Children

Central seeks to provide a welcoming place for families with children, to help children know and feel the love of God, and to help parents guide their children in developing their faith.

Sunday Mornings

Childcare - Central provides a nursery staffed by professional childcare workers for children age 3 and under during the Sunday School hour. There are separate rooms for infants, for walking toddlers, and children age 2 and up. All rooms are located on the first floor of the Campbell-Eagan Building and open at 9:30 a.m. Parents are given pagers so that the nursery staff can notify them if their child is upset or ill.

Sunday School - Children age 3 and older may attend their own Sunday School classes on the second floor of the Oglesby Education Building.

We use the Godly Play curriculum.

Extended Session - During the worship hour, when more children are present, volunteers from the congregation assist the paid childcare staff. Extended Session is open to children age 6 and younger.

All parents of children in this age group are assigned volunteer Sundays. An online schedule is posted and parents who cannot serve their designated Sunday can trade Sundays with another parent and notify the childcare coordinator.

Children in Worship - Central is committed to welcoming children as full participants in our worship services. Children of any age are always welcome in worship with their parents. Families often serve together as ushers and greeters, by ringing the church bell, and bringing forward communion elements. Older children also enjoy serving as lectors offering the Scripture readings.

Sunday Lunch - Lunch is served in Tull Hall each Sunday immediately following the worship service. Families with young children are expected and encouraged to “cut in line” and get their food earlier. The cost is $7 for adults and $3 for children over age 2.

Volunteers

If you are a member of Central, please consider volunteering your time to spend a Sunday caring for some of our younger members. This experience is a great way to fulfill your baptismal vow to help nurture the children of our congregation as they grow in the faith.
