Our Sunday morning Adult Christian Exploration (ACE) programs take place in the Seim Room, beginning at 10:15am on Sunday mornings from September through May. Advanced sign-up or consecutive Sunday attendance is not required. Simply grab a cup of coffee and join us on the second floor of the Education Bldg. Childcare is offered in Room 108 during these programs. Watch for an August issue of Gatherings for details regarding the start of the ACE program.
Reflective Chapel Services – We have a new opportunity to slow down, be quiet, and reflect on dimensions of spiritual health. All are invited to attend the Reflective Services on specific Sundays (schedule listed below) at 8:30am in the Chapel. They are 45 minutes, and offer wisdom, silence, reflection, and optional sharing. This offering results from our recent strategic planning initiative to “create new avenues to explore and deepen our spirituality together.” and is part of our Christian Ventures Committee. The reflective services are open to all, please join us whenever your schedule allows.
Sunday School is offered year-round during our Sunday morning worship services. Children are usually dismissed after the First Steps lesson, which takes place early in the service. A whiteboard outside the Light Court in the Education Building lists classroom locations for the following classes: Three & Four Year Olds, Kindergarteners-First Grade, 2/3rd Grades, 4/5th Grades, 6/7th Grades and 8th Grade Confirmands. (During the summer months, Sunday school is offered through fifth grade only.)
Our hope in all of the Sunday School classes is to convey to the children that they are beloved children of God. As a church family, we respond to that love in the way we care for ourselves, each other, our neighbors locally and globally, and God’s world. In our classes, we practice together all those things that loving Christians do – pray, give thanks, comfort, defend, forgive and repent – in a safe and supportive atmosphere. And of course, we learn from (not just about) the Biblical stories of people who have experienced God’s power and love in their messy lives.
Infant and childcare is offered all morning for children ages two and under. More information regarding our Sunday School program can be found here.
