During Worship

Each week, children, youth and adults are encouraged to come together around Word, song, and Sacrament to hear from God, be nourished by the gifts of grace, and be sent into the week in faith and service.  Children are welcome to be in worship with their parents and participate fully in the service. Alternatively, children preschool to grade 5 may accompany leaders to Children’s Time after the opening, and returning to worship before communion.

Youth are welcome to provide leadership through various aspects of the service as acolytes, readers/lectors, ushers, assistant ministers or sound/projection assistants.

 

Children’s Time (NEW!)

Children ages preschool through grade 5 are dismissed to the Fellowship Hall for age appropriate lessons and activities relative to the day’s lectionary bible readings. Children are excused after the Children’s Message and return prior to Communion.
