Children are a big part of our congregational life at St. John’s Grace, and we see ourselves as a multi-generational “family” church. Yet family means many things: adoptive families, foster families, single parent families, two parent families, families with same sex parents, families caring for elders and elders caring for families. You will find all kinds of families here at St. John’s Grace UCC.
Here’s just a bit of info about how children are included in our community.
Children are always welcomed to remain in the sanctuary during worship.
Babies and children are always welcome to remain in worship with their parents. We also provide Nursery Care in our nursery each Sunday for children 4 & under. Care is provided by volunteers from the congregation.
Every Sunday at 9:30 – 10:15 AM, St. John’s Grace conducts Church School for ages 3 – 12.
Church School resumed September 11, 2022.
We use a one-room curriculum. ‘Celebrate Wonder‘ is an open-ended exploration and inquiry of the Bible. This fall we will be exploring Hannah, Samuel, David and Isaiah.
Through experimental activities, spiritual practices and reflection, games, music, and FUN we will create a safe space for children to ask questions and seek God in their own way!
We definitely hope your child (or grandchild) will be involved.
