Register for Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Faith Building

For children ages 3 years through 4th grade

Beginning Sunday, September 11 through May 21

Children start the morning in worship with their families and leave for Faith Building following the Word for Children. On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of the month) we will start both worship services with children meeting in the Chapel.

Communion Sundays

Held on the first Sunday each month, beginning Sunday, October 2 through May 6.

At both worship services, children start the morning in the Chapel, where each month we will explore an element of worship.  From Communion to Confession to Passing the Peace to Baptism and Hymns, each month we will learn about the different parts of worship.

  • Children will return to the Sanctuary during the "Gathering Song" and join their families and participate in Communion.

Sunday Faith Building

Held on the  2nd through 5th Sunday each month, beginning Sunday, September 11 through May 21.

At 9 a.m., children start the morning in worship with their families; following the Word for Children, they will head to their classrooms on the 2nd floor for a time of Bible lessons and exploration using our new Spark curriculum.

At 10:30 a.m., children start the morning in worship with their families; following the Word for Children, they will walk to one classroom for Children's Church.

  • We ask that parents and caregivers pick up their children in their classrooms following worship.

Nursery

Beginning September 11th, nursery care is offered Sunday mornings for our youngest children.
