CPC Kids Faith Formation
For children 3 yrs - 5th Grade (September-May)
This year your child's faith formation journey will look a little different. The children will stay in the sanctuary for the entire worship service on Communion Sundays and various other Sundays through out the 2023-2024 season.
The remaining Sundays of the month they will start in worship service. After "A Time For Youngest Children" they will be invited to go to room 6 on the lower level for Faith Formation class.
Kids 1st grade and older
You are enthusiastically invited to become an Acolyte for the 9:30 worship. The Acolyte walks up while the Prelude is being played and lights the Christ candle on the chancel! Although this is an important part of the service it is VERY simple...it only take a few minutes for Pastor Beth,
Pastor Susan or Kristin to teach your child the correct way to carry out this task.
For infants through 2-years-old
The Nursery will be staffed one Sunday a month. Check out the Kids' Calendar for dates
Families can drop off their little ones to be cared for by our volunteers. We use a pager system in case a parent is needed. The Nursery is located across from the church office on the main floor and is always open and available for use even when not staffed by our volunteers.
COMING SOON; live stream of the worship service in the Nursery!
CPC Kids and Families BIG Summer Read and Movie Under the Stars
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Some Pig. Humble. Radiant.
These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spider web tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter.
E. B. White's Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, love, life, and death that has been enjoyed by generations. Whether you are 3 or 93 this book is perfect summer reading...so join us and read Charlotte's Web as a family or by yourself and enjoy some fun activities along the way!
To cap off this fun summer reading adventure we will have a Charlotte's Web movie viewing party on September 15 at 7:15pm on the south lawn.
Bring your own chair or blanket to spread out on and
non-perishable food items as your "ticket" into the movie!
Popcorn will be served. Candy and drinks will be sold, cash only.
