Children and Youth



Children’s Chapel is offered during the 9:00 AM service for children in Kindergarten through 4th 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 8:50 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! 

What about Pre-K and younger?
Families with children ages 4 and under are welcome to use the softspace at the back of the church.  Parents are also welcome to grab an Activity Bag and take it to their seat during the service.

Children are ALWAYS welcome in worship with their families!

What about 5th grade and up?
Youth are encouraged to attend the church service at 9 AM and can participate in a worship ministry: acolyting, lector, usher, etc. We also have a Middle and High School group that meets every second and fourth Sunday in the Meeting Room for youth in grades 5 through 12.
