Due to the unique constraints of worship in the time of COVID, we have elected not to pause Sunday School classes. To best support our parents and kids who feel the stress and concerns of children being unvaccinated, we instead will seat our congregants in their close contact pods and social distance between each group of seated members. Families, should they wish it, can be seated near aisles and closer to exits so that they can step out of the sanctuary if they feel necessary, and we will have rooms available if they need a space for privacy.
We always include an element of service that we refer to as Time with Children, during which a unique message is delivered with the intent to speak to our kids. We also provide activity booklets and Youtube video suggestions for thematically relevant tie-ins to our services. We encourage families to bring headphones and a device they can stream from if they would like their kids to be able to watch those videos.
