The word “family” means more to us than just Mom and Dad and kids. We are a More Light congregation and we treasure all kinds of families–including our gay and lesbian families, our single parents, and our families led by foster caregivers.

During our Communal Worship service, children of all ages are invited to worship with their families in the Sanctuary. After the children’s message (about 20 minutes into the service), often children are invited to leave the service and attend an all-ages Sunday School class. Children rejoin their families in the sanctuary before the worship service ends.
Kids of all ages are always welcome to remain in the sanctuary for the entire service. Children’s worship bags are available in the narthex to the right of the main doors into the sanctuary. These bags have crayons, coloring pages, activities, and books. There is also a “children’s nook” in the back of our sanctuary where children and their parents can move around, read books, and experience worship without having to be confined to a pew.
