Teach Sunday School

Sunday Morning Faith Building

For children ages 3 years through 4th grade

September 10 through May 19

Children start the morning in worship with their families and leave for Faith Building in the upstairs classrooms following the Blessing of the Children for a time of Bible lessons and exploration. On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of the month) we will be meeting in the Chapel. We will join our families in worship for Communion.

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

Communion Sundays

Held on the first Sunday each month, beginning Sunday, October 1 through May 5.

The children will start in worship in the Sanctuary and go to Sunday School in the upstairs classrooms after the Word for Children. 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.

Nursery

Professional, loving childcare is available every Sunday morning. The nursery, located on the 2nd floor, is open 15 minutes before worship begins and is for infants and toddlers up to 36 months old.

The nursery is a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate space for children to begin experiencing God’s love through the care of our church family.

Parents are invited to leave a mobile phone number with our caregivers so they can be notified if their children need them. Please note that we do not provide snacks.

Teach Sunday School

We are always looking for new volunteers to help teach and assist during Sunday school. No previous experience required, and training is provided. Sign up to let us know you're interested!
