Questions? Call Mary Lou Edgar at 302-545-3361 or email email@example.com —
We hope to help our children learn a bit about scripture, music, our church and our church family. We have an altar and a cross surrounded by a rug on which they can sit. They are encouraged to ask questions. They are full of life and have lots to say. When they come up to the church to share peace, it is so joyful.
We will hold Children’s Chapel in Crypt Hall because there is a ramp there for those in walkers and wheelchairs. One of our facilitators, Moni Edgar, uses a wheelchair.
Children’s Chapel is the same time as the 10:30 service. After the sermon we bring the children upstairs to share a sign of peace with their families. They are then present for the Eucharistic portion of the Liturgy. We found that this works well.
Mary Lou, Carey, Noel, Moni, and Celia
