We asked, and families answered! What we heard back from our community is that there is a desire to both spend time with their children in worship, and to also connect more with our larger cathedral community across services. Our new time for children’s classes creates a bridge between families from both the 10 AM and the NOON Service, to foster greater connection across our entire cathedral family.
We are very excited to announce that Children’s Formation now begins at 11:15 AM (formerly 9:45 AM) on the third floor in Room 302. The third floor is now be the hub for all of our formation offerings – Children, Youth, & Adult Formation. Read more below.
Our children’s program serves kids in preschool through sixth grade (ages 3- 12). Our new meeting time allows families to sit together during 10:00 AM worship. At the time for Holy Communion, the children are called up first, then Hannah Teetor, our director of Children’s Ministries, escorts the children up to Room 302 for Telling God’s Stories. At the conclusion of the program at noon, parents can reconnect with their children in Room 302 or have the children escorted to the NOON Service for those families who expressed an interest in having their children join them at that time.
The curriculum, Telling God’s Stories, is a children’s program that inspires curiosity and wonder in kids by exploring their faith through the telling of Bible stories.
With children meeting from 11:15 AM, parents can attend our regularly scheduled adult forums on the same floor, or enjoy fellowship at coffee hour in the undercroft. This time change means that there are new ways to engage with one another as the Body of Christ, while allowing parents to partake of learning opportunities or to enjoy a more relaxed social time at coffee hour.
If you are interested in learning more, or registering your child for Telling God’s Stories, please email Hannah Teetor. Drop-ins are always welcome to attend.
