Children and Youth attend the beginning of the regular 10:30 a.m. worship with their families. The Family Time is a time for us to worship together as an entire community. Songs and readings for the beginning of the service will be specifically chosen with a multigenerational congregation in mind.
Before each service begins, all people will have an opportunity to light a small candle from a chalice burning in the front of the sanctuary. The candle lighting is a private act, done without comment, during the Time for Community, the Announcements, and the Prelude. This is a space for people, especially families, to have a ritual moment together – to light a candle for a sick relative, a pet, to honor a birthday, etc.
Approximately once a month we will have Community Worship Services. On these days, we will have no children’s classes, but we will offer Nursery and “Extended Care” for children 2nd grade and younger in Room 1 downstairs.
