CHECK IN: Check in for Children's Church is at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall before church starts on Sunday mornings. Then your child will go with you into the sanctuary.
DISMISSAL: Your child will worship with you during the first song. Then, during the announcements, your child will be dismissed to Children’s Worship and Sunday School. Our volunteers will meet them in the back of the sanctuary and will walk with them to the chapel. Don’t worry! If you forgot to check your child in, our volunteers can help you check in during the announcements!
WORSHIP: Your child will have a super special, age appropriate worship experience in the chapel led by a team of our volunteers!
EDUCATION: After your children have 20 minutes of worship (just like their mom and/or dad!), they will be separated into classes where they will learn about Bible stories and how dearly God loves them in exciting, energetic, and age-appropriate ways.
DISMISSAL: Your child will then be brought to the chapel where they will hang out with their friends and our amazing volunteers until you come pick them up! Please come pick your child up as soon as church is dismissed. After you do, you can go chat with your friends and enjoy a cup of coffee!
Focus Verse: Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.
Focus Hymn:Let us build a house where hands will reach beyond the wood and stone to heal and strengthen, serve and teach, and live the Word they’ve known. Here the outcast and the stranger bear the image of God’s face; let us bring an end to fear and danger. All are welcome! All are welcome! All are welcome in this place!
Human Need: We want to do good out of a desire to help others and ourselves.
Community Challenge: Jesus’ teaching tells us that the good will enter the kingdom and the bad will head to the eternal garbage dump. The criterion for this final decision will depend on how we have treated ‘the least of these.’
Personal Response: That we will recognize ourselves as being implicated in God’s judgment as both good and bad, and recognizing with fear the degree to which we’re rotten but not discarded.
