Children, Youth and Families
Sunday Worship and Education Hour
Fall is here and we want to welcome and remind families about the opportunities we have for children and youth beginning Sunday, September 8.
All children are welcome to join us in worship! There are activities in the back of the Sanctuary to help children engage in worship. We also have rocking chairs in the back to help soothe our youngest disciples.
Children Infant through 2 years old are welcome to check out our Nursery and meet our childcare staff beginning at 8:30 am on Sunday mornings. We have developmentally engaging and biblically centered toys for children to enjoy.
Children 3 years old through 4 years old are welcome to check out our Preschool room (Blue Room) beginning at 8:30 on Sunday mornings. In the Preschool room we offer snack, play time, and a Bible story time.
Children 5 years old through 8 years old are invited to depart from worship after the Passing of the Peace and participate in Children’s worship in the Choir Room. During this time we will pray, sing a song, hear a Scripture reading and explore the daily scripture through discussion and an activity. Children will return to worship during the Song of Response following the Sermon.
At FPCE children’s and youth ministries we know that every family and every child is different. We encourage families to feel out what will work best for you and your children, with the overarching goal being to help children meet God through the worship experience. Please reach out with any questions, we want to help support families in growing in God on Sunday mornings and beyond.
