Children's Ministries

Children’s Area

Children are welcome in our sanctuary during worship. A play area is available for children and parents with quiet toys, paper and crayons, books and room to crawl around.  This area is most appropriate for children from infant to age 4 or 5.   There is a rocking chair or seating in pews for parents.  It is located towards the front on the west side of the sanctuary.  You may spend the entire worship time there with your children or come and go as you wish. 

If you prefer to take your young children to the nursery, our attendant, Amanda Catalano is available during the Sunday School hour and during the 10:45 AM Worship Service. 


Worship and Wonder

Worship and Wonder is a ministry for young children that is based on and has many elements of our
 worship service. It's for Pre-K through 4th grade. 

Children gather with their teacher during the praise songs early in the regular worship service and proceed to the classroom upstairs. We sing songs and have a story from the Bible with simple felt and wood shapes, and other props. The stories include the parables, and stories from the Old and New Testament. We follow the liturgical calendar. The children may then choose an
art activity or a story to retell.  Afterwards, we gather again for scripture, “offering”, a prayer and our feast ( a simple snack). We then have time to visit before dismissing with a song.
If you have questions about this ministry, please contact the church office.
