Children's RE from A-Z
Children and youth begin each Sunday in the Sanctuary with their families. Most Sundays, they will recess to RE Classes after the Time for All Ages. The Nursery and Early Childhood rooms will welcome the little ones during this time if parents prefer.
Consistent attendance helps children build on previous experiences and develop rapport with classmates and teachers. For the best experience, please bring your child to church regularly.
Dismissal & Pick-Up
Older children will be dismissed immediately after class ends. For safety, children in the nursery through 2nd grade must be picked up by their adult at 10:15 a.m. or 12:15 p.m. If someone other than a parent or guardian will be retrieving a child, written permission must be given to the DRE to keep on file.
One adult MUST be in the building while their child is onsite. If this is someone other than those noted on the registration form, there must be written notice on file.
L.O.V.E.D Winterim Program: “Living Our Values Every Day”
Programming is offered for 2-4 Sundays across the age range each January on a topic of social relevancy. Visit the L.O.V.E.D info page for this year’s focus.
MULTI-GENERATIONAL Sunday Services
Children and youth are invited to attend the entire worship service in the sanctuary several times a year. Your family won’t want to miss these services, which are designed to be engaging for people of all ages! The Nursery and Early Childhood class will also be available for children under age six.
Also known as Our Whole Lives, this award-winning values-based Sexuality Education program is offered annually to 8th grade children of members. See more information here.
All children must be registered annually for our RE Program. Click the link above for information and forms.
Children’s safety is important to us. Volunteers are screened, monitored and supported by professional staff.
From the second Sunday in June through the first Sunday in September, we offer fun activities in a more relaxed environment.
Welcome! Parents visiting with children should seek out the RE Assistant on the lower level prior to the service. Please bring your filled-in RE Visitor Form.
Inspire a child and grow your own faith! Ours is a volunteer-driven program: we need adults like you to join in the good work of guiding young people in discovering their values and beliefs. Please complete and submit the volunteer section of the RE Registration form or talk to our DRE to discuss opportunities to serve.
Children and youth join their families in the sanctuary for a “Time for All Ages” at the beginning of each service from September-May.
- The Time for All Ages includes music, rituals, and stories intended to nurture the spirit.
- Occasionally we will hold full Multi-generational Services intended to engage the hearts and minds of people of all ages.
- Signs at church entrances will let you know if children are joining us for all or part of the service that day.
