After worship, we will be offered an opportunity to sponsor Gyepes students.
10:30 am – Children’s Chapel (begin in Sanctuary) – Children are sung out from the Sanctuary after the Time for All Ages to participate in Children’s Chapel. We share a snack, light candles of joys and sorrows, and participate in activities, movement, crafts, and/or service projects based on our worship theme of the month: Courage and Change.
10:30 am – Nursery Care (Nursery) – Little ones and squirmy ones are welcome to come to the nursery to play during the service with our Redcross-certified teen babysitters. Listening devices are available for any parents/caregivers who wish to accompany children in the nursery.
11:30 am – Coffee Hour (Gathering Room) – Immediately following worship, Coffee Hour is the best casual way to meet other congregants, to learn more about church programs and social justice work, and to have some coffee, tea, and snacks. Stay for a few minutes after worship and say hello! (P.S. If you’re new, look for folks holding blue mugs – they love to chat!)
4:00 pm – Senior Youth Group (Gathering Room) is open to all high schoolers (9th – 12th grade) who want to be part of a place that welcomes them, for real.
