Nursery is provided each week during worship for infants and younger children. Loving and experienced adult volunteers ensure a safe and fun environment. All volunteers who work with children are background checked.
Children in grades k-5 are welcome to attend Sunday School after the Time with Children in worship. On communion Sundays (generally the first Sunday in the month), children remain in the sanctuary with their families for the service and for communion.
Our Sunday School teacher, Lauren, always has wonderfully creative lessons that connect with the scripture the rest of the church is hearing in worship. Parents and children can "exchange notes" and talk about what they heard in Sunday School and in the sermon on the ride home and throughout the week! There are volunteer adult helpers each week. All staff and volunteers who work with children have been background checked.
Sunday School runs from the first Sunday after Labor Day to the end of June.
Youth Group is for youth in grades 6-12. Youth Group focus on developing friendships and forming faith in our young people. Leaders encourage honest discussions and offer a safe space to talk about school, family, and faith. Annual retreats, youth-led worship services, and mission projects also foster lasting bonds among the group members.
This year (2019/20), we are teaming up with Amazing Grace Lutheran Church for all of our youth group activities! More friends = More fun!
