PHILOSOPHY

“When you are here, the church is filled with a joyful noise. When you are here, the Body of Christ is more fully present. When you are here, we are reminded that this worship thing we do isn’t about bible study or personal, quiet contemplation but coming together to worship as a community where all are welcome, where we share in the Word and Sacrament together.” – words from Dear Parents with Young Children in Church

 

YOUNGER CHILDREN

Our bright and well stocked nursery is available for children ages 2 months up to age 6 during our 10AM service. Our nursery is located downstairs just off of our parish hall. Our nursery care providers are Aiche Danioko and Goda Katkute. Aiche is from Mali and Goda is from Lithuania. They are part of Greenheart International Exchange Program based in Chicago.

 

OLDER CHILDREN

A children’s corner can be found in the Narthex as you enter the church. There, children will find worship bags with coloring crayons and small hand held activities that encourage creativity. They can also choose from a selection of books as well as pick-up their own children’s specific bulletin for the day.

 

SPECIAL OCCASIONS & HOLIDAYS
