Our Children’s Spiritual Development program for 2019-20 has as its theme Wonder, Service, Mindfulness and Fun. This year we offer exciting programs from PreK to 12th grade, as well as monthly special events including Children’s Chapel and Justice Sundays. See the program descriptions here. You can register online at: bit.ly/register-csd

Children begin the morning in the sanctuary with their families and are sung out to their classes. Details below.

Coming of Age will meet next on September 29 at 10:30am in the Edna Jones Assembly Room. COA Schedule linked here.

Childcare is offered to children 4-5 years old and younger in the Committee Room this and almost every Sunday from 9:00am until 12:00pm.

Details about the CSD programs and schedules can be found on the on the Child Spiritual Development page.

Logistics for program Sundays (Starting September 15th):

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 4-5th grade, Middle School Youth Group (7-8th grade), and Coming of Age (8th- 10th 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! 

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 Sullivan 2) after service has ended to pick up children. However, note that after 15 minutes after the service has ended (or noon at the latest), all children will be escorted back to the Dining Hall by teachers.

Children in 4-5th grades will be able to head back to the Dining Hall on their own after their workshop is over. 

Visit the Child Spiritual Development page for details about our Fall program which start September 15.
