Children’s Ministry starting Fall 23
Programs for Infants to 5th Graders from Sept. 2023 – May 2024
Every Sunday morning during service we have spiritual programming for our youngest community members. We share worship with children using monthly spiritual themes drawn from Soul Matters.
In 2023-2024 we will explore the gifts of our faith.
Childcare for Crawlers and Toddlers
Parents of infants are welcome to keep their children with them either in the Sanctuary or in the Wiggle Room at the rear of the sanctuary.
Sunshine Circle (preschool and kindergarteners)
Sunshine Circle, which is for preschoolers and kindergartners, gather in 104 Peace Hall lead by our Family Ministry Assistant Brittany Wilson. Each Sunday children will gather for a simple worship with a special message, story, meditation, and joys and sorrows circle. They also enjoy time on our small playground for younger children and making crafts.
Chalice Chapel (1st – 5th Grade)
First Sunday Time for All Ages
On the first Sunday of each month, children and their families will begin together in the Sanctuary for community rituals such as Water Communion, Child Dedication, and Animal Blessings.
Following Sundays in 201 Peace Hall
On following Sundays, children will gather together for their own short worship service lead by Family Ministry Director Dana Lundquist and Jennifer Williams in the Peace Hall which will include hymns, joys and sorrows, interactive wisdom tales, and mindfulness practices to deepen their understanding of each months’ spiritual theme.
You can sign up for these opportunities during Family Ministry Registration
Social Justice Passports
Children and their families can explore our Justice Ministries together by signing up for a social justice passport! By participating in multigenerational justice events outside of Sunday morning they can collect stickers to earn small prizes and a celebration at the end of the year. Learn more here!
Children’s Choir for 1st – 5th Graders
Chalice Choir is open to children in first through fifth grade. We learn singing and music skills in a playful way that builds community.
Chalice Choir will often sing on the first Sunday of the month during Time for All Ages in the sanctuary.
No audition is necessary, and one may join at any point in the year. Regular attendance as much as possible is encouraged. Practice is each Sunday 11:30am to 12:15pm in Room 105 of Peace Hall.
