Children's Church and Worship

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.!

Children’s Church is offered year-round on Sunday mornings from 10:00 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. Children ages 3 through

2nd grade will learn to share Christ’s love through the vision of worship. A lectionary based curriculum provides children the opportunity to learn and reflect on the same scripture that serves as the foundation for weekend worship, but in a meaningful and age appropriate way. The schedule is as follows:

 

                    10:00-10:15 a.m. Welcome, Announcements, Song, Scripture and Children's Message in sanctuary

                    10:15-10:45 a.m. Theme related Games and Activities in classroom setting

                    10:45 a.m. – Children return to worship in sanctuary

Following is a list of the scriptures the children will be learning:

 

    November 5 Humble and Exalted

    November 12 Ten Bridesmaids

    November 19 Parable of the Talents

    November 26 Sheep and Goats

At 10:45 a.m., the children will return to join their parents for Holy Communion in the sanctuary or can be picked up in Sunday School Rooms 1 or 2. All children 3rd grade and older are encouraged to worship with their families weekly.

 


People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them: and the disciples spoke
sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the little children
come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.”

                                                                                         Mark 10:13-14
