Sunday Mornings – Education Time

Pre-K – Elementary School: “Children’s Church” during the morning service (@ 9:45 – 10:15 AM). 

After gathering as a whole community in the sanctuary for the opening hymns and prayers (and a children’s message with Pastor Kari Jo), children from pre-K – 5th grade will be invited to continue their worship with a teacher and helper in the fellowship hall, where they will explore the week’s Bible story through story-telling, song, and activities. The “children’s church” community will return to the sanctuary for the distribution of communion and closing song and blessing. 

Middle School: Confirmation Class (5 PM – 6:30 PM on alternating Sunday evenings. Dinner provided).

This 2-year faith formation program focuses on accompanying middle school youth as they begin to outgrow their parents’ or grandparents’ faith and start to wonder how they might affirm the Christian faith in terms that make sense to their emerging selves. Though the program does lead up to the rite of confirmation, there is no expectation or requirement that each child will choose to affirm their faith in that way when the time comes. The class will be designed to create a safe, fun, inclusive environment that mirrors God’s unshakeable embrace of each unique participant.

If you have a child in this age range and have not yet spoken with Pastor Kari Jo about their involvement, please reach out to her.  All are welcome!

Adult Faith Formation: Morning Forums (Occasional Sundays at 11 AM).

From time-to-time on Sunday mornings, community members will present or lead discussion around a field of their interest or expertise, or a common concern or delight. If you are interested in leading a session some time, please be in touch with Pastor Kari Jo.
