begins in our Sunday morning worship service at 9:30 am. Children attend worship with their families and are invited to come forward for a Kids.Connect message. They then follow their teachers to their classrooms, where from 9:45-10:45 they learn a Biblical story that is taught in a multi-dimensional format. We follow the Deep Blue curriculum published by Cokesbury, our United Methodist publishing house. Deep Blue includes Bible stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video, storytelling and active games – combined into a living faith experience helping children discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ!

To begin, join us on March 25 at 9:30 a.m. for Palm Sunday worship! We will have a palm parade and celebrate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, even as we prepare ourselves to walk with him during Holy Week.

Children, join us on Easter Sunday at 9:30 a.m. (between worship services) for an Easter egg hunt! Bring your egg-hunting skills and a basket to collect your eggs in.

This Lenten season we are reading The Last Week by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, an in-depth look at the Gospel of Mark’s account of the week leading up to Easter. Sermons in Lent will also follow the readings.
