A new look on Sunday mornings!
We are going to try on something new for Sunday morning Christian Formation for children beginning on September 25th: Children’s Chapel. There will not be a Sunday School hour after worship.
Children’s Chapel will be offered during the 10:00 AM service for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. This is an opportunity for children to hear scripture at their level and enjoy an activity that compliments the story. Leaders will be ready to receive children in the classrooms beginning at 9:50 AM. During the offertory, when the monetary collection and gifts of bread and wine are brought to the altar, the children will process in and gather around the altar. Parents may join children if needed. Every child and youth is invited to join the procession and gather at the altar at this time, too!
Missy Greene and Angie Jeffery will lead our Children’s Chapel. Multi-generational and seasonal programs, like Advent Wreaths, will continue to take place during the year.
What about Pre-K and younger?
Children are invited to use the nursery. The softspace will continue to be available during worship for families with children 3 and younger.
We are looking for a Nursery Care Giver for Sunday mornings. This is a paid position. Candidate must be over 18 years old. Please talk to Missy for more information or if you know someone who can fill this role.
Children are ALWAYS welcome in worship with their families!
What about 6th grade and up?
Youth are expected to be present in worship. We also encourage them to participate in a worship minstry: acolyting, lector, usher, etc. Christian Formation for youth will take place at The Vine. Also new this year, a group for parents will take place at the same time as The Vine. You can find more information about this exciting ministry on our website.
We hope to see you on September 25th as we begin this new ministry! If you have any questions, please contact Missy Greene at the church office (474.5490) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org
