WE LOVE KIDS!

 

Children are welcome at COGS and we encourage parents to bring children of all ages to our worship services. Our nursery is open with loving, experienced caregivers.  Masks are optional at this time. Social distancing is optional with plenty of seating available. 

 

Sunday School 

 

Children are welcome at COGS and we encourage parents to bring children of all ages to our worship services. 

 

Pre-School - 5Th Grade 

 

Sunday School is in session following "Children's Time" during our 11 AM Worship Service. Classes emphasize the teachings of Jesus, inclusion, selfless love for others, peace, social justice, love of creation, and life-long learning. Classes are divided by grade level and are led by trained teachers. Classes include a snack and a lesson, followed by an activity to supplement the lesson.

 

One of the highlights of our 11:00 AM service on Sundays is the Children's Message. Children join us to hear a special message from Pastor Sarah and participate in a unison prayer with the congregation.

 

Options for Parents, Caregivers, and Children to attend our 11:00 AM in-person worship. 

 

Option #1: You are welcome to have your children sit with you in the sanctuary, we have a bag of activity goodies for each child.

Option #2: We have a table at the back of the sanctuary with coloring books, and activities. This is a quiet area with seating for adults along the back wall.

Option #3: After Children's Time your child between the ages of 5 and 12 may join us for Sunday School.
