Throughout the year, we focus many of our services on our entire community of all ages, offering Whole Congregation Worship.
Congregations that include children and youth in their worship services tend to have more young adults stay involved in their communities, thus sustaining their faith into the future. Also, parents have expressed excitement about worshiping more frequently with their children. And volunteer teachers don’t want to miss so many worship services with their beloved community.
On Most Sundays, as we have done for decades, the entire congregation will begin together in the sanctuary. Then children will be sung out of the Sanctuary to go to their Sunday morning circles.
On Whole Congregation Worship Sundays people of all ages will experience worship together for the whole service.
Every Sunday, parents of infant up to Kindergarten age will have the option of having their children cared for in our staffed Nursery starting at 10:15am.
At any time during a worship service, parents and children may leave the sanctuary to go to the Family Room, where you can listen to the service and play with an array of crafts, books, and games. The Family Room also allows an opportunity for fellowship among families with children. ****Parents must stay with their children in this room.
We want our worship services to reach people of every learning style. Because some people listen better if their hands are occupied, so we will now have Soul Work Boxes (formerly known as “busy boxes”) for all ages.
