Here at Mount Vernon, children participate in every aspect of our church community. Through Christian education, service projects, outreach opportunities, and fellowship, children learn to love God and love others as God loves them. By working together with their family, we strive to encourage children to:
- Grow in faith
- Know they are loved as children of God and important to this congregation
- Identify their own gifts as we grow in relationship with each other and with God.
Activities for the summer are not offered at this time.
10:00 – Sunday for Kids
Nursery – Birth to Age 4 – Our infant, toddler classes hear Bible stories, sing and play. We strive to provide two childcare workers in each room. Our youngest children receive loving care in the nursery and toddler rooms in the lower level of the North wing of the sanctuary building.
Elementary Education – Preschool to Grade 5 – These lessons are designed to enrich your child’s faith as each session builds upon what we experience in worship. Each Sunday children explore the weekly Bible story through interactive activities. Children also participate in service opportunities encouraging them to reach out to others in their community.
Summer Schedule – May 26 – September 1
The nursery is available for our summer worship, however, we do not offer any activities for children at this time.
