Our various adult Spiritual Formation programs offer multiple ways to connect with the COS community while growing in the love and knowledge of God and reconnecting with the Peace That Passes All Understanding.
Church of Our Saviour offers a variety of contemplative programs, all falling under the direction and support of the rector, wardens, and vestry of Church of Our Saviour. These programs are open to all interested in expanding their contemplative life, and are regularly offered by clergy and lay leaders, as well as outside groups and speakers.
CHILDREN + YOUTH
Youth & Family Ministry at the Church of Our Saviour welcomes all youth to be an integrated part of our worshipping community and to grow in faith.
The best way to reach a child is to tell a story. Each Sunday during Children’s Chapel, kids experience the life-changing power of worship and story. We’ve designed our kid environments to be safe, fun, and filled with age-appropriate learning tools. Childcare is offered during services as well.
(6th - 12th grade)
COS Youth Group is a place where students of all different backgrounds come together to hang out, have fun, and grow closer to one another, the community, and God. We are committed to walking alongside our youth as they experience the fullness of God’s love, transformation, goodness, mercy, and hope.
A CHILD'S GARDEN SCHOOL
Developmentally oriented, nestled among beautiful gardens, and staffed with talented and imaginative teachers, A Child’s Garden School (ACGS) is a place of wonder and exploration for every child. This five-day, accredited preschool offers a rich environment where each child can grow and develop at their own pace. At the same time, ACGS exposes the children to God’s word through chapel time and continually setting the example that God s Love. The school is certified by the National Association of Episcopal Schools.

We meet for a luncheon once a month with a speaker and/or entertainment. *This group is currently on hold due to the pandemic.
