As we begin to gather again in person we are offering several ways for families to worship together:
This space in the Chapel is intended especially for families with infants and toddlers, recognizing that small kids are often more engaged when they can see what is going on.
- What is the Pray-Ground?The Pray-Ground is a space in the front of the sanctuary geared towards young children (ages 0-3) and their families during worship. It consists of a large area rug (to provide some boundaries), soft toys, books, and for infants, there is a bouncy seat. This allows the youngest among us to do what they do best—play—while also being a part of the worship service.
Located at the entrances to the sanctuary, it contains books, crayons, puzzles, and other things to keep hands occupied, and help children become comfortable in our worship space.
All children Preschool - 4th grade are invited to participate in the Children’s Church, where they will worship in an age-appropriate way. They will rejoin their parents at the time of communion.
All youth in grades 4 and above are active and participating members of all our services: as acolytes, greeters, Junior Altar Guild, lectors, and musicians. Youth in grades 8 and above additionally serve as Children’s Chapel Leaders and assist with hospitality.
