Family Ministries

Children are welcome at all parish events, including worship as well as programs geared toward their spiritual nurture and development.

Our offerings for children and families run from mid-September through mid-June. 

In light of COVID-19, we have moved all offerings for children and families online.

Children’s Chapel

This offering takes place on Zoom each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. for our younger members and their families. We are utilizing a new curriculum called Storymakers NYC, and this 30 minute chapel gathering is informal, informative and fun-filled. Our aim is to help families with younger children to wake up on the Sabbath with joy and expectation for the day ahead. Click here for our Children’s Chapel service bulletin.

Middle School Youth Group

Our middle schoolers meet on Zoom on Sunday afternoons from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. We use the Echo the Story curriculum – an innovative program that enlightens and enlivens the biblical narrative and its historical roots.

High School Youth Group

We have monthly opportunities for Incarnation high schoolers to gather for fellowship, service and learning. High schoolers are currently gathering on Zoom.

Christian Parenting Group

The Christian Parenting Group meets monthly on Wednesday mornings via Zoom for fellowship and spiritual formation.

Parenthood is a constant spiritual journey and one we should never walk alone.


Contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser to learn more and get involved in our Family Ministries programs.

And just so you know what we hope to resume in time…

Sunday Mornings (in non-COVID times)

  • On Sundays at 10:00 am, middle schoolers meet in the Parish House for their Sunday School program, Echo the Story.
  • During the Sunday 11:00 am service, children ages 3 to 10 are invited to Sunday School for Godly Play – a Montessori-based method of Biblical storytelling that allows children to wonder about the stories and respond to them with play or art. See our YouTube channel for various Godly Play lessons recorded by one of our Sunday School teachers!
  • From 10:45 am to 12:45 pm, the nursery is available for younger children and is supervised by a professional attendant. During the summer Sunday-School hiatus, children of all ages are welcome in the nursery.
  • Acolyting. Children 10 and older are invited to serve as Acolytes during the 11:00 am service on a rotating basis.

Family Fridays (in non-COVID times)

Every other month, parents and children of all ages are invited to the Parish House for a pizza dinner, family-friendly service project, and group activity. Past activities have included bingo, movie nights, dance parties, games in the Assembly Hall, and a scavenger hunt in the church.
