- May 2, 5, and 6 Intergenerational Worship
With such success with our “Pastors’ Favorite Bible Stories” during Lent, we are going to continue our Digging into the Bible series through the DOCK school year. Don’t miss the stories of Haggar, Elijah, Esther and the Fiery Furnace in April.
Stay tuned for details on volunteer thank you events and the last week of DOCK celebration! We will be wrapping up our 2017-2018 school year Wednesday, May 9 for our Wednesday DOCK classes and May 19 and 20 for our weekend classes. The Summer DOCK session begins on July 8, Sundays only in both the Great Hall and Sanctuary; completed Kindergarten through Grade 5.
Check out our information on Summer DOCK.
Think of DOCK as Sunday School 2.0! No more confusion about “Sunday School” programs on Wednesday and Saturday Evenings. DOCK covers it all.
We currently ask for a new registration each school year and for each child in the family. Register for 2017-2018.
DOCK presents a new way to volunteer – More flexibility: monthly, weekly commitments for anyone grade 6 and older – it all works! Register to Volunteer!
General Information about DOCK:
- Six options are available each week: Saturdays at 5 p.m. in Great Hall; Sundays at 8:45 and 10:15 a.m. in Great Hall; Sundays at 9 and 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary; and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
- DOCK is open to all children Age 3 through Grade 5.
Two Key Elements make up DOCK:
1. Intergenerational worship once a month. The first weekend/Wednesday of every month (Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday night services), DOCK joins parents, siblings and other family members in the pews for the entire worship service. The intergenerational service includes children’s choirs, Skipping Stone Celebrations and special children’s messages. As always, nursery is available for children age 5 and under.
2. Monthly themed learning format. On the remaining weekends/Wednesdays for kids ages 3 and up; content will mirror what the rest of the congregation is covering during worship that month. Experiences, energy and variety are the focus. Innovative activities may include art, drama, music, storytelling, prayer and more. Each week children will experience the stories in a different way. Take-home activities based on these stories will help families talk about faith on the car ride home, at breakfast the next day, and beyond.
