This Sunday, November 11, children begin Sunday morning in the Sanctuary with their families and then at 10:45am are sung out to their classes:
  • PreK – K – Sullivan 1
  • Grades 1 – 3 – Nursery School, 1st Fl.
  • Grades 4 – 6 – Sullivan 2 & 3

Note that these youth classes will meet directly in Bristol Room (10:30am – 12:00noon)

Sunday Night Youth Group

Youth group will meet at 6-8pm Sunday evening in the Kitchen.  There will be pizza to share while we ponder the interdependent web of life of which we’re all apart (TIWOFOWWAAA).

Logistics for Sundays:

Drop Off: Children can accompany parents into the sanctuary for worship at 10:30am, and then they will be sung out to the Dining Hall after approximately 15 minutes. Parents are welcome to accompany children to the Dining Hall, where our CSD Leaders will gather them into their groups: PreK – Kindergarten, First-Third Grade, and 4-6th grade.

Parents and guardians are also welcome to accompany the children and Leaders back to the CSD rooms, especially if you have never seen them before! Due to the Elevator Project, to access Sullivan Chapel we must exit the Dining Hall, walk around the courtyard, and re-enter Sullivan.

Parents are welcome to sit in a CSD session or visit at any time. Your children’s safety and happiness is important to us, and we want you to know exactly where your children are at all times.

Dismissal: We are asking parents of PreK-Kindergarten and 1st – 3rd Grades to come back to the CSD rooms (in Sullivan 1, and the Nursery School Co-op building, respectively) promptly after service has ended to pick up children. Note that after 12pm, all children will be escorted back to the Dining Hall by teachers.

Children in 4-6th grade (in Sullivan 3) will be escorted back to the Dining Hall by CSD Leaders; this is a safety protocol change from last year due to the loss of the inner stairwell during the construction project. This is the safest way to navigate the courtyards and re-entry into the church.

Childcare for children 4-5 years old and younger is offered this Sunday and most Sundays from 9:00am – 12:00pm in the Committee Room.

The Wiggle Room is just off the Narthex (behind the Sanctuary) for those who need a little break. Play Packs for children in the Sanctuary are available. Please just ask an usher.
