Children are an important part of our faith community.
From September – May, our Sunday morning educational experiences for children include: child care for the youngest children (8:45 a.m. – 12 noon), and "Celebrate" (10:45 a.m.). Children begin in our 10:45 a.m. worship with their families and may move to “Celebrate” where they will experience a different Bible story each month through music, art, storytelling and movement. "The Journey", our "tween" Sunday School class is meeting in Room 11 in our sanctuary building, every Sunday during 10:45 worship service. On April 2 Cathie Seifert will be co teaching about reasons for immigrations (then and now) Ezekiel 37:1-14. We will be considering Christian understanding of the cross on Palm Sunday and Easter/resurrection stories after Easter.
During the summer , (May 31 – September 6) our Sunday morning experiences for children include:
Infants through Pre-school age children -- Child care in rooms 7-8 (8:45 a.m. – 12:00 noon)
Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grade children -- Activities from the United Church of Christ resource; “Playing and Living Joyfully”. These sessions include scripture stories, music, games and art.

Faith formation in the family is supported through community worship.
Our 8:45 am worship service provides opportunities for children to experience a more casual worship service. This less formal service offers a brief period of reflection and discussion following the sermon. Communion is served every Sunday. We have an open table and children of all ages are welcome.
Our 10:45 am worship service meets in the Sanctuary with music provided by our chancel choir. Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month. All children begin worship with their families. During the 10:45 am service, children are invited to participate in "Celebrate “ and will be escorted out of worship at the appropriate time.
