Chapel Worship

Join us for this Worship bags are available near the entrances of the Chapel for children.  More information on Worship bags are listed below.
 

Sunday School

9:45-10:45am | CCLC Classrooms | Ages:  Nursery – 5th grade

At Sunday School, children will be engaged by exciting and faith building Bible stories, crafts, games, and songs from our new curriculum, Deep Blue: At Home with God by Cokesbury.

 
Confirmation
9:45-10:45am | Tween Room (102) | Ages:  6th grade
This is a time for 6th graders to explore their faith together, learn about our United Methodist history and theology, and decide for themselves what it means to live their lives as followers of Christ. Confirmation is led this year by Jenniefer Parker and Shannon Cain.  Children do not have to be baptized to participate in Confirmation, although they will need to be baptized before they are Confirmed on Sunday, April 28, 2019.
If your child is interested in Confirmation, please contact Abbey Echols at abbey@firstmethodistsherman.org.
 

Children’s Time

11:00am | Sanctuary | All children are welcome
This is a special time in our Traditional Worship where children are invited to come to the front of the sanctuary where they will learn a short lesson with the pastor.
 

Children’s Worship

Following Children’s Time| Children’s Chapel | Ages: 3 – 2nd grade

This is a miniature version of “Big Worship” made just for Pre-K and early elementary aged children, led by our Children’s Worship Leader, Katie Voelkel.  Here, children will sing songs of worship, learn the Bible story of the day, reflect on what they have learned through meditation and quiet prayer time, and take up an offering.  As children leave, they will be blessed with special “blessing balm” (chapstick!) so they may face the coming week knowing that they are blessings and that God loves them so incredibly much! 
 

Worship Bags

11:00am Traditional Worship | Ages:  3 years through 5th grade

Worship Bags are packed with paper, crayons, coloring sheets, pipe cleaners, and this week’s Children’s Worship Bulletin.  Each week, the Children’s Worship Bulletins and coloring sheets directly relate to what the pastor will be teaching about that Sunday – so the whole family learns the same message!  Bags are designed for two different age groups, Pre-K – 1st grade and 2nd – 5th grade, and they are labeled accordingly near the entrances to the sanctuary.
