Writing your Credo




Sundays
Childrens' Chapel is part of Sunday Service!*

This year, children and youth 12 and older will be encouraged to remain with us, in the auditorium or on ZOOM, each week. There will be a short children’s sermon rather than a children’s story on most weeks (some outside guests may still use stories) and you’ll notice the meditation has been moved to the first half of the service so that even the smallest children can join us. The chalice lighting song sung by the children will be used for frequent chalice lightings, and children will be doing some of the chalice lighting readings when they are used. We will still sing out the smallest children for monitored play and community building.

*Registration is not required
