FaithKids - where kids grow in Faith!
Please know children of all ages are welcome in worship! However, should your child become restless, Nursery care is available all morning from 9-11:30 for children 5 and under. A Children’s Sermon is part of worship every Sunday at the 9 a.m. traditional service and the 10:30 a.m. informal service.
Christian Education will be held in-between the services (9:50 – 10:30 a.m.) for children and youth. The dismissal from the service will be noted in the bulletin before the Benediction.
- Children, preschool – 5th grade will exit through the narthex where Miss Dineen will direct you. Preschool - 2nd grade will meet upstairs, and 3rd - 5th grade (Junior Youth) will meet in the library.
- Youth in grades 6-12 will go directly to the Youth Room to meet with Eric and Abby Jezewski.
- Those who typically attend the second service are invited to go directly to their area by 9:50 a.m.
- Parents/adults are invited to enjoy the Kinship Café.
+ Throughout the church year, FaithKids and families will gather at events around food, fellowship and faith-building. Special events include:
Bibles - Kindergartners receive a Spark Story Bible and 1st graders receive a Spark NRSV Gift Bible.
First Communion Instruction - During the season of Lent, we provide a First Communion Retreat to prepare third graders for receiving the sacrament for the first time. (If a child has received communion prior to third grade at another church, they are welcome at the table at Faith.) If a child shows genuine interest in receiving the sacrament prior to third grade, please speak with the pastor about joining the First Communion Retreat.
Vacation Bible School – In the summer, Faith hosts a week of VBS for children preschool through completed 5th grade. Creative and enthusiastic volunteers rally around a fun and faith-filled theme to present important Bible stories and messages to the children who attend.
