Religious Education for Children
Religious education classes are offered on first and third Sundays for elementary-age children. Parents are asked to bring their children into the service. After the Time for All Ages, teachers will lead children to their classroom (lower level). Families are always welcome to have their children stay with them in the worship service.
Fifth Sunday worship services are intentionally multi-generational. No separate religious education classes are offered as we hope families will attend the service together. Child care is available every Sunday for babies and preschoolers.
The 2016/17 Church Year in Evergreen
Nursery, toddler and preschool care for infants through 3-year-olds is provided by our paid caregivers and sometimes additional volunteers. Our youngest children enjoy an hour of supervised play and care. Parents and guardians are invited to come in, meet the staff and stay as long as you like. We know your trust and comfort are integral to your youngsters feeling safe and comfortable in our Nursery.
Our four year olds and up group will use curriculum we are creating that explores the same monthly themes used in Sunday worship services. The group is lead by volunteers and will explore the themes using age-appropriate activities, stories and songs. Our hope is that conversations between children, parents, grandparents and guardians will take place on the way home from JUC Evergreen as well as throughout the week. The church year will begin with an exploration of what it means to be people of Covenant.
