Sunday Morning Schedule — September through May

9:45 am Worship in the Sanctuary

FCC loves to have people of all ages present for worship! We have worship activity bags in the Narthex, a Children’s Message each week, and the “Prayground” in the front corners of the Sanctuary where children can play, relax and witness worship up close.

Children of all ages begin in Worship.  Following Time with Children, there are three choices: 

  • Children age 4 and above may attend Children’s Choir Practice.  Katie VanHeel will meet the children in the Narthex and escort them to Promised Land for Practice until 10:45. They will be escorted back to Gathering Space for treats and time with parents before Sunday School at 11 am.  We love hearing our children sing in worship and encourage everyone to attend!

  • Wigglers: Some young children may find it difficult to stay the entire worship service. Preschool age children may leave worship following “Time with Children” and will be escorted to the Nursery story for creative play, supervised by our paid Nursery staff. All Children remain in worship on Communion Sundays.   

  • Children may stay in worship with their parents, making quiet use of the PrayGrounds areas and the worship activity bags.

One Worship for All

We feel that worship is not complete without the presence and participation of our children and young adults. FCC is committed to doing its best to provide worship that engages children and youth. We work to include children and youth as liturgists, musicians and greeters. From “Time with Children” (the children’s message) to Communion, we intend for at least one component of worship to engage our younger worshipers. Worship activity bulletins are provided for children each Sunday morning so that they can learn the songs, prayers and stories of our faith in the worshiping community. Young ears and hearts pick up far more than we give them credit for. As they worship alongside their parents and others they learn what adults value and pay attention to the priorities they set.
