Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Sunday Mornings

Education 9:15 a.m.-10:15 a.m.

The Children's Education hour includes home rooms with the same set of teachers all year.  For birth to 3, there is a nursery with qualified and nurturing attendants. Education levels begin with 3 yrs and run through 5th grade. There is a large group opening each week where we sing, give offering, celebrate birthdays and pray before breaking out into classrooms.

 Registration is required for Sunday School.

Worship 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

We believe that having small children and infants in worship is like having children at the dinner table. They are here because they are part of the family, not because their manners are perfect. They learn how to worship by doing. So please, welcome the wiggle!

Activity bags for children are located at both entrances and if you feel a need to step out for a moment, try the gathering space or the nursery, both of which have a TV monitor of the worship service.

Children giggle, poke, swing their legs and talk at inappropriate moments simply because they are children. They also sing, pray and give with us as children of God. Over time, by being in worship, they learn that:
  • This is the place we gather with others to worship God
  • The sights and sounds of this place are good and nurturing, even when they don't understand them
  • They belong to this family and are welcome at the table
  • Something is expected of them in this place as they give their attention in song, prayer and offering.

You would be surprised at what children learn simply by osmosis. And, the payoff for the wiggling in worship in the early years is that children grow to know they belong here and will develop a faith of their own.
