At both services, the children leave the sanctuary with their leaders and go to the Fellowship Hall to experience an age-appropriate lesson based on the weekly church lesson. This includes, a story, video, games and activities.

At 5:00 pm on Christmas Eve, a special worship service is held for families with young children. A child appropriate Christmas message is given along with a little gift to take home. A special offering is taken for a designated outreach mission of the church.

Fourth Sunday of Advent
All children and youth come together to lead the 11:00 am service in worship and song for this special Christmas celebration.


Rehearsals are held during The Launching Point and UMYF.

During the Sunday school hour families are invited to walk along Main Street waving palms. The children then lead the processional for the 11:00 am service. This gives them an opportunity to participate in worship and it enriches the worship experience.
