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.

Our children are a big part of church life–especially on Sundays. Children age kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to attend our Children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings in Classroom 3.
10:30-11:30 AM, Sanctuary (Church Map)
During our Communal Worship service, children preschool age and younger are welcome to worship with their families in the Sanctuary, or they may got to the nursery. Kids in kindergarten and older are invited to attend the worship service with the rest of the congregation. 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 a “treasure hunt” children can do through the service to help enrich their worship experience. Kids who finish their treasure hunt are invited to show it to Arden Ratcliff, our Director of Children & Youth, at the end of the service and they can pick a prize from her treasure chest!
