During our 9:00 am worship service, children ages 3 and up through older Elementary children are welcome to come forward for the children’s message. Then children, 2nd grade and below, are invited to join in their special programs. Children who go to a program such as Creative Movement and Music, or Children and Worship are taken directly to their Sunday School classes by the teachers. Children in 3rd grade and older should leave the worship service when it is over, get snacks in the Social Hall, and then go directly to their classes. We are asking parents to sign up to bring snacks to Sunday School classes up through second/third grade class.
The Sunday School Classes start at 10:00 am. (Adult Education Classes begin at 10:15 am). We do request that parents stay in the church building during Sunday School so we can reach you in case of an emergency.
Creative Movement and Music
Beginning September 10th, our preschool aged children (ages 3 – 5) are invited to join with music leaders Ellen Manno and Kate Woodruff in Westminster Hall for a time of music, movement, and fun! Our leaders are assisted by one of our childcare workers. This program begins following the Children’s Message during the 9:00 am worship service. At the conclusion of this program, the children are escorted by their Sunday School teachers to their classrooms. This program is designed for children who are already 3 years old by September 1st. Children turning 3 years old during the school year should wait until next Fall to join Creative Movement and Music, which is the same time they will start Sunday School. (Our Toddler Room is designed for ages 2 and 3)
Children and Worship Class
Our Children and Worship program begins on September 10 with leaders, Jody Barth, Linda Edvar, Jenny Van Hook and Katie O’Hara Krebs. This program is for 1st and 2nd graders who choose not to stay in the worship service. They meet in room 11 following the Children’s Message during the 9:00 am worship service. At the conclusion of this program, the children are escorted by their Sunday School teachers to their Sunday School classrooms.
