“Kid, you'll move mountains.” -Dr. Seuss
Sunday School for ages 4 through 10
Children's Sunday School begins after the children's chat portion of our service. The children go to our Sunday school room and participate in a Godly Play lesson.
What is Godly Play? Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond.
Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance.
Godly Play has a Montessori foundation with 40+ years of research and practice.
Godly Play values process, openness, discovery, community and relationships.
Godly Play models the worship life, stories, symbols and rituals of Christian congregations.
Godly Play allows practitioners to make relevant and personal theological meaning.
Godly Play nurtures participants to larger dimensions of belief and faith through wondering and play.
After our lesson, the children return to the worship service so they may take part in communion. Come join us!
Our weekly service at 10:30 am needs lots of help from kids. We have a youngster light the candles at the beginning of service, another reads the Psalm before the sermon and they all come up to the front for Children's Chat - a talk run by one adult discussing the topics of the day.
Our Youth Group (grades 5 and up) meets during worship service after the children's chat to discuss issues important to them including inclusion, Christianity, politics and community service.
The group also meets once a month outside of the church hour for fun and fellowship. Check our This Week link or our latest newsletter for specific dates or check our calendar here.
