Infants and Toddlers
Both sides of our nursery are open from 9:45am to 11:30pm. Children ages birth - 18 months will enjoy playing and rocking with their caregiver Rane in the infant nursery. We have an attached crib room for those infants who need to have their morning nap. Children ages 18 months to 3 years will have fun with Sami in the toddler nursery. They will have a light snack, play time, and hear Bible stories.
We have a 'Mother's Room' off of Room 101 to afford those nursing or needing some quiet time with their infant a little privacy.
Children’s Sunday School Classes
Children ages 3-Grade 5 join their families for the beginning of 10:00am worship, and exit the Sanctuary after the Children's Message. Their Sunday School teacher will meet them in the Narthex and walk them to their room. Please pick up children immediately after service. The last page of the bulletin lists our classroom numbers. In summer, we will all meet together in Room 210 for a lesson and snack, then head out to the playground if there is time.
During the program year (Sept. - May), children between age 4 and grade 5 are invited to join Dr. Chelsea Vaught for a fun time exercising their musical creativity by singing, playing instruments and other music games. Rehearsals are weekly from 9:45 - 10:15 in Room 210. We will be singing in worship periodically. Questions? Contact Dr. Chelsea Vaught, 426-7421 ext 137 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Bucket Brigade Collection
The third Sunday of every month children pass buckets through the congregation at the 10:00am worship service collecting money for church mission projects. One of the projects the bucket money supports is World Vision International. The children have adopted a 9-year-old Kenyan boy named Njoroge through the World Vision organization. The children keep in touch with Njorge with many letters passed back and forth. The children love to receive their special mail from Africa!
