CHILDREN’S MUSIC GROUP: following 11:00am Service (Room 102, Lower Level)
Our Children’s Music Group is designed for children in grades 1-5. Children attending the 11:00 am worship service leave with Ms. Leona, our Music Director, during the closing hymn, and meet in Room 102, dismissing at 12:30. The goal of the children’s music program is to prepare children to worship fully through music. Our children will be singing on Pentecost Sunday, June 4. Contact: Leona Greenlaw ([email protected]).
Acolytes in Worship
Through the centuries, acolytes have been faithful and conscientious people of faith of all ages. At Central UCC, beginning with third graders, this important ministry invites children and youth to lead us in 11:00 a.m. worship, bringing the light of Christ into our time together. The acolytes are trained in their work before beginning.
Keeping our Children Safe
Central Congregational UCC is committed to creating and maintaining programs, facilities, and a community in which members, staff, volunteers, and friends can worship, learn, and work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation, and intimidation. The congregation has established policies and procedures, screening and training of staff and volunteers, and preventative education for the congregation in the following areas: sexual misconduct, physical abuse and other forms of harassment. We hold each other to the highest standard to keep our children safe.
Special Upcoming Events: Tuesday, October 24 from 6:30-8:30pm we will have a special night of pumpkin carving in fellowship hall. Please BYOP (Bring your own pumpkin)! Dinner will be provided.
