FCC Children’s Ministries Vision
We have a passion to see children follow Jesus every day. Our Children’s Ministries are rooted in the concept that learning to follow Jesus must engage the imagination and hearts of children. FCC offers children creative learning environments, age appropriate teaching methods, worship that engages and inspires, and opportunities to confidently serve others.
After spending most of 2020-2021 in isolation we’re eager for the return of some consistency, but ever mindful of the safety of our children and teachers in times which remains delicate. Following the success of our all-outdoor and masked VBS model, we feel confident in carrying forward a similar plan for Sunday School, beginning September 12, 2021 at 10 a.m.
We’re excited to share our new curriculum which builds on “Godly Play” ideas and coordinating visual pieces. Children will be led into a deeper dive of the day’s Bible story in a way which captivates their minds and leaves them with wonder in their hearts. Stories are paired with intentionally simple coordinating images. This approach encourages learners to process the story and imagine themselves as a part of God’s story, in which we all belong. And of course, like always, we’ll have fun! Each Sunday we’ll enjoy a creative activity cooresponding with our lesson.
Our New Fall Schedule
Masks are required to protect our vulnerable and unvaccinated.
Children’s Worship @ 10 a.m.
(replaces 11 a.m. Sunday School)
Children will begin worship with their families in the Sanctuary* at 10 a.m. Following a time with the children, they will be released to Children’s worship at approximately 10:20. Children will remain outside as long as weather permits. Due to the new time and current climate, snack will not be provided, but water will be available.
*If you are not comfortable having your children inside the Sanctuary, volunteers will be available at the playground for drop-off while you attend worship. Your children will then join the others as they leave the Sanctuary.
1st Sundays: Communion
On the first Sunday of each month, Children’s Worship will conclude in time for children to be ushered back into the Sanctuary to participate in Holy Communion with their families. We ask that you sit on the left side of the Sanctuary (when walking in the doors from the Gathering Space) so that your children can quietly enter and look for you without disrupting the service.
5th Sundays: All-Church Worship
For the 3 months that have a 5th Sunday (October, January, and May), we will have multi-generational All-Church Worship with special content geared toward younger audiences. Our Nursery will be available for children up to 2 years of age for those who are unable to sit through worship.
