The goal of the Children's Ministry is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ. Children are helped to build a foundation for a lifetime of faith.
We love having children be a part of worship. We believe that the experience for children to worship with their families and with the rest of the congregation is an instrumental part of their faith journey.
Online services include a Children's Time.
Godly Play, Sundays, 9:30 AM, Zoom
Children experience the mystery of God in story and activity. In the summer children of all ages are invited to Godly Play. During the school year, Godly Play is for children ages 3-1st grade.
Bible Explorers (ages 3-5th grade)
The Bible Explorers gather on Zoom at 10:50 AM during the school year. In Bible Explorers, students explore the sweeping story of God and God's people as revealed in the Bible. They learn the story of God's love in Scripture through the same stories that they hear in worship. Contact Pastor Beth for a Zoom invite.
Professional care is provided for children two years & younger when worship happens in-person.
