Children’s Ministry

child news
September Highlights
→ Colbert Cooperative Preschool kicked off their second year, under the superb leadership of director Brenna Stanfield and with lots of “cooperation” from our fourteen preschool families.

→ Pastor Eric presented Adventure Bibles to six kindergartners, reminding them that “[God’s Word] is a lamp for [our] feet and a light for [our] path.” (Psalm 119:105)
→ Our new Sunday School program began, mirroring our adult fellowship circles by providing time for friendship-building, exploring God’s Word more deeply, and connecting with God through prayer.
→ Our Sunday morning children’s ministry leaders received valuable and inspiring training from children’s ministry consultant Dianne Ross, who shared about the history, philosophy and methods of Godly Play, our core curriculum for Sunday mornings.
→Our Wednesday night programming resumed and included a lively brainstorming session, during which the kids thought of tons of ways we can love God and love our neighbors in the months ahead!
