Welcome to Grades 1-4!
New kids are welcome any time!
Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22: 37-39
What to expect:
Faith Formation Grades 1-4 meets during worship on Saturdays at 5:30, Sundays at 9:00, 10:30/10:40 a.m. from Sept. to mid-May.
- Kids begin in worship with their parents until the pastor calls the children forward for”Time with Children.” After the “Time with Children,” parents bring their kids downstairs to Room 117. We begin with a worship time, and each grade has something to do! We take an offering, sing, have a small-group prayer and then join together in the Lord’s Prayer.
- Kids then separate by age groups into different activities based on the Bible story (or we may stay all together and work on a service project). Activities may be art projects, drama, Bible study (for grades 3-4), puppets or games.
- Parents and other adults support Faith Formation Grades 1-4 by being Faith Coaches (small group leaders for a grade) or Workshop Guides (directing a craft or activity) for a 2-3 month session during the school year.
