Children's Faith Formation
Our theme this year is "Walk with God". We will be encouraging everyone to remember that God is a part of their lives at all times and will help them help themselves and others. We will be using Seasons of the Spirit, a liturgy-based curriculum, for all grade levels. 5gh graders will use a variation on this curriculum, A Place for Everyone.
All of us begin worship at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary and are dismissed to class after the children's sermon. Children's offering is collected in the "Miracle Jar" as children proceed to class. Offering envelopes are available in the Sanctuary. The children's offering supports Heifer International.
Children, ages 4-2nd grade participate in Cherub Choir during their Faith Formation Time in the Chapel with the Children’s Music Director, Ms. Angela Bruzina. Children grades 3-5 rehearse with her for Covenant Choir after worship until 11:30 AM in the Chapel. Rehearsals for the Youth Choir, grades 6-12, will be announced at a future time.
Our youngest “members” can be watched during worship in the Nursery (Main level) by Jacqueline Reasor, our staff caregiver. Please check in your child and include any necessary info or hygiene supplies for Jacqueline. Parents of our infants and toddlers are encouraged to help out in the Nursery once a month. Dale Spooner is the coordinator of the Nursery helpers.
Senior Highs are welcome to help with the Faith Formation groups, in the Nursery, with worship, or "just' enjoy worship in the Sanctuary each Sunday. Sign-up sheets are available, see Mrs. Komperda.

Helping Others Help Themselves
Did you know that the Children’s offerings each Sunday helps support Heifer International, an organization that helps people around the world become self-sufficient by providing them with farm animals, trees, water, and other necessities to sustain their lives and those of their neighbors? Each child is given a package of envelopes to be used for their offering each week. Please use them so that we will include their giving with your Family Pledge. Their offerings go into the Miracle Jar because that’s exactly what it creates for others around the world.
If you did not get your new box of offertory envelopes for your child, they are available in the children's Faith Formation classes or in the church office.
Have you been missing the most satisfying feeling of holding a baby, playing with blocks, or singing nursery rhymes? If so, why not sign up to help Jacqueline Reasor in our LCC Nursery during worship some Sunday. We sometimes have up to 10 little ones in Nursery on Sunday morning! The sign-up sheet is located in the Nursery, or let Dale Spooner know of your interest.
