Sunday School

Sunday school meets throughout the school year using developmentally appropriate curriculum for preschool through middle school.

We believe that each child and youth comes to us with different experiences and at different and unique places in their spiritual journeys.   Our aim is to help children and youth become familiar with the Bible and its impact on their lives in today’s world.

Sunday School classes follow the school calendar and are provided for all age levels.

Childcare

Infant-Toddler childcare is available in our nursery for babies ages 0-2 during the 9am education hour and during worship. Childcare is available in the Sun Room for our preschoolers and kindergarteners (ages 3-5 years old) during worship.

Summer Childcare

Throughout the summer, childcare will be offered for children ages 0-6 years old during our 10 a.m. worship service. Parents, if you are interested in attending a 9 a.m. education session but require childcare to do so, please contact Gretchen at least 3 to 4 days in advance and individual 9 a.m. childcare can be arranged as needed.

Children in Worship

Children ages 6 years and older are invited and encouraged to attend worship services with their parents. Clipboards with activities related to the scripture are available in the Narthex. There are regular opportunities for children to be involved in worship as candle lighters, liturgists, and musicians and special Children’s Moments are presented monthly.

Baptism

Baptism is a sacrament by which a person is initiated into the Church and into its faith, life, and hope. During worship, promises are made by the person being baptized, or their parents, and promises are made by the people of the church.  The promises are about loving God and following Jesus, and helping each other do that.  Water is put on the forehead of the person being baptized.  Baptism is available to persons of all ages.

If you are interested in baptism, please contact the church office or one of the ministers.
