Children’s Liturgy of the Word
9:45-10:20 AM (approx.)
Children from 3 yrs.-5th grade begin in the worship service, but before the scriptures are read, we bless the children and they depart to hear the word of God in a simpler language. Afterwards, they return to receive Holy Communion with the whole church.
Our children's ministry teachers present the Bible through the Godly Play methodology. This is a montessorial approach to experiencing God's Word. Foundational to this approach are the beliefs that a child:
has an innate sense of the sacred
has a profound, intuitive knowledge of God
needs an adult to model how religious language works to make meaning and help find direction in life
needs an adult to witness their growing faith within a caring community
needs an adult to assist them in drawing out their own truth
