Children are always welcome to join in worship throughout the Sunday service. Since we are a family-friendly church, our service features a children's message, as well as nursery care and church school. Infant and toddler nursery care is provided down the inside stairs to the right of the front entrance in the nursery beyond the church lounge. It is staffed by trained caretakers. Children 5+ can stay with their families in church until after the children's message when they are escorted (or you may feel free to accompany them and return to worship) by the church school staff to their classrooms. After worship, you can collect your children in the Nursery and in the Fellowship Hall during coffee hour.
Led by Janet Cassidy, our teachers offer engaging and enriching lessons full of activities, crafts, games, discussions, and the occasional fun video. 7th Graders are encouraged and empowered to take on leadership roles if they feel comfortable as well! Our current curriculum is provided by DIG IN, and caters to multiple different learning styles, holding children's attention all while building relationships and deepening faith formation. In 2018, we are "Digging Into the Life of Jesus," which leads kids in walking in Jesus' footsteps from his birth to his resurrection and ascension. Kids don't just learn about the historical Jesus; they get to know him personally. They'll discover that Jesus is a real person-a real friend-who makes a difference in their lives today.
