Christian Formation for Our Youth

Ages 0-4: The Ark

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.

Ages 4 (by 8/1/18) through 2nd grade: Godly Play

Coordinator: Sue-Ellen

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.

Ages 3rd-5th Grades

“The Group” (We will let the kids pick their group name!)

Coordinator: Bob

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.

YOUTH group

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.)
