Grow, Proclaim, Serve! incorporates Bible stories, songs, activities, crafts, media, and games into a full faith experience for children. With Grow, Proclaim, Serve! our children develop the skills to unlock the Bible message and grow their faith by leaps and bounds.
The program nourishes and enriches children's faith, with two classes (preschool and elementary age) so they can proclaim the good news of God's love and serve God and neighbor. Children will realize that their faith goes with them as they grow.
Children are encouraged to bring their favorite children's Bible with them to worship or they can pick one up from an usher on the way into the sanctuary.
All our volunteers are safe-sanctuary certified and the program reflects safe-sanctuary practices.
Grades Preschool - 5th:
Time: 10:00 AM on Sunday
Children in grades 5 and under begin the morning in church with their families. Near the beginning of the service, they are invited up to the front of the sanctuary for a time of “Opening the Word with Children.” At its conclusion, they leave for their appropriate classes.
Junior & Senior High:
Time: 8:30 AM on Sunday
Junior and Senior High youth meet separately before the worship service. Classes last one hour and a light breakfast is served.
Time: 8:40 AM, most Sundays during the school year, and some evenings.
Interested Adults meet frequently to engage contemporary Christian issues and traditions. Classes are usually held in the St. Marie Parlor on Sundays. Studies are also offered on weekday evenings at the Church, at the Parsonage or in members' homes. Check the Church Calendar for meeting times and locations.
