Exploring the Sacrament of Baptism

Our Galatians Group (first grade) will be spending three weeks exploring the Sacrament of Baptism. They will learn about 9 symbols related to baptism, hear Biblical stories about water, and talk about our identity as Children of God. Sunday School leaders will guide children through these sessions on January 20, 27 and Feb. 3

Buddy Sunday is Nov. 4

Nov 4 is Buddy Sunday; a time when older and younger children get to meet each other and begin to build recognition and  community through prayer and sharing a Bible story together. Our goal for this day is for older children to act as mentors to the younger children and for younger children to meet older children to include in their faith community.

The Galatians Group (1st grade) will meet with the 5th grade group during Sunday School.

We invite  the children to pray for each other during the week. Children will bring home a Buddy Book which names their new church friend.

Buddy Sunday – Dec. 3, 2017

On Dec 3, the older children visited the young groups of Sunday School. They shared a scripture then were paired up with a buddy to talk about the scripture and get to know each other. Great things happened when young children and older children met. Older children found the role of buddy leader to be fun to fulfill. Younger children were pleased to have the attention of an older child. Each child now has the name of another child to pray for and look for on Sunday mornings.

5th Grade visited the 1st Grade:

Young Children and Worship Celebration for 1st Graders

On Sunday, August 13, during Young Children & Worship (for both the 8:30 and 11:00 worship services), we will recognize our YC&W friends who are entering 1st grade this August.  They have completed their time in YC&W and, starting August 20, they are ready to begin attending worship in the Sanctuary with you for the full hour (some have already started!). Parents are invited to attend with your child.

Relationships matter—small groups offer everyone a chance to listen and share.

Small groups encourage children to share together and to listen with intentionality. Our Galatians group (first grade) has been learning about the Sacrament of Baptism as part of their Milestone for this year. They gathered on Jan. 8 with their families to hear Pastor Todd talk about the meaning of baptism and the symbols on the Baptismal font.

In the weeks following, they met in small groups to explore different aspects, stories, and symbols of baptism. The conversations were rich as groups members shared together.
