Children’s Ministries

Children are invited to participate in the full life of the congregation.  During worship, children are always welcome to remain with their families, or they may choose to participate in our Sunday morning children’s experiences:

Register for KidCheck

We take the safety of our children seriously.  Begining June 1, we will launch our new KidCheck system to check children in and out of ministries, print nametags including discreet health and safety information, and automate emergency contact when needed.

For more Information

If your children want to participate or if you are interested in working with the children of the congregation, we would love to have you experience the joy of this ministry!  Contact Kathy Hanna at 503-709-2135, or the church office.

Singing Time

Immediately following the Children’s story time in worship, children gather in the parlor to sing songs together, led by our Music Ministries Leader, Betty Busch.  Following singing, children are welcome to go on to the Nursery, Godly Play or back to worship with their families.

Godly Play

Godly Play materials are designed for children ages kindergarten through 5th grade

On Sunday mornings, the children gather on the stage in the Fellowship Hall following the Singing Time to explore scripture and spiritual life through storytelling and creative play.   During Spring and Summer, we often head out to the garden during Godly Play.

Nursery Care

Child care is available in our nursery during Sunday morning class and worship and also during many other church events.  Infants through preschool aged children are cared for by our Leader of Childcare Ministries and a Nursery Assistant and/or nursery shepherd who have been background checked and safe sanctuary trained.
