Children's Ministry

We partner with parents to bring children to know Jesus, a Savior who wants to

love and bless them throughout their lives.

School Age Children

Children's Church with Godly Play

Sunday Mornings, 9 am and 10:45 am
located on the first floor in room 202

Children kindergarten age to 3rd grade are invited to attend.  
4th grade and older remain in the service with their families.

Parents, escort your child to the doorway.  They will be greeted by our doorkeeper and then enter our Godly Play learning space.  During this service, we use Godly Play materials and stories.  Children will hear old testament stories, new testament stories, stories of Advent, Lent, and other liturgical stories.  We use handmade wooden materials to tell these stories through a Montessori approach.  The storyteller leads the class through wonderings.  Each week, the class will either respond to the story through art and action.  On the first Sunday of the month, we will celebrate a feast together.
Children will be escorted into the sanctuary for communion after the Prayer of the People have concluded.

4th, 5th, 6th Grade Sunday School
Sunday Mornings, 10:45 am
upstairs room 205

4th-6th grade: This intention for this upper elementary class is for children to know God personally and in the context of their community and world.  Instead of a set or purchased curriculum, we explore worship through liturgy.  We use thematic units based on scripture that builds on itself.  Our time is sacred and driven by the children's thoughts, questions, wonderings, and personal stories.

Age Specific Activtiies

Acolytes

Our Acolyte Ministry is for ages 4th grade through seniors in high school.  An acolyte can assist in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or "torches", assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, handing the offering plates to ushers, and many other tasks as seen fit by the priest.  Acolyte training is a ministry which introduces the children and youth to a knowledge of the acts and rituals of worship and their meaning. Participating in every syllable of the service is of major importance in training our children and youth to worship, and when children help lead the service, we all come to know more deeply that our liturgy is truly the work of all the people.  Contact Mary Cady for more information.
