Children and Youth Events
The Blessing of Backpack -- Sunday, August 28
Our Annual Blessing of the Backpacks is a treasured way to acknowledge our Summer and welcome in the new school year! This year, save the date for Sunday, August 28th at 10AM worship!
All of our students are encouraged to bring their backpacks—as we pray and sing songs to honor the school year ahead. Afterwards, we will share a cool treat with a do-it-yourself Dairy Queen Sundae Bar!
Sunday School -- Beginning October 2
We invite your children and youth to join us for Sunday School programming for all ages! Each Sunday at the start of worship, follow our SJTL Children & Youth Director for a Bible lesson that is grounded in Godly Play, a hands-on approach of teaching Sunday School Lessons. On any Sunday, children can drop in and learn about God-no Reservation needed! (All ages are welcome; geared especially for ages 4-8).
Younger children, ages 0-4 are encouraged to enjoy Nursery Room activities and play with Mary Hehr, our supervisor who all the kids enjoy!
Middles and Teens are invited to share time once a month with their specialized programs -- Middlers and Sunday Skip.
Trunk or Treat -- Saturday, October 29
Join us for our annual, outdoor Trunk or Treat at St. James the Less on Saturday, October 29 from 10:00 -11:00 a.m. Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and walk down the aisle of cars where we will have car and SUV trunks filled with treats.
After a trip down candy lane, children can color their own pumpkins to bring home with them or enjoy a scavenger hunt.
