Children’s Formation for 1st through 6th Grade

Kairos is offered on Sunday mornings at 10am from September through May. The 2017-18 program year begins on September 24th; please register by September 17th!

This word kairos in Greek signifies God’s time, which is in contrast to chronos (chronological time). Together we will explore and learn about God through creative activities focused on scripture, theology, and prayer. Transformation occurs in these kairos moments.

Children’s formation takes place in the lower level of the church. We have a dedicated team of teachers who follow a curriculum that fosters prayer, biblical exploration, knowledge of our tradition, development of leadership skills, and places an emphasis on fun and fellowship.

Register for Kairos and Treble Choir 2017-18!

Infants, toddlers, preschoolers and Kindergartners and their families join our worship.together service at 10:15 a.m., which includes music, movement, stories, prayers, and a simple introduction to communion! Children are welcome at ALL services. In addition, childcare is available during the 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. services.

1st & 2nd Graders participate in a hands-on curriculum as they explore God’s love for us as revealed through the stories of the Hebrew Bible. Their time together includes songs, story-telling, and prayers. Their leaders are Barbara Baumgartner and Minturn Osborne.

3rd & 4th Graders build on their foundation of Bible stories to continue exploring liturgical seasons and the sacraments, which give us insight into the life of Jesus and the experience of the Church.

5th & 6th Graders use the Poems, Prayers and Promises series to take a journey through the Hebrew Bible, focusing on themes by watching a witty video, exploring biblical texts, and creating projects that range from games to art and more. Their leader is Stephanie McNeil.
