Room 230- Birth thru Pre-school/Kindergarten
This bright and colorful room is full of toys, books, coloring pages and love. Here, each week, two of our three childcare providers will greet you and your kiddos any time after 9:30 am on Sunday morning. During the service they will read a story from The Rhyme Bible and then lead a related activity or game. There will also be plenty of time for free play. Water and snacks will be made available. Our goal is to provide a positive introduction to coming to church and a beginning familiarity with some bible stories that teach that God is always with us.
Room 220- Kindergarten thru 5th Grade
These age kiddos will begin their time at church in the service until they are dismissed, usually during the passing of the peace. They will be met in the narthex and guided upstairs where they will begin their own time of worship. Each week, the kiddos will spend some time in the “sacred space” getting to know God by getting to know each other. In addition, this room uses a curriculum called “A Joyful Path.” It is a behavior over belief approach that encourages kiddos to explore their own spiritual lives. Using Bible and other wisdom stories, activities and games, it teaches how to follow the path of Jesus in today’s world.
Room 240- 6th thru 8th Grade
Middle school Sunday School is back and will also begin once kiddos are dismissed from service. They will meet every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month. This will allow kiddos to worship with their families on communion Sundays and begin to experience the fullness of time in the sanctuary. This class will use a lectionary-based curriculum written for younger teens. It helps guide students into the text, and through a series of open-ended, text-related questions, they begin to see the Bible as a vital, dynamic relevant resource–one that can inform them throughout their lives. We will also use games and journaling to get to know ourselves and each other.
