Programs for Children at Christ Church & San Marcos

Christian Formation during 10 A.M. service
(ages and grades in each program are flexible)

Nursery Care

Age one-1st grade: Nursery Care/Stories/Crafts are provided in the undercroft (basement) of the church during the service. Children may remain in this class for the full duration of the service, but parents are welcome to bring their children upstairs for the Eucharist or blessing.

The children in this class enjoy learning about Jesus through storytelling, crafts and play time. It is here where the children develop their first friendships with their church family.

Godly Play

Children in 2nd-5th grade: The class for our Godly Play curriculum is held in the undercroft. Before the service begins, we will meet in the first two pews in the front of the church. The teachers will lead the children downstairs to their class after the first hymn. This class will come upstairs for the Eucharist or blessing each Sunday.

Godly Play is an interactive curriculum that allows children to enter into and experience the stories of the Bible.

Youth Group

6th grade & older. Christian Formation/Youth Group(CF/YG)

  • 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month: CF/YG will participate in the service as acolytes, readers, ushers, Godly Play helpers, etc.
  • 2nd , 4th and 5th Sundays of the month: After the 1st hymn, CF/YG will go down to the teen room (basement of parish hall)  for their YG meeting and return to church for the Eucharist.
The Youth Group works on special projects for Church, community projects and performs as the “First Generation, Christian Formation Players” at church services a few times each year.
