We’re an intergenerational church. People of all ages have a place here.
Our youngest babies and toddlers are well cared for in our well-staffed and well-stocked nursery. Children in pre-school and early elementary school attend Children’s Church during Sunday morning worship.
Kids of all ages are regularly involved in helping lead worship and participate in service projects through our outreach ministries. Families serve together by participating in the CROP Walk and the Human Race, among other activities. Classes and small groups are regularly offered for parents, and regular social events for young adults and families provide an opportunity to connect.
On the first and third Sunday evenings of each month there are opportunities for all ages. Keep reading for details on faith formation for children and families. Click here for faith formation for youth.
Sunday Night Families
First Sunday: Potluck and Program
On the first Sunday of each month we gather at 5:30 for a simple, all-generations potluck dinner. A host family provides the main dish, others bring a side to share. After dinner, the elementary school kids have a Bible lesson and activities, and childcare is offered for kids preschool and younger. A program for grown-ups features topics about faith practices and navigating life in this complicated world. You don’t have to be a parent to join in!
Third Sunday: 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 have a lesson and activity; kids preschool and younger play in the nursery. Dinner is 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.
