SUNDAY WORSHIP

 

Nursery Care for Infants & Toddlers

Infants and Toddlers through the age of 2 are accepted into the nursery before and during all three Sunday services where they participate in fun, age-focused play and learning.  Pagers are available so parents can be alerted if they need to return to the nursery.  If you prefer to stay with your child during worship, a comfort room is available on the lower level.  The room is equipped with a live feed of the service as well as toys, rocking chairs, changing table and supplies.  First time bringing your child to church?

 Sunday School for 2 to 3 Year Olds

Children ages 2 and 3 years are welcomed into a special pre-school Sunday School just for them.  They play, learn and celebrate God’s love for them through music, crafts and Bible stories.  They also can participate in the annual Christmas plays or pageants.  First time bringing your child to church?

 Kids Church, age 3 to 6th Grade

Kids Church is a place where children ages 3 through 6th grade experience Bible stories and Scripture through large group worship, games, crafts, and age-appropriate small group lessons.   This is a safe environment with caring adults that love to teach and have fun. Children begin in the sanctuary with their families and are dismissed following the children’s sermon at the morning services and after the 3rd song at the Evensong service.  First time bringing your child to church?

 CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS & SPECIAL EVENTS

 

Dance Team

During kids church we sing 1-3 songs. Some of the songs are very energetic and include a fun dance.  Our high school dancers lead a  DANCE TEAM for 3rd-6th graders (boys and girls) on Sundays. Rehearsals are from 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. This is an awesome way for kids to be part of our Annual Children’s Ministry Celebration in May.

Youth Band

The Youth Band (7th grade and older) leads worship during special kids events such as the Children’s Ministry Celebration in May.

Special Events:

We also provide special events throughout the year for the children and families of Stanwich to come together, such as:

  • *  Singing and visiting with residents at the local nursing & rehabilitation facility
  • *  Family picnics & movie nights
