Children Visit the Food Pantry
A group of young West Siders will be making a trip to the food pantry again on June 1st, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We can take a maximum of 15 participants, ages 9-12. To ask questions or sign up, contact Penny Hogan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are two Sunday School opportunities for children. At 9:00 a.m., there is Sunday School for children from Pre-K through 5th Grade. Children are excused to go to their class after the Message for All Ages.
At 10:00 a.m., Sunday School begins during Worship. Children sit with their families, then children and teens are excused to go to classes after the Children's Message.
All children Pre-K through grade 5 are to be picked up by a parent from their Sunday school classrooms. As a safety precaution, children will not be dismissed to look for parents in the narthex. Thank you in advance for working with us to keep our children safe!

Families in Worship
We do recommend that young families sit in the left and right transepts for one terrific reason: Children can escape for a brief respite and sneak back in virtually unnoticed as they learn to share in the worship experience. Try it and you will see the difference! they are closer to the experience of worshiping when sitting in the transept, yet you are not "on display" for the entire service if an emergency arises, because we have side doors for you to use. As a mom who has been seated there in the past, I can tell you it was a lifesaver for me! Please share your experience with me once you have tried it. I love to hear back from our families.
Our building is beautiful and our sanctuary is classically reverent; our community is loving and our hearts are warm; our music is transcendent and haunting, and on occasion even a little jazzy! Worship is an experience for all ages, and we hope to meet your family's
needs and hopes in a church.
Mission and Stewardship
Our stewardship teaches the children the importance of
giving with their weekly offering. Our mission project include Thanksgiving
Food Baskets, Christmas Wish List, One Great Hour of Sharing, and other
programs appropriate for children.
Children's books, parenting books, videos, and much more
are available in our children's library on the second floor near the elevator.
