Two worship services at 8:30 am and 11:00 am with Sunday School classes offered for all ages during the hour in-between. We offer children’s take-home worship bags during both services with puzzles, coloring activities, and stickers to keep their hands busy as they listen and participate in worship.
WOW Children’s Worship
Worship Our Way is a Montessori-style children’s worship offered during the 10 o’clock service (11 o’clock service September through May). Children ages 3 (potty-trained) through 5th grade begin worshipping in the sanctuary with their families, and then are called forward to join Miss Jen and Miss Sarah for WOW. During WOW children continue to worship in a child-friendly way hearing a Bible story, responding and talking about it, singing, and praying. We do our best to end around the same time as the service in the sanctuary, but may be finishing when parents arrive. Parents are asked to wait in the hallway, and we will dismiss children by family as soon as we finish our worship time together!
Sunday School classes offer a time for children, youth, and adults to dive deeper into exploring the Bible stories and learning Christian practices. Our children’s and youth classes are offered by age group: Pre-K and Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grades, 3rd & 4th grades, 5th to 8th grades, and 9th to 12th grades. Sunday School meets each week from 9:40 – 10:40 am. We are still looking for additional volunteers to join our Sunday School teaching teams! We teach in teams of 3 so that leaders can rotate who facilitates the class and so we can cover the class when teachers are out of town or out sick. If you are interested in joining a teaching team, please let me know!
NEW! This Fall we will begin a monthly Sunday Fellowship Group for 4th and 5th graders. Once a month we will gather from 4-5 pm for recreation, mission projects, and fun to build our church friendships and learn more about actively following Jesus as disciples and living out our faith. Friends are welcome! Parent volunteers are welcome! Alight will meet on the following dates: November 20 – January 22, February 26, March 26, April 23
We have many all-church events – new and well-loved – planned for this year for fellowship, seasonal experiences, helping others, and growing our faith. Watch the Friday e-blast and the Children’s and Youth Ministry Weekly for details on those events for your whole family to connect, learn, grow, and share God’s love this year!
