Where Faith Begins

Pathfinders is where it all begins at St. Paul’s! Every Sunday at 10:20 am children age 3 through 4th grade learn about faith and begin their path to a relationship with God. Kids are introduced to Bible stories and explore how those stories fit with our Methodist traditions.

  • Ages 3 and 4 gather in the preschool room for stories, music, and crafts with Christian themes.
  • Kindergarten through 4th graders join together in story and praise for the first half hour and then divide into age-based small groups for activities, reflection, and prayers.
