MINISTRY WITH CHILDREN
Faith Connection for Preschool Children
A newly formatted education class for our preschool children that meets during the 11:00 am worship service. The preschool children will begin their time in the worship service with their family. Following the children’s sermon, they will be invited to join their teachers for a Bible lesson that will include age appropriate activities. Their class will meet through the conclusion of worship.
Faith Connection for Elementary Children
Our new Faith Connection program for our elementary age children takes place on as an afterschool program on Tuesdays. This allows us two hours with our children to build relationships and develop their faith. This program includes some free play time, a snack, Bible study with age appropriate activities, and worship education. To assist families in participating in this ministry opportunity, we provide transportation from school to the church. Each Tuesday the program begins with the completion of the school day and concludes at 5:30pm.
Worship for Elementary Children
We are excited to expand our worship opportunities for our elementary age children at the 9am worship service. In addition to a a children’s sermon, we also offer an opportunity for our 2nd graders through 5th graders to acolyte and for those parents/children who are interested we will also provide them with the opportunity to usher. Additionally, during our Tuesday afternoon program, the children will begin to learn about our worship service and why we do the things that we do. On certain occasions, the children will help write and lead certain portions of the worship service. This will be a great way for our children to not only learn about our worship service but to also engage in worship.
Beginning September 10, our 2nd through 5th grade students will have the opportunity to be part of worship as an acolyte during the 9am worship service. If you are interested in having your child participate, please contact Kris Adler-Brammer in the church office.
The Pray Ground is an area in the front corner of our sanctuary specifically set aside for young children during our worship services. It consists of a rug, small table, coloring sheets, crayons, blocks, books and soft toys. We invite those bringing small children to worship to sit with their families in the chairs, pews, or on the rug with our youngest worshippers.
