The parish nursery is lovingly called “The Ark” and is open during worship services, classes and other events. The Ark offers a safe place, with a consistent staff, for children to play. The Ark’s play spaces include a train table, a pretend kitchen, dress-up clothes, and cushions for resting and looking at books. The quiet area for babies has sleeping spaces, as well as rocking chairs and age-appropriate toys. The well-equipped playground adjacent to the nursery is often used when weather and daylight permit.
Ark hours beginning August 26: Sunday 9:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. For special events, Ark hours will be posted.
Godly Play offers a creative, child-honoring way of entering into and experiencing the biblical story. In Godly Play, we play with the language of God and God’s People: our sacred stories, parables, liturgical actions and silence. Through this powerful language, through our wondering, through the community of players gathered together, we hear the deepest invitation of all: an invitation to come play with God.
NEW FOR THIS YEAR:
As we move back to a 9 am family-centered worship service, we would like to modify the order of service to better accommodate families. All will participate in the the service and after the Holy Eucharist (around 9:45), kids will follow the children’s cross and process during the post-communion hymn from the sanctuary to Godly Play in room 3. Older children and adults will stay for a short homily and dismissal by 10 am in time to join other Christian formation activities.
“The Group” (We will let the kids pick their group name!)
A place to grow and share and feel like a community. Videos, discussions, crafts and service projects will be part of this diverse age group’s activities. Meets in Room 2.
Ages 6th-12th grades
Coordinators: Chrissy and Justin
Informal format for gathering and sharing. A focus on community building and service will be promoted. Meets (initially) in the garden (next to the church.)
