Church School

Church School programs, including the Nursery, have resumed meeting in-person. Covid protocols are in place and include mask requirements for all people over age 2 and regular sanitizing of shared toys and spaces.

At this time, the Children’s Corner is still closed. As an alternative, child-friendly activity kits are available for use during worship in the pews.

Infant and Toddler Care

Adult supervised childcare for infants and toddlers is provided each Sunday from 9:45 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. in Room 216 while parents attend worship.

 

Registration forms can be filled out online here.

 

Each week parents are asked to sign their child in and out at one of three check-in stations to ensure their child’s safety. Make sure your contact information is up to date in the system so you can be reached that morning.

Three and Four Year Old’s

After the children’s message each Sunday, three and four-year-olds are invited to meet in room 214. On the first Sunday of each month when Communion is celebrated, however, children celebrate All-Ages worship in the Meeting House to engage the sacraments and traditions of our church in new ways together.

 

Children are introduced to the Christian faith through stories, music, and simple crafts. Our preschoolers will also be encouraged to get to know one another and our teachers through creative play. This is a self-selecting class, and a child can join this class at a younger or older age if this offering best meets their needs.

 

Each week parents are also asked to sign their child in and out at the check-in stations located outside the Meeting House entrances to ensure their safety. Make sure your contact information is up to date in the system so you can be reached that morning.

Kindergartners through 5th Grade

After the children’s message each Sunday, children in kindergarten through fifth grade are dismissed to their classrooms on the 4th floor. Church School classes end at 11:10 a.m. On the first Sunday of each month when Communion is celebrated, however, children celebrate All-Ages worship in the Meeting House to engage the sacraments and traditions of our church in new ways together.

 

Our church school program uses the Workshop Rotation Model. Children rotate by class in a different themed workshop for a month-long period. Volunteer teachers lead each workshop on a flexible rotating schedule. During each rotation, children hear about a Bible story in a different way. Children have the opportunity to explore the stories of their faith through drama, games, cooking, building, and art.

 

Each week parents are also asked to sign their child in at the check-in stations located outside the Meeting House entrances. Make sure your contact information is up to date in the system so you can be reached that morning.

6th and 7th Grade

New for 2021-22!  A class for 6th and 7th graders will be available on Sunday Mornings. Stay tuned for more information. 

8th Grade

Our 8th grade students (and older) are invited to participate in a Confirmation program entitled “Confirm, not Conform.” This is a year which invites exploration and questions! We hope each participant will deepen their faith, and make it their own. 

 

Additionally, during the course of the confirmation year, participants will determine whether or not they wish to confirm the vows their parents made on their behalf at their baptism. If they have not yet been baptized, baptism is offered. Confirmation welcomes these young people into full membership of the church.

 

In early September there will be an orientation for students and parents to learn more about the program.
