Children’s Religious Education
Every Sunday, the children start off the morning with their family in the sanctuary together. They listen to music and sing a song or two with everyone else. One child each Sunday is invited to light the Children’s Chalice along with an adult. After the Story for All Ages, the children are sung out and they go to their own room with their teacher. Near the end of the service they rejoin the congregation and sing our ending song “Carry the Flame”.
