Children Worship and Wonder
Children Worship & Wonder is a worship experience offered during our 10:45 service for children ages 3 through 2nd grade. Trained storytellers present Bible stories in a way that allows children to enter into the stories and form responses out of their own life experiences. Through Children Worship & Wonder, children learn about God as they experience God. Following the children's moment at the 10:45 service, children leave for Worship & Wonder and return for communion and the close of worship.
On the last Sunday of each month, we suspend Worship & Wonder so that all ages can attend worship together. This is one way of acknowledging and honoring the gifts each member of this community has to offer one another. Worship is one of the most basic ways we learn what it means to be Christian and we believe that the presence of children in worship enhances the spiritual growth of our entire community. For ideas on how to help children get the most out of their worship experience click here for our Making Room for Children brochure.

Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade are welcome to sing in the Children’s Choir. Rehearsals are from 10:15-10:40 am in Room 202. We occasionally sing during worship services and participate in the annual Christmas Program, coming up on December 16. Amy Diediker is our wonderful director!
