The Nursery is available from 8:30 am through the end of the 11 am service and is staffed by paid experienced caregivers. Parents may use the nursery, or children may stay with their parents during the service. The nursery is most appropriate for children younger than 4 years old—the nursery toys and materials are geared for toddlers and young preschoolers. We also attempt to have childcare for most other adult activities to make it easier for parents to attend.
Sunday School is held at 10 am in the Education Building for pre-school through 5th grade. The curriculum focuses on hearing all the essential Bible and Church stories. The children respond to the story through discussion and a creative activity. Its foundation is very popular Godly Play curriculum.
Children’s Chapel is held during the 11 am service. At the beginning of the service, children sit with their parents and after the opening processional hymn, Fr. David calls them up to the front for a blessing before they go with Ms. Carol Waltner for the Children’s Chapel.
Kids’ Night Out is an opportunity for children to get to know and interact with other children, and a chance for the parents to have a night free. It is not mere babysitting put a coordinated enrichment program which includes activities, supper, and crafts. It is offered once per month on the 3rd Saturday, from 4 – 8:00 PM. It is very helpful if you call Carol Waltner to make a reservation so she can arrange the proper staffing.
