Children's & Youth Education

Welcome to Children & Youth Education at San Jose Episcopal Church! It is our hope and our prayer that every child that comes to San Jose leaves knowing just how loved and adored they are by God. With programs that start with children as young as 3 years old up to 18 years old, we have education offerings to reach every age.

Sunday School – Our hope is that you will partner with us and encourage your child to attend Sunday School. It is a great way for kids to study in small age appropriate groups and take what they learn back home with them. Sunday school starts every Sunday at 9:30 a.m., with the children's program taking place in the Sunday School room and the youth meeting in the Lodge. 

Wednesday Night Program and Youth Group – A wonderful opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school students to meet once a week at 6:00 on Wednesday nights to eat dinner in the parish center together (bring $5) and then study God's word and his interaction in our world, play games, enjoy music and meet new friends.

Gospel and Grits – Gospel and Grits meets at San Jose Episcopal Day School and is open to all 4th-6th graders. It takes place in the church lounge before school at 7:15 a.m. one Tuesday each month. Participants enjoy delicious grits while learning the ways God works and how to draw closer to Him in our daily lives.
