During worship, we provide professional nursery care for children up to age 4. Here, we support the life-long growth of faith in a safe, nurturing and loving environment.
Please join me this Sunday for Welcome Back Sunday, the kickoff of our new Sunday School Program, and a big party with food and bounce house on the lawn after church. I can’t wait!
In case you missed it: we will have FOUR rooms open for Sunday school this year!
The Nursery will be open as always for our littlest members of our family. Ages 0-Preschool are invited to start in the nursery before church, or come in any time during church if they would rather start in the service.
Kids in Kindergarten and up are invited to join us in worship to start, and then we will go together to classrooms after the children’s message.
Curious Kids is our program for Kindergarten – 1st Grade. These kiddos are invited to start in church with the congregation. We will have a short craft or sensory play relating to the weekly bible story, and then we’ll have free play. This program is designed to get kids started engaging with the stories of our tradition, while still giving lots of space for imaginative play and just being little.
Grades 2-4 are invited to join us for Faith Formers. Stories, games, and crafts will help us engage with themes from the weekly bible story. We will deepen our understanding of God’s unconditional love and practice being in community together, hopefully with lots of laughs along the way.
The Youth Table is our program for 5th graders through 8th graders. This conversation and fellowhip based group will be led by the big questions our kids have. Each week we’ll explore a current event, pop culture moment, or a youth-submitted question, and we’ll figure out what stories from our faith give us the wisdom to face it.
I know that each young person is different and may move through faith formation at different stages, not necessarily mapped onto school grades. I encourage you to talk with your kids about what environment feels most comfortable, and remember I’m always here to chat if you need!
Baptism is available to children and adults of all ages. Baptism is a sign of God’s unconditional love and the mark of entry into Christ’s church. Baptisms are scheduled as part of Sunday morning worship services. Whether you are a longtime member of our church, or have never been here before, we would be honored to celebrate God’s love for you or your child. To discuss a baptism please contact our pastor.
