Holy Comforter is a great place to be a kid!
We strongly believe in nurturing the inherent connections children have with God and with one another.
One of the primary ways we reinforce their relationship with God is through Sunday Morning Children's Hour for children 3 years old through fifth grade, which strengthens their concepts of love of God, themselves and others. The curriculum for children is divided into two parts:
Children ages 3 through first grade are in Atrium One, where they learn about the altar, and grow familiar with the liturgy, the seasons of the church, the sacraments, prayers and Parables. The consistent message is God’s unending love.
Second through fifth graders are in Atrium Two, where a deeper understanding of our worship services and the Bible are developed. Children explore the sacrament of Communion, discover the gifts of God’s creation, and are encouraged to develop their relationship to God as they explore the Plan of God and our place in it in greater depth.
Our children nurture their connections with each other, their families and the church community through fun events throughout the year. In summer, we gather Sundays mornings for Popsicles on the Playground and enjoy a week of Vacation Bible School. Our children collect treats during the annual Easter Egg Hunt, carve pumpkins during our Fall Festival, they decorate houses during our Gingerbread House Construction Party, they don costumes and take part in our heartwarming Epiphany Pageant and they tumble in the Moon Bounce during our Pentecost Picnic.
On Sunday mornings, infants and children up to three years old are encouraged to relax in our Nursery, where they are cared for in safe and enjoyable classrooms. The Nursery is open from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Please ask one of our Hosts for directions to the Nursery if you are visiting! The classrooms are divided by age, and this information is posted outside each room.
