General Information – Sunday mornings
Sunday Morning Religious Education Classes for Children: Classes begin September 9, 2012 and ends in May 2013. Classes begin promptly at 9:45 a.m. and end at 10:45 a.m. each Sunday. We ask that parents remain on the premises during religious education classes – Adult RE opportunities are available, or parents can socialize in Coleman Hall. Parents must pick their children up immediately after the end of class (10:45 a.m.) so that our teachers can worship with their families on Sunday mornings.
Sunday Morning Worship: We encourage family worship here at First Jefferson – our community expectation is that children and youth will join their parents and the rest of the congregation in the 11 a.m. worship service. We offer nursery care for infants and toddlers, and Chalice Children for younger children who cannot remain in service, but if your family wishes to worship together, children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services, in whole or in part.
Chalice Children: Younger children may stay in church with their families or may participate in Chalice Children, a program for our children who are too young to attend an entire worship service. Chalice Children are included in the first half of the worship service, and leave for supervised playtime following the Story Time (Listen for the song, “As We Leave this Friendly Place”) Typically, our children graduate from the Chalice Children program in the 3rd grade. Chalice Children is run as a parent co-op, overseen by Rachel Hawkins. If your child(ren) attend regularly, please plan to volunteer. Please pick up your children immediately following the service
Nursery: Offered from 9:30a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
