SUNDAY FORMATION   |   CHILDREN 

Nursery
Sundays   | 9:45 – 11:45a
Both Campuses, Nursery
Nursery care is provided for our youngest members (under 3 years old) every Sunday during the 10:30a services. In a warm and nurturing environment, we will assist you in beginning to build your child's faith foundation from the ground up. Children can be picked up at any time. We look forward to greeting you and your children for nursery care!

Godly Play
Sundays   | 10:30a
Education Building, Second floor

Godly Play is our Sunday School program for children ages 3 years old (and fully potty trained)–5th grade. Before the 10:30a worship services, parents bring their children to the Godly Play rooms located on the second floor of the Education Building. Greeters at the door help each child become ready to enter the room quietly. Children will sit in a circle with a storyteller who will share the Godly Play story of the day. Everything in the classroom is intentionally set as a “sacred space” for a time of engagement that shapes and deepens the faith of our children. Parents return at the Peace to pick up their children for Holy Communion.  

We always welcome new adult and youth partners in ministry to our Sunday morning Godly Play team! The Godly Play method nourishes spiritual and moral development in both children and adults. The goal is for children to enter adolescence with an understanding of Christian language and stories that will be with them for the rest of their lives. Faith practice is a lifelong journey. Through wondering about God’s stories, we are all nourished.
