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.
