Kairos is offered on Sunday mornings at 10am from September through May. The 2016-17 program year begins on September 25th; please register by September 18th!

Children’s formation takes place in the undercroft. 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.

Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers 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.

Kindergarteners & 1st 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, Erin Horvat, and Minturn Osborne.

2nd & 3rd 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. Their leaders are Howard Goldstein and Leigh Ashbrook.

4th & 5th 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 leaders are Stephanie McNeil and Dorrie Schenkel.
