For the first three weeks of the month, pre-K through 5th grade children remain with their parents for the first 15 minutes of the service. They then gather around the altar for a brief “Talk with the Children” with Pastor John. After this talk and a short prayer, the children are sent off to Sunday School either downstairs from the sanctuary or in the meeting house. Sunday School classes are taught by adult volunteers, who use the Bible and the “Seasons of the Spirit” curriculum to learn about God. Classes are very hands-on, featuring appropriate craft projects that are tied to the lessons.
The service on the last Sunday of the month is intergenerational. Children remain with their parents.
