Children & Youth Ministry
Vacation Bible School
Our VBS is usually held in August. This year, it is July 29 – August 2, 2019. We would love to have participants join us in worship on Sunday, August 4 to show the congregation what we learned. You can learn more about VBS here.
Our Nursery is available for all children from birth through two years of age. A nursery care worker is on duty from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. each Sunday morning so that parents may feel able to attend both the church service and the Sunday School hour.
The Toddler Class is specifically designed for children ages 2 & 3 years. This Sunday School teacher is also in the room from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. each Sunday. (We realize how difficult it is for these little ones to sit through church!) The children have a Sunday School lesson, music, craft, snack-time, and play time.
Pre-K and K Class – Way of Good Shepherd Introduction
The Pre-K and K level students meet on the first floor for a Montessori type of spiritual formation.
K – 2nd Graders – Way of the Good Shepherd Level 1
The Kindergarten through 2nd graders meet on the second floor in an atrium environment for a Montessori type of spiritual formation after the Story on the Steps in the church service. It is your discretion if your kindergartener is ready for Level 1 (requires at least 15 minutes of attention for a lesson, then “free” working time), or if he/she should attend the introduction class downstairs for more movement.
3rd – 5th Graders – Way of the Good Shepherd Level 2
3rd through 5th graders meet on the second floor in an atrium environment for a Montessori type of spiritual formation after the church service is concluded. This is during the Sunday School hour.
6th – 12th Graders
The 7th through 12th graders meet upstairs in the Youth Room.
Youth Fellowship (YF) is open to all students in the 6th – 12th grades, and is held Sunday evenings.
