Children’s Church on Sundays
After the children’s sermon during worship, children ages 3 to 6 go upstairs to the Godly Play room. Godly Play is based upon the recognition that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. This program teaches classical Christian language in a way that enhances the child’s authentic experience of God so it can contribute to the creative life of the child and the world.
