We sing our children down from their families toward the chancel with the same song each week to begin Children's Church. The child(ren) that adopted the Spirit Box for the week present it to the pastor. The children put whatever they might choose in the box and the contents of the box are a surprise to the pastor, who interprets the context in light of the faith.
We close each children's time with the same prayer:"God be in my head. God be in my heart. God be on my left. God be on my right. God be beneath me. God be above me. God be in the faces of all who love me. Amen."
Children 2nd grade through 5th grade continue in worship with the congregation. Activity bags filled with Christian themed books and activity pages that relate to the sermon are available in the Narthex.
Children ages Pre-K through 1st grade go to Children’s Church for a Bible lesson, activities, and play.
