SUNDAY MORNINGS

WORSHIP

9am or 11am*: WHICH TIME WORKS FOR YOU?

In worship at The Federated Church, we joyfully embody the living Spirit of God – glorifying God through scripture and sermon, music and prayer, silence and sound. We invite people to pursue God wholeheartedly in a personal and a corporate way and to be transformed. We strive for justice and inclusiveness following Jesus’ example of love and celebrate the diversity of God’s creation knowing that every person is uniquely made in God’s image. 


On most Sundays (between Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends*) we offer two services, one at 9am and another at 11am. Both have the excellent music and thought-provoking sermons that Federated is known for.  Sunday School is offered during the worship service at both hours.  Children in Kindergarten or older start in the service with their families and then leave together for Sunday School.


* In the summer we have a single service at 10am.

FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

FOR INFANTS & TODDLERS

We love infants and toddlers at Federated!  We are committed to providing a clean, safe, and age appropriate environment for your little ones while you attend church service.  Our paid child care providers have undergone full background checks and drug screening.  They are consistently here for easy transitions when parting with your child.  Our goal for our nursery is to model God’s love for your child by providing quality care. We also have a Parents Room adjacent to the Sanctuary on Bell Street where parents can worship with their little ones.


FOR PRESCHOOLERS

Sunday School for Preschoolers will take place in Kids Cove (Room 30) using First Look, a curriculum designed specifically for the littlest learners.  This curriculum focuses on communicating three basic truths to preschoolers through the use of Bible stories, videos, activities, music and crafts.  

These truths are:
    *God made me.
    *God loves me.
    *Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

FOR KINDERGARTNERS - 6th GRADERS

 Sunday School is offered for this age group. Upon arrival parents or guardians are asked to sign in child/ren at the desk located in the downstairs Lobby or at the small table in the Narthex behind the Sanctuary.  Please make time to arrive early enough to include this check-in process so we can obtain valuable allergy information.


The children will begin the morning in the Sanctuary.  They will be excused after the Children's Moment in the service to go to Sunday School, which takes place on the second floor of the educational wing.  Children should be picked up from the second floor classrooms following the service.  


At Discovery Island we use a rotation curriculum called Deep Blue.  Deep Blue allows children to experience a Bible story through art, cooking, games, mission, science, spiritual practices, storytelling and drama, allowing them to interact and creatively explore God’s wondrous world.  As a result, each Bible story and its meaning will stay with them for life!
