What to expect for children on Sunday mornings
Upon arrival at Sunnyhill, families are welcome to go to the Sanctuary together to begin worship together. Nursery aged children (6 months through age 3) are invited to stay with parents or to play in our nursery, which is located right next door to the Sanctuary. School aged children should remain with parents until the Story for All Ages, which takes place towards the beginning of the service. At that time, all children are invited to the front to listen to a story before being “sung out” to their Religious Education classes.
Once they arrive in their classrooms, the classes generally follow this format:
Joys and Sorrows
Activity or Lesson
Extinguish the Chalice
Dismissed for Snack (downstairs)
Parents should pick up their children by 11:15 or let the Chalice Club Captain know that they will be staying for “Chalice Club” (11:15-12:15).
