The mission of our RE program for children and youth is to provide a structured, caring environment that nurtures each child and provides opportunities for religious discovery and personal growth. Our emphasis is on living a life of freedom controlled by responsible attitudes, rather than living by doctrines and rules.
What we offer:
We provide childcare for babies, toddlers and pre-school age children from 8:45 am to 12:00 pm (for choir rehearsal and the both services).
Kindergarten through High School attend the first 20 minutes of the gathering service beginning at 10:30 am. The Sunday school program begins at approximately 10:50 am. This gives parents a wonderful opportunity to teach their children appropriate behavior for worship service. Children should be encouraged to learn to respect the quiet times of the service as well as participate during the appropriate times. Sunday classes end at 12:00 am.
We are welcoming to every child. Please let us know about any special needs your child may have so that we can provide the best experience.
