St. Matthew’s provides a variety of ongoing spiritual and social programming for our children. Our programming includes a Sunday School and Vacation Bible School.  Sunday School begins at 10:15 a.m. with bell choir practice and lessons at 10:30 a.m.  Sunday School is held September through May in Mathes Hall.  The children rejoin the congregation for worship and the Eucharist about 11:05 a.m.  Children are encouraged to actively participate by asking questions and engaging in discussions. Special craft projects are made in class throughout the year.  The lessons are planned using the Episcopal Children’s Curriculum.  Special days are offered for the children in the form of a bell choir and a Christmas pageant. The Children’s Bell Choir performs during the 10:30 a.m. service several times a year.   All children are encouraged to take part by participating in the Christmas pageant.  Older children are also asked to read the lessons during the Christmas Pageant.

Vacation Bible School is an exciting four day program for children ages 3 through 10. VBS is usually held during the second week of June.  Our Vacation Bible School coordinator is Teresa Whitt who may be reached at info@stmattswv.org or (304) 343-3837.
