Family Ministries

Sunday Mornings

Family Ministries offers youth and children's programming every Sunday morning, from September through May, as we seek to nurture healthy children and strong, faithful families.

Little Lambs • 9:30 am

Little Lambs Nursery (ages 0-2)
Our nursery is staffed with professional childcare workers who foster a fun, caring space for the youngest ones in our congregation. Little Lambs is dedicated to providing a nurturing, faith-based environment for our infants and toddlers. Through story, song, and play, they learn the most foundational truth of all: I am loved. The Little Lambs Nursery is open all morning long, until 12:30 pm.

Sunday School • 9:30 am

All children in preschool through fifth grade are invited to join us in the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center and discover their place in God’s story.

Preschool Sunday School (ages 3-5)
Each week our preschoolers study the God Loves Me Bible story books as they work through 52 Bible stories at an age-appropriate level. There is also time for snacks, crafts and free play!

Elementary Sunday School (Kindergarten—Grade 5)
This fall our elementary classes will use the Follow Me curriculum, beginning with a four-week series called “Sing A New Song!” Among the many types of spiritual practices, the practice of singing together may be the most natural and the easiest to follow. Most children enjoy singing. Just as baby birds learn their songs by listening and singing back to adults, children learn to sing by singing! They also learn the truths of our faith in songs long before they can put those beliefs into words.

Youth Group (Grades 6—12)
This is a sacred time for our youth to share their highs and lows of the past week and reflect on God’s word. Youth worship in Chapel Church on the last Sunday of the month.

Children’s Choir • 10:15 am

Led by Dr. Eugenia Yau and her talented children’s music staff, our Children’s Choir meets weekly to experience God’s love through music. Choristers learn to read music, develop good singing habits and appreciate the many styles of sacred repertoire. Children in preschool through fifth grade are invited to join us for weekly rehearsals Sundays at 10:15 am from September through May. Our Children’s Choir regularly sings in worship and presents the Christmas Pageant in December.

Children’s Church • 11:15 am

All children in preschool through second grade leave the Sanctuary following the Litany of Parting for their own time of worship in Kirkland Chapel and the Christian Education Center. Using the “Godly Play” model, children sing, hear God’s stories, and reflect on what they’ve learned.
