The Sycamore Tree (children’s worship)
The Sycamore Tree (Children's Liturgy)
Our children’s worship service has a new look! Check it out! Families lead us in the reading and prayers, while Kristin Pagent and Ken Kimble lift our hearts in song from St. Anne’s sanctuary, and Connie Saeger-Proctor shares a lesson. Now professionally produced by our Sunday morning technology team to amplify our praises to God (yay!) Pray with us this week! Special children’s learning activity sheets are available every Sunday. The Sycamore Tree is premiered at 2:30. Watch Sycamore Tree here. Questions? Contact Connie Saeger-Proctor, Minister for Congregational Life at 443-808-1361 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us and explore the path that God has set for you!
Middle and high school youth may participate in our Youth Ministry Program on the first and third Sunday of the month from 4:00-5:15 PM to discover what it means to be a Christian, enjoy a snack, engage in mission projects, and explore leadership, and God’s call. St. Anne’s multi faceted youth program encourages young people to explore their spirituality (relationship with God, others, and creation) through:
- Mission and outreach
- Fellowship and social activities
- Leadership in the church
- Participation in Diocesan, ecumenical, and National events
- Serve as Junior Counselors for Very Big Story Camp
St. Anne's Youth Confirmation Program
I will, with God’s help is the theme and curriculum of St. Anne’s Youth Confirmation Program for teens between the ages of 15 and 18. Beginning on Sunday, August 16 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM, (following the 5:30 service) we will gather using Zoom and explore our faith and form a deeper understanding of what is means to be a Christian in the Episcopal Church. Due to the current pandemic, we will begin our program with the education component, and will later integrate service projects that reflect living-out the call for Christians to serve the Lord. We do not have a date for Confirmation, but as soon as the Bishop deems it appropriate, we will schedule a date. I hope and pray that it can be during the Easter Season 2021. If you have questions please contact Connie Saeger, Minister for Congregational Life at email@example.com . Below is a syllabus and registration link:
August 16 – I Believe: Living the Creed
August 30 – Teaching, Fellowship, Bread, and Prayers

Feeling the need to connect your children with their St. Anne’s friends? We know we cannot meet in person, so let’s add some fun things for us to do. Go to our website and download a flat Jesus, color him, and cut him out. As you go through your daily activities, take a picture of where you have invited Jesus to be with you. My flat Jesus will be with us in the Sycamore Tree on Sunday at 12:30 PM. Send your pictures to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on our website. If you are cautious about your child’s identity use flat Jesus in a picture without your child and his or her first initial with a description of where Jesus was invited.

Brighten someone’s day by choosing a card to send to a member of St. Anne’s family. Your card will be sent to someone in a nursing home, someone who is home alone or someone who needs to be cheered up. Download the card template here. Once you have created your card, either scan and email them to Connie Saeger-Proctor at email@example.com or mail them to St. Anne’s office at 199 Duke of Gloucester Street, Annapolis, MD 21401.
Children Are a Gift From God
At St. Anne’s we believe that children are a gift from God and we strive to help our children engage in a Christian formation process that is rooted in God’s love, guided by Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Children are supported in their Christian journey and encouraged to explore and experience the mystery of God presence in their lives through:
- Sacred story
- Christian tradition
Children are Vital Members at St. Annes
