Children Worship and Wonder is offered for children in Pre-K through second grade during the adult worship time. Children hear Bible stories and learn about God while experiencing the presence of God. The stories are told in a way that allows the listeners to enter into the stories and form responses out of their own life experiences. They learn the meaning of church traditions and have opportunities to participate in worship practices.
Every other week a group of members meet with pastoral staff to share concerns about those in the congregation who are being challenged in their journey. Visits of care, notes of support, respites for caregivers and more are organized by these committed members.
A handbell choir meets Monday evenings at 5:30 pm seasonally to prepare music for Sunday worship. Call Jeannie Wilhelm in the church office or check the calendar for info.
A meditation group meets seasonally on Monday afternoons. Using spiritual practices for mindfulness. Our meditation group meets each Monday afternoon at 1:30 at the church.
