Children in Worship

During the regular school year, children begin each Sunday worshipping with the congregation at 9am. Following the children's message, children ages 3yrs - 2nd grade are invited to attend a special, age-appropriate worship service in the Children in Worship Room. During the summer, children remain in the worship service.  Parents are encouraged to help their younger children choose an activity bag available on wooden posts in the narthex to use during the worship service.


The children's church school offerings go to support the Congo mission of the PC(USA). Vacation Bible School (VBS) also provides the opportunity for children to give to missions, i.e. the Storehouse at St. John's Episcopal Church, a local food pantry.
