Pastor: Rev. Karen Wolcott
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. (Matthew 19:14)
Where is God on Sunday morning? Of course, God is everywhere. We know that God is enthroned in the praises of his people. (Psalm 22:3) But did you know that God is back in the church nursery? To learn more about the Pleasant Hills Nursery, visit our Sunday Morning Nursery Services page or click here.
Children have fun learning the stories of Jesus, stories include the Good Samaritan, the prodigal son and the Greatest Commandment. They learn through watching the story on a video, reading the story in the Bible and talking about what the story means in their lives at home and at school. Children meet during the traditional Sunday School hour, 9-10, and during StoryTellers. With the exception of Communion Sundays when we all worship together, children leave worship after the children's moment for StoryTellers where we pray, we read the Bible, we talk about the Story, we do a craft or a game all related to the theme of the day. Infants through kindergarten meet in the nursery/childcare where they also learn the stories of Jesus and do crafts. First graders through Fifth graders meet together. 6th graders are in the Youth Group. Our children participate in community projects such as making cards for shut-ins, collecting items for hunger centers and putting together health kits for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). If you have any questions, please ask Rev. Linda.
