Dear Families,

Over the past 17 months we have carefully ridden the Covid waves, sharing Children’s Moments in worship and occasional Children’s Church Gatherings on zoom. We delivered grab bags of activities to families as we remained at home.

As the 2021-22 traditional school year begins, we recognize each family has their own comfort level with returning to in-person events. We continue to mask and offer physical distance options in our worship space. Margo Schaffer, our nursery director, is ready to receive any visitors who may attend with infants and toddlers. After Labor Day, we hope to start up Children’s Church 2.0, as with all things, pending any need for changes in health and safety precautions.


Beginning September 12, 2021, children ages preschool through grade 5 will be welcome to come to worship (in masks) with their families as always. Following the Children’s Moment in worship, they will have the option of time together, continuing with safety protocols in place (provided we have two adult volunteers* to accompany them). We will continue to assess as conditions change.

We have a fun, thoughtful, and engaging youth program for kids

in 6th - 12th grade. Our staff, advisers, and youth seek to create a sacred space where youth are heard, valued, accepted, challenged, and encouraged in questions of faith. We welcome and affirm all.

We meet most Sundays following worship, 11:30-1:30, for lunch, fellowship, and program.
