On Sunday, September 27th we officially started another year of children and youth ministry.  While we all know that COVID-19 has made our lives much more challenging, we are excited about the opportunities we have to stay connected and to continue to offer meaningful, spiritual formation experiences for children, youth and their families.  Nursery care is now provided by Arianne Frazee during our worship services.  In addition, for older children, we have Sunday school classes right after the “Children’s Time” during worship.  We are grateful that Valerie Jansson will be leading our youth program once again this year!  When possible, classes will be held outdoors.  When inside we will continue to physical distance in the class room and everyone will wear masks.  In addition, every child has their own Sunday school table and chair, as well as their own personal supply bag.  After each Sunday, our sexton will vigorously clean the area.   Something new for our youth (and others) this year is the donation of a nice ping pong table, air hockey table and pool table!  Be sure to check out our “game room” downstairs in the basement!
