Child care for children under age 4 is available in the nursery beginning at 9:45 a.m. Children may be brought into the church for communion by their parents, but if they stay in the nursery the sacrament will brought to them there.


We want to make sure you have a comfortable place to go if you need a quiet space to feed your baby or just rock him/her. Moms, dads, and grandparents are welcome to utilize the counseling center right next to the nursery, as well as Rev. Mary’s office.


Kid Packs are available for all children. Located in the Narthex; the packs are marked according to age level and include a clipboard, crayons and a short activity relating to the church service.



All children gather together in the new Children's Chapel located downstairs at 9:45 a.m. for a gathering song and prayer. Then all will go to their respective classrooms at 10:00 a.m.

Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance for children. The Montessori-based curriculum values process, openness, discovery, community and relationships through stories and response time - deepening their understanding and knowledge of God. Godly Play I is for children age 4 through Kindergarten. Godly Play II is for students in grades 1 and 2.

Faith Foundations is a lectionary-based program building bridges between church and life for students in grades 3, 4 and 5.

Living Compass invites students to think about their life holistically, as they begin to tie their health and wellness to their faith, using faith as a living compass, which guides their daily decisions, in heart, soul, strength and mind - all of it. Living Compass is for students in grades 6 and up.

All children will rejoin their parents in the church at the exchange of the Peace.
