Programs for Children & Youth
During Sunday services, the children are gathered for a special sermon from the presider. Then they are taken to either Children’s Chapel or Sunday school where creativity and wonder are encouraged! Children are escorted back into the main worship service in time for Communion.
Children from 0-3 years of age are in the hands of our wonderful, competent, screened and trained staff. Read more here.
June, July and August, Children's Chapel is held during the 10:30AM service to teach the Gospel through stories and crafts. The curriculum used is “Living the Good News” which is an online lectionary-based Christian education curriculum.
Acolytes: Acolytes are trained to serve at the altar during worship. They generally act as the priest's assistant, as well as light the candles, walk in the procession, and help with offerings and sacraments. Anyone in 3rd grade or higher is eligible to serve as an acolyte.
Noisy Sundays happen whenever a month has a 5th Sunday. During that Sunday service, a second collection basket is for loose change (hence, the noise). All monies collected are for the children & youth programs.
Vacation Bible School (VBS): 4 year olds-4th grade. We hold a three-day program in July which consists of bible stories, crafts, songs, games and a play or concert that the children practice throughout the three days then perform for parents and family on the last day.
Mission: To build a loving fellowship of Disciples of Christ through service, education and recreation.
