Children & Youth

growing alongside children and youth in faith

We are called to support families’ formation, worship, and daily lives, and to nurture children’s growing faith through wonder, learning, prayer, and play.

In our Children's and Family Ministry, we serve children from birth through 5th grade and those who support them. We realize how much we need community and offer classes, programs, and outings to foster connections.

Youth Ministry serves students in grades 6-12. Being a teen is tough during the best of times (an argument could be made that these are not the best of times!), so we love to walk alongside and support youts as they move towards adulthood. We meet on site twice weekly during the school year as a community to have fun together and learn more about God. On Wednesday nights we gather for dinner, games, a devotional, and close off the night with compline. On Sunday mornings, we gather to encounter Scripture in new and exciting ways, bringing all our questions, ideas, and ponderings about who God is and where we belong in the world.

Sunday Morning

Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

Wednesdays, 5:30-7 p.m. High school and middle school students eat dinner at Café Divine together in Sumners Hall. Need dinner? Contact  . After dinner, we head to the youth room for check-ins, devotionals, games, and fellowship. 


“I like the sense of community in youth group. It is a very accepting space. Also the macaroni and cheese. And winning at Happy Salmon.”

“The culture is more open than other churches. I come because my friends are here.”

“I love the fun-loving and accepting community at St. David’s youth group! We can all come together over our differences.” 

“I love having a space to talk about my life and opinions judgment-free. Getting to interact with like-minded people my age every week makes life less stressful. I’ve made so many friends here and they’re endlessly entertaining.”
