morell, Nicole Boemer, Lindsay Gardner, Jane Tomasi, Sarah Hatch, and Dan Brindley

Sunday School: Anneliese MorellAnna HarmonPam Eversfield, Susan Cushman & Sandy Johansen

*Please note: We are always in need of assistants to be present in classrooms and help make our Children’s Formation a safe and nurturing learning environment. Please contact Anna Harmon, Children’s Ministries Coordinator at anna@christchurchwfb.org for questions and/or to volunteer your time! Thanks!
