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 all the children in our care seriously.  This summer we launched our new KidCheck system to check children in and out of all our ministries – from Sunday mornings to weekday evenings to camps and other special events.   We print name tags including discreet health and safety information and parent claim tags.  We also automate emergency contact when needed or send a quick text to let you know if your child needs you.  Create an account online now and then look for the check-in station to quickly print name tags when you arrive!

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, kathy_hanna71@yahoo.com 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 and projects.   

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.
