Kids at Broad Bay
What a great day at our annual picnic!
Thanks to the Meyers for letting us use their family farm in Waldoboro.
Thanks also to all the Sunday school teachers and to all those who helped out during the year and at the picnic.
We seize the opportunity to involve children in many aspects of our church life from ringing the church bell, lighting the candles, reading scripture, passing the offering plate, playing a musical instrument and communion. Children are invited to design bulletin covers or write prayers.
Children participate in outreach projects including Heifer Project, the Waldoboro Food Pantry, & free community luncheons. They are often found designing cards for folks who are sick or celebrating birthdays. During church school which is offered during a portion of the worship service, activities by our enthusiastic and creative church school teachers.
In the past year, children have produced a shadow puppet show for Christmas Eve, a holy week lego film, and have sung for elderly members confined to their homes.
Every Sunday during worship, our pastor invites the children to come forward to talk about the lesson for the day. Adults listen closely as the children share their questions and observations and the pastor responds directly to their thoughts.
Sunday School is offered on the a second and forth Sundays of each month from September through June.
