Children are an integral part of our community of faith, enriching worship for all of us. At All Saints Dallas we enjoy, nurture and include children as a part of our fellowship.
We believe that worshiping as a family is an essential element in teaching children to know and follow Christ. Why? Because children learn by participating! Seeing their parents worship and hearing the Gospel communicated every week through the Eucharist is powerfully formative.
We take seriously Jesus' admonition that the kingdom belongs to those that are like little children (Matt 19:14, Mark 10:14, Luke 18:16). Children's participation in the service is a reminder to them, and to all of us, that children are equal members of the Kingdom of God.
We have Nursery, Toddler, and Pre-School (through Kindergarten) childcare where you may bring your child any time prior to or during the service. If you desire, you can pick them up to join you for Communion. School aged children who accompany their parents for the service will be dismissed after the Collect for their own developmentally appropriate curriculum and then return during The Peace in time to participate in Holy Communion with their family.
Our classes are as follows:
• Nursery | newborn – 1 yr
• Walkers | 12 - 24 months
• Toddlers | 2's and 3's
• Pre-School | 3's – Kindergarten
Younger Elementary grades 1 - 3
