CHILDREN IN WORSHIP
Wiggly babies, loud and energetic toddlers, young-‘uns, and the grown-ups who accompany them are enthusiastically welcomed at all our services.
Our 9am service is an all-ages gathering with a particular focus on participation and welcoming children. At the 8 and 10am services, crayons and a special children’s bulletin are available for children who want to worship with their parents.
Children aged 0 to 3 are welcome in our nursery, which operates every Sunday year-round during our 10am service. Paid and trained nursery workers work alongside volunteers to offer care and community to our youngest parishioners.
Our Children’s Choir serves two aims: providing children with a foundational education in music and singing; and incorporating children into worship in an intentional way. The choir rehearses once a week and leads the congregation in singing at our 10am service once a month. For more information, please contact our Music Director.
COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR KIDS
We believe that each person, child or adult, is called to a life of loving service to others. Help your children to get an early start in learning about need in our community, and have a great time together as a family. Community service opportunities for all ages can be found here.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2017-2018
CLASS HOPE – PreK to Grade 2
Godly Play is a Montessori-based curriculum built on the premise that children want to know God rather than know about God. In the careful telling of stories, and sharing of questions, adults help children develop a language to express what they already know about God. (And in the process, adults learn something, too.)
CLASS FAITH – Grade 3 to Grade 5
The class adapts the Sparkhouse’s Active Faith lectionary curriculum, connecting worship and Sunday School. It is a comprehensive, Bible-based Sunday school curriculum designed for children to journey through the Bible with key stories from the Old and New Testaments.
YOUTH GROUP – Middle and High School
Sunday School for Youth meets in the Youth Room and focuses on integrating scripture and tradition into real life. Ask an usher or greeter for help in finding the Youth Room on your first day. Youth rejoin their families in the church in time for communion.
INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING?
There are endless opportunities for parents and youth to volunteer in our ministry with children. If you are interested and/or have questions, please email our Director of Children’s Ministry, Sandra Pathik.
