Nursery: Newborns through 5 years old
Following Jesus: Children Pre-K through 5th Grade, Room 352
Our Children’s Ministry brings children aged 4 through 5th grade together this year. Children will hear and experience weekly stories of the New Testament, and respond with wonder, spirituality, and creativity. Following Jesus is a curriculum based on the Children Worship and Wonder model, but brings a deeper focus to Jesus’ life and teachings.
We foster spirituality and a sense of the sacred in a safe and caring space.
Children Worship & Wonder curriculum is designed to help children experience worship apart from the congregation so they become able to worship meaningfully with the congregation. The process is designed to quiet and slow down the pace so that children can experience the presence of God with a sense of awe, mystery, imagination and wonder.
The Worship & Wonder teaching process is based on Montessori principles and utilizes the oral tradition of storytelling, using carved wooden figures. In the two Children’s Worship Centers, the children have the opportunity to respond to the story through hands on work with the wooden figures or with creative activities such as painting, drawing, sculpting with play dough, collage making and so forth. The children then return to a circle where they have a “feast” (an introduction to communion) and close with prayer and a blessing for each child.
