Children and Youth
Babies and Toddlers
Nursery Care for babies and toddlers through age 3 is provided during Sunday services in the regular church year. Care is provided by First Parish adults and teens.
PreKindergarten through 8th Grade
Children ages 4-13 attend the first part of our weekly worship services to experience our rituals, traditions, prayer time, stories, and music. Younger Children (preK-2nd Grade) depart the service after the Time For All Ages for the Sunday School Class with our trained teacher. Older children (3rd– 8th Grade) depart the service after the prayer and second hymn to go to Chapel with our Director of Religious Education and Family Ministry or other trained leader for a time of sharing and engaging with the theme or topic of the service that day. If you feel your older child may be more comfortable in the Primary classroom with the younger children, please speak with our Director of Religious Education and Family Ministry. Most Sundays our Chapel group meets, but about once a month (usually in celebration of a holiday or other special observance) we have an All Ages Worship Service
