Faith Formation for Children and Families (and everybody else, too!)
The youth don’t get all the fun! There are opportunities for children and families on the first and third Sundays as well.*
Potluck and Program
On the first Sunday of each month we’ll gather at 5:30 for a simple, all-generations potluck dinner. A host family will provide the main dish, you bring a side to share. After dinner, the elementary school kids will have a Bible lesson and activities, and childcare will be offered for kids preschool and younger. A program for grown-ups will feature topics about faith practices and navigating life in this complicated world. You don’t have to be a parent to join in!
Parents Night Out
On the third Sunday, parents can drop the kids off at church from 5:30-7:00. Under the supervision of excellent volunteers and staff, the elementary school kids will have a lesson and activity; kids preschool and younger will play in the nursery. Dinner will be provided.
Parents can run some errands, go out on a date, or meet up with other parents for some grown-up conversation. Cost for this program is $3 per child or $5 per family, to help cover the cost of childcare and dinner, and sign-ups must be received by the Thursday before each month.
Here’s the schedule for the fall:
