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 4 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.
SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL
The Sunday School program is part of our 10am service. It is for children from PreK to 5th Grade. For this summer (June 11-Sept. 17), all classes are combined into one class allowing children with multiple ages to learn from each other and work together as a team. The teachers are our own parent volunteers who have dedicated their time and effort to help nurture our children’s faith.
The class meets at 10AM in the Garden Room beside the Youth Room in the Administration building. Class time runs for 45 minutes after which the children together with the youth group will rejoin their families in the church in time for communion. On your first Sunday morning, an usher or greeter can help you and your child find the Sunday School room and get settled. Make sure you fill out the registration form. September 17th is the last Sunday for Summer Sunday School.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2017-2018 starts September 24th
*Registration Day is September 17th during our Welcome Sunday & BBQ
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.)
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.
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.
