An interactive, simple class for our youngest children.
A fully staffed nursery is available for children up to age 2 during the hour of prayer/solitude at 9AM each Sunday, the 10AM worship service, and the 11AM class time. During class time, these children transition to “Seeds.” Each week, parents will find “Seeds” a safe and welcoming place for their children. Fully capable teachers guide the young ones in age-appropriate play, song, and art. The name “Seeds” represents the planting of the Word of God deep within a person at an early age.
A purposeful and inclusive space for Pre-K to 5th graders.
During the 10AM worship service on Sundays, children 3 years old through 5th grade move to the “Roots Table.” Just before the sermon, an adult leader guides the children to this table, situated along a side wall in the auditorium. From there, children participate in age appropriate activities while remaining present with the rest of the congregation. They return to their seats as the bread and cup are being served for Communion (and many kids will voluntarily serve the bread and cup to the rest of the community!).
Elementary kids learn the love of God and love for neighbor.
The Pre-K to 1st grade class focuses on the love of God and his son, Jesus, as well as stories of the Bible through song, storytelling, and hands-on activities. The class includes time in the “Worship Room,” where the children can experientially interact and “practice” sharing communion, leading singing, preach, read, play instruments, etc.
Upper elementary students enjoy their classes during the 11AM hour as well. Through participatory activities, our aim is to connect the children to God’s love for and work in the world. The Elementary class guides children through the Bible on a 3-year rotation. Martha Watson and Stephanie Watson lead this class.
