Children’s Ministry
Youth Ministry

St. Paul’s Children’s and Youth Ministries are working together to serve families. We encourage parents to contact the office with any questions or conversation.

How We’re Staying Connected:

*St. Paul’s Instagram (@stpaulsithaca) – While anyone with an instagram is welcome to follow the account, this medium is geared toward youth. You’ll find conversation starters, weekly Bible verses, and other opportunities for connection.

*Bedtime Stories YouTube Series – Watch and wind down as Kayla shares a bedtime story and goodnight prayer each Sunday evening. These are pre-recorded, so you will be able to start, stop, rewatch as often as you’d like whenever it fits your schedule. Click HERE to see the playlist.

*Christian Culture Videos – Since we’re all at home more than ever, learn easy ways you can bring your faith into your everyday life. Click HERE to watch on our YouTube channel.

*Spotify Playlists – Do you miss music? We do too! So we’re sharing our favorite worship songs/songs that connect us to the Spirit on Spotify and will update with suggestions collected on Instagram. Find staff favorites and more HERE.

*Special Events/Projects – Make sure you’re signed up for the weekly church emails and be on the lookout for updates.

*Email and Phone Contact – The office will continue with email and phone communication with parents and youth. Feel free to contact them directly with any needs.

*Children’s Music Group – Interested in learning the ukulele? Join Music and Magic! For more information, contact
