Children in the Liturgy
God put the wiggle in children; don't feel you have to suppress it in God's house... ALL are welcome in this place!
St. Mary's also provides the hospitality of a staffed nursery and a furnished "Mother's Room" for feeding and changing infants. Audio of the liturgy is provided in both locations. Please see an usher for directions.
Christian Formation Programs
From Labor Day to Memorial Day, St. Mary's offers Christian Formation programs for all ages at 10:30am.
Vacation Bible School
St. Mary's partners with First Presbyterian Church and Gordon Street Christian Church each June to host a Vacation Bible School for children in and near Kinston. Each church hosts the VBS once every three years with members of all three congregations joining together to provide an exciting, Christ-centered, Bible-based experience for the children. Check out the BellRinger as the summer months approach to learn details about the next exciting VBS!
