Pizza Church 2018-2019                     

We had so much fun last year we are doing it again!  Pizza Church 2018-2019 begins Sunday, October 7th.

This year the younger kids will explore Bible stories using a curriculum called The Path.  Our teens will use a program called Confirm Not Conform, to help  them think through a decision to be confirmed when  the bishop comes in 2020.

Children at Worship:


godly-play-wonderWe welcome children to attend all of our services and welcome their joyful noises too.  For those who are wiggly, there are activities on a cart in the narthex and some picture books that you are welcome to take with you into the worship service.  If you need to rock your little one, we invite you to try out our glider located in the narthex so that you can give the baby some quiet, but can still see what is going on in the service.  You know your child best, but sometimes sitting nearer to the front of the church helps children have something to watch. 

                On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, children ages 3-7 are invited to attend a modified worship experience based on the program Godly Play in the lower level education hallway. 

                On the 3rd Sunday, our service is a bit shorter and an interactive sermon suitable for children is offered.  Sometimes the kids also come up to the altar for the Eucharistic Prayer and consecration of the bread and wine.
