We may worship at different services and participate in different ministries, but the people of St. Alban’s thrive on gathering as a community. We find many opportunities to celebrate our relationships as God’s people. In building relationships with one another we more fully live into our Baptismal Covenant to, "continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship." (Book of Common Prayer, page 304)
Children at St. Alban's learn and grow together in love. Our youngest begin in Children's Chapel during the 9:00 a.m. service. Beginning at age 2 1/2, children through 5th grade attend church school classes after the 9:00 service. Children make life-long friends as they build a strong foundation for their faith. Learn more.
Youth at St. Alban's, from 6th through 12th grade, worship together in their own teen service at 9:00 a.m. and then break into groups for the "Journey to Adulthood" church school curriculum.
