Other events and programs for children
In addition to the weekly scheduled children’s educational activities, each June we operate a Vacation Bible School which is open to the public.
Children in 2nd grade or older receive training in preparation to participate in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Worship leader training is offered for our 2nd through 5th graders who serve as acolytes and liturgists.
Once a month, SMASH happens! This popular program (25 to 30 children in attendance) is an activity for 1st through 5th graders combining sports, music, arts, service, and “hangout” time and offers a time for children to be nurtured in faith by building relationships with a variety of adults of all ages.
The annual “Trunk or Treat” and the Advent Fair are meaningful events for our children and the entire congregation.
