CHILDREN AND YOUTH
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY PROGRAM
We have a multi-platform program for children this summer. Virtual and In person. Choose the option that works best for your family.
OPTION 1: On Zoom at Sundays at 9:00 AM
Share worship together as a family, parents and kids together. Each week there will be a short discussion and action take home to continue the talk about it at home. Zoom allows us to break into small groups. There will be a time for sharing joys and sorrows and to answer a question together.
OPTION 2: In Person Children's Worship and Activities
10: 00 AM Sundays
We are excited that will be able to offer in person programs on Sunday mornings beginning on July 4th.

Facts about In Person Programming
COVID Precautions for Children and Youth on Sunday Mornings.
All staff and volunteers in the Religious Education Program are vaccinated.
Masks will be required for everyone in the Religious Education Program. Exceptions: Babies and toddlers won't be required to wear masks. Marion and Kat when they are leading worship will remove their masks. When their masks are off for this brief time, they will be distanced from everyone.
Religious Education Programming will be outdoors, weather permitting.
Religious Education worship will be at Memorial Rock amphitheater, followed by outside activities on the playgrounds and grounds. Middle Schoolers will worship at the Rock and then break into their own group after worship. Exceptions: Nursery will be indoors in the church Nursery. Rainbow Preschool kids will be both inside the Rainbow Room and outside on the playground. Children will be permitted to go inside to use restrooms and other needs. If we need to be inside for weather related reasons we will be in the Community Room which is a large room with good ventilation.
You may take your children to the adult service in the Sanctuary
You may bring your child to the service and have them sit with you. Masks will be required indoors for all ages.
Mask Optional Area Outside During Coffee Hour
Everyone of all ages will be required to wear masks indoors across the whole campus. There are two outdoor options for families during coffehour after the services have ended.
Option One: people will be able to gather in the courtyard for conversation. Masks will be optional in this area.
Option Two: People will be able to gather on the playgrounds and in the RE area for conversation. Masks will be required in this area for all ages.
These two options allow families to make a choice that is best for them. If families are avoiding unmasked people they can exit the playground area directly without passing through the courtyard where people may be unmasked.
