Our worship service and children and youth activities are now in person. We are following COVID-19 CDC guidelines such as wearing masks, social distancing, and using air filtration in our children and youth rooms.

Our Children's Program:

Our Godly Play® program for children ages K-6 meets during the church service from 10:15-11:10am. Godly Play® uses a creative curriculum with a Montessori foundation to explore the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. Through story, wondering, and play, children are able to explore larger dimensions of belief and theological meaning.

The above photo is part of our Godly Play group. We meet every Sunday during the worship service on the second floor, across from the nursery.  

Our Youth Program:

Our middle school and high school students meet weekly on Sunday at 9:00-9:50 am. We have a creative curriculum with a mix of Godly Play stories, service activities, discussions, and hands-on, interactive group projects.

If you know a curious middle school or high school student who wants to learn about themselves, religion, and have fun, please come! Our group is open to you. We welcome and affirm young people who are LGBTQ+ and young people of all backgrounds.
