Children are the lifeblood of the Church. St. Michael's has a very active children and young adults
education program. The program is based on the idea that a person must not only learn about the
Gospel and Jesus but also have the opportunity to practice and experience it. For example, when
studying about poverty and the poor around us, the children conducted a food drive in the
neighborhood and donated the goods to the local Food Pantry.
The year is organized around a variety of themes that the children and young adults learn and
research about concluding with an activity, like the food drive, related to the topic. In addition to
learning about poverty and the homeless, the children study about the meaning of the word precious
and what is precious to them and how christians worship in different ways.
The children also play an active role in special worship services. Christmas saw the children bring
their precious items to the baby Jesus during the service. Children ages 5-18 are welcome to attend
Sunday mornings at 10:30am in Hannifin Hall located in the basement of the church.
Participants in Sunday School are also treated to fun activities outside of church. Visiting the
American West Museum, a sleep over in the church, and a planned skiing activity are just a few of
the activities that the children of St. Michael's enjoy.
