Confirmation
 
9:45-10:45am | Room | 6th grade
 
At Confirmation, our 6th graders explore their faith in addition to our Christian heritage all the way up to our current United Methodist history and theology!  This group is led by Robert and Sherry Little and Diane Hudson. (See below for more information.)
 

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.  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 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 – 2nd grade and 3rd – 5th grade, and they are labeled accordingly near the entrances to the sanctuary.
