Children & Youth

Welcome Laurie Bleickardt as our new Acting Christian Education Coordinator

Dear members and friends of SGC,
 
As many of you know, in January, our Christian Education Coordinator, Jennifer McCleery, spoke of her need to leave this position in order to focus more time on her family, her studies at the Yale Divinity School, and other necessary matters as she pursues her call to ordained ministry.  Jennifer was gracious...

Children's Chapel Prayer

Almighty God our friend and companion,
We praise you for your constant love and guidance.
We admit that we do not always follow your commandments and the lessons Jesus has taught us.
We thank you for our families - brothers, sisters, grandmas and grandpas, and our pets.
We welcome and rejoice the arrival of new members to our families.
We love them and ask that you be with them and bless them.
We need your help because sometimes we do not know what to do
or how to change things once they have gone wrong.  Help us to do our best.
We pray for people everywhere that are in need.
For families who have no homes to sleep in every night or no cars to get to the store or work, for people who are sick and for teenagers and children who need your love.
We pray to you with open hearts.  Amen.

The prayer above was written by the children during a chapel service.
