children's church

All children KG-3rd grade are invited to attend Children's Church during the 11:00 Contemporary and Traditional Services.  Volunteers will be stationed outside each service entrance with an iPad to register children interested in participating.  Families will then be seated to participate in service and and children will be released to go to Children's Church at set points in the service.  Typically before the sermon begins.  A volunteer will be located at the back of the sanctuary and at the back of the MPR to escort the children to Room #206 for class (Parents need not leave service to walk their children to class)  When service is over, parents will collect their children from Room #206.

The goal of having a  Children's Church is to spend time with the children and begin to  learn the basics of a church service and to better understand the traditions of the Methodist Church.   We are also able to discuss and explore topics that pertain to the sermon their parents are hearing in the Sanctuary or MPR.   

* Important Note:  Children's Church will not be offered the first Sunday of each month. 

This is Communion Sunday and we would like the children to stay in service with their

families to experience this tradition.
