Discipleship: Journeying with Jesus
Sundays at 9 & 11:15 am for potty-trained children ages 3-7
Education Building - Upstairs
Discipleship is a fun and engaging 30-minute children's program that teaches the Bible through liturgy, stories, and activities, and shares how we can all grow up to be like Jesus! DiscipleShip happens during the 9 and 11:15 am Sunday worship services. Drop your child(ren) off before the worship service, and after the program, a trained volunteer or staff member will bring your child(ren) back into the service where you are worshipping, before communion--so that you may take communion together as a family. As a precaution, hand sanitizer is available in every room, unvaccinated volunteers are required to masks. For children and vaccinated volunteers, masks are optional!
