Preschool for children ages 3 through 5 (kindergarten) takes place from 9:45am to 10:45 with SPARK. From 11:00am to Noon, these same children can engage in Godly Play, while parents and older siblings are in worship.

Spark is a faith formation program that introduce 3 year old through Kindergarten aged children to an ever deepening exploration of God’s stories.
Spark lessons bring to life stories from the Old and New Testaments through games, art, music and science, to accommodate all the different ways that children learn.
Godly Play teaches children the art of using Christian language - parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action - helping them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives. Taught by a Montessori method of Christian Education using three dimensional, hand-carved Bibles story figures, Godly Play prepares children to join in the worship and life of their congregations as they develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites.
Note to Parents sending children to Godly Play: You have the option, when signing your child in during the 9:45 education hour, to sign them into church school care through the Godly Play hour, ending at Noon. This will alleviate you transferring your child from church school class to Godly Play care, thus lessening the chance of parent/child separation struggles in this transition.
