Birth to 6th Grade
Our staff and volunteers offer themselves as partners with you in the spiritual development of your children. Our emphasis is on learning, worship and service in an environment where children feel safe and loved.
We offer nursery care for babies and toddlers up to age 3, and three classrooms serving preschool and elementary-aged children. Each Sunday School classroom is led by a professional staff member with a wealth of teaching experience and assisted by dedicated volunteers.
When and where are classes held? Classes are held September-June, excepting the first Sunday of each month. Children begin their Sunday morning in worship and then move downstairs to their classrooms. Click here to learn more about our educational philosophy and multi-sensory curriculum, SHINE.
Welcoming All Ages and Abilities in Worship: On the first Sunday of the month, all ages worship together in a communion service designed for every age and all abilities. We invite you to witness the blessings of doing things together, and we welcome your help in making our shared worship a holy experience for everyone. Take a look at the wide variety of worship tools, resources and accommodations that we provide for all to access. Nursery care is available on first Sundays for children ages 5 and under if you wish to use it.
Why Invite Children into Worship? Research shows that participating in intergenerational worship that is accessible to them is one of the best ways to pass on faith values and practices to children – even better than Sunday School. We worship all together once each month to invest in our children and the future of the church, to learn from one another, and to witness the beauty of the whole church together. Jesus said: “Let the children come unto me.”
Junior Choir: Children from elementary grades through high school are welcome to sing in the Junior Choir that meets directly after worship and Sunday School. Click here for more information about our Junior Choir.
