Our Kid Philosophy
We are committed to the spiritual growth of all members of our faith community. We have intentionally adopted a style of children’s education that has our children included in our worship services. Children in worship is a spiritual formation approach that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. Children participate as they are able, some read, some greet as people arrive, and others bring their musical gifts to our worship. Children and adults are invited to experience the wonder and mystery of God through story-telling in the children’s focus and sermon, through activities offered in the chapel and with the use of At Home Resources. Children are full participants in the household of God - full members of the family. We are excited to offer this integrated worship/learning experience.
