Children

We are delighted to welcome your children into our church family! 


We believe church and home must work together to nurture children in Christian growth, and we invite you to become an active participant in helping all of our children become faithful servants of God. 


Our goal is to help each child develop a relationship with God that serves as a firm foundation for life. We strive to achieve this by sharing with them ourselves, our stories and the traditions of our Christian faith. 


We share these gifts with your children not only through Godly Play in Sunday School, but also in Sunday morning worship, where a special children's time and children's bulletin help explain worship and relate the message in terms they can understand. 


Our renowned Children's Music Ministry shares a love for making joyful noise to the Lord thru weekly rehearsals, periodic opportunities to sing in worship, and twice annual children's musicals.

Visitor Information

Worship

We believe that children are important participants in our worship and invite them to attend one of their worship experiences with their parents. We offer a special bulletin that can help teach them about worship from their perspective and we offer a children’s time to help relate the message to their lives.


Childcare

Childcare for all children is available during Sunday worship and Sunday school. A dedicated staff of paid care givers provide this care every week.


Sunday School

Classes with experienced, loving and nurturing teaching teams are offered for age 2 to grade 6. We meet during the Sunday school hour between 9:30am and 10:30am on the second floor. Through the Sunday school experience, we hope that each child will come away from each session with a knowledge that God loves them, and that they are children of God.

We believe children are an important part of worship and encourage them to attend one of our services with their parents each Sunday morning. "Pew Pals" are available at each Sanctuary entrance to help children understand worship from their perspective. The Traditional Worship service at 10:50am includes a "Children's Time" to help relate the message to their young lives.

Our goal each Sunday is to help children understand they are children of God, who loves them. 


Classes are available at 9:30am (between worship services) for children age 2 through 6th grade, led by teams of experienced, loving, nurturing teachers trained in the Godly Play curriculum. Using Montessori principles, Godly Play helps children to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play.
