Children

Children in Worship: Kids are always welcome in worship, especially for their unique energy and genuine love of life! We offer a children’s sermon, a children’s bulletin, and a coloring materials to better engage our youngest ones. In addition, we also have a staffed nursery for our wiggliest worshipers whenever you need it.

Sunday School really is cool! Sunday school is in session from now until May! We offer classes for 3 year olds through the 5th grade. Classes run from 10:15-11:15. Grades are separated to best meet interest and education levels, and the classes are taught by our own church members! The children enter the larger sanctuary during Holy Communion for a blessing and are picked up by parents after the service. Contact Julie Slifka for more information.

First Communion
We celebrate First Communion starting in 3rd grade (or older). Holy Communion is a physical sign of God’s love for all believers, even our elementary aged children. We believe our nine year-olds can experience the Good News of Jesus in their personal lives through this sacrament. We teach First Communion theology and lessons in our Sunday School education; these classes specifically will run in January and February 2018 during the Sunday School hour. Since Holy Communion is an important part of worship, families need to be attending worship regularly before beginning classes. Contact Pastor Trudy for more information.

Club 345 
The best club in town! Our Wednesday night small groups and game times for our 3-5 graders. Runs every Wednesday beginning in October, with an optional dinner each week. Contact Julie Slifka for more information.
