“Different Gifts/ Different Hats”
Christian Nurture Opportunities
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve, but we all serve the same Lord. And there are different ways God works in people, but it is the same God who works in all of us to do everything. Something from the Spirit can be seen in each person. The Spirit gives this to each one to help others. The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak with wisdom. And the same Spirit gives another person the ability to speak with knowledge. The same Spirit gives faith to one person and to another he gives gifts of healing. The Spirit gives to one person the power to do miracles, to another the ability to prophesy, and to another the ability to judge what is from the Spirit and what is not. The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak in different kinds of languages, and to another the ability to interpret those languages. One Spirit, the same Spirit, does all these things. The Spirit decides what to give each one. “ – 1 Corinthians 12: 4-1 (EV)
Infants and Toddlers
Childcare is provided, beginning at 9:30. Most parents prefer to keep infants with them during worship, which is certainly allowable, but one and two-year-olds meet on the first floor in the toddler room at the end of the hall. Skilled caretakers are able to contact ushers during worship, should parents need to be reached.
Children, and Middle Schoolers
This age group meets on the second floor of the Education Building. Second, third, fourth and fifth graders will participate in “Godly Play”. Others will be using the PC(USA) curriculum, “We Believe”. Middle schoolers will be using the Augsburg curriculum, echo: the story, which highlight twelve important biblical narratives with language from our Reformed Tradition. Visitors are always welcome.
High schoolers (grades 9-12) meet downstairs in the church basement youth room, using the new lectionary study guide, “Feasting on the Word” to learn about the scriptures for the day being used in worship. Visitors are welcome here, as well.
All children are welcome in worship!
Nursery care for children 3-6 years of age is provided during worship on the second floor of the Education Building. These children join worship following the sermon for the remainder of the service. Childcare for infants – 2 years continues in the toddler room.
There is a changing table in the narthex to the left as you exit the rear of the sanctuary.
Worship activity bags for children are available in the foyer and companion youth activity bulletins are available from the ushers.
