What Is the Right Fit?

Children learn about faith and church through experiencing them. We welcome children in worship and church mission and fellowship. We also provide age-appropriate classes on Sunday mornings. Take a look and find the right spot based on age and interest.

Youngest Children

Those not in nursery are guided through art projects at the back of the sanctuary during the church service with a friendly church member helping them. On second and fourth Sundays we have a well-oganized "Godly Play" class for children age 3 through first grade.

One-Room Classroom

Second through sixth graders meet on the first floor after the children's story at worship. This class draws from various curriculum to give this age more structured approach to learning about our faith and its traditions. Teachers complement storytelling with service projects, art and drama and other ways to experience our faith. Recent activities include making a meal for the people staying at nearby emergency shelter, making gratitude notebook, and acting out Cross the Jericho.

Youth Program

Youth seventh to 12th grade are invited to an integrated youth program that includes regular Sunday morning sessions before church in addition to evening and weekend activities led by our youth and children's minister. Confirmation class meeting at a separate time is regularly offered.. Youth attend the worship service along with the adults and participate in all ways including reading, passing the offering baskets, passing the peace, and offering prayers.  In April, they designed and led a worship service.

Child Care

Child care is provided during adult ed and worship for children through age 5. Our paid child care staff provide a loving and consistent atmosphere for our youngest church-goers. The Nursery is staffed from 9:45 a.m. to 1:00 pm every Sunday morning. The indoor space for this age group is located at the back of the social hall. We also have a lovely outdoor playground where children enjoy playing in fair weather.
