A family art/play area can be found to the right side of the sanctuary, for wiggly, squiggly kids and adults who worship better while doing creative things.
Following the Children's Moment, children are invited to go to the Preschool Suite for Children's Church, a learning, fun time of Bible stories, crafts, and play.
Godly Play is coming soon! A sacred space is being created, teachers are training, supplies are being gathered.
Where do you come in? Contact the church office if you would like to be a greeter, financial donor, assistance, or train to be a leader.
The children of our church receive different Bibles as they grow and mature in their faith. Beginning with the Hug-a-Bible for newborns, then the Spark Story Bible for toddlers, 3rd graders move up to the Spark Bible (NRSV), which includes stickers, trivia, and questions to help kids think about their faith. High School graduates receive a study Bible to assist them in their life-long faith journeys.
