Children have a place in everything we do, welcome!

The prayground is the area at the very front of the sanctuary on the right-hand side with teen volunteers ready to quietly play during worship. This zone is designed for those who don’t like sitting in a chair for an hour and are not ready or willing to join a program. The pray ground allows parents and children to be present in worship together; this is where we build trust and belonging. 

The Prayground up front fosters Belonging
  • We Welcome Wiggles
  • We believe children’s whole selves belong in sacred spaces 
  • Kids learn worship by being present 
  • Smiles Build Community and Compassion 
  • kids can engage at the heart of the action: so the Prayground is up front 
  • We are all role models—greet questions with gentle whispers 
  • The Prayground is for stretching out, movement, and hand busy activities 
  • Please feel free to come and go with a child as needed 
  • The service is livestreamed to a screen in Hewett Hall with a playroom open for use as desired 
  • Nursing parents are welcome everywhere—there is a comfy chair in the Hewett playroom if you want more privacy

Teen volunteers help maintain our prayground, assist in our children’s program, and are available to engage young children in a gentle and playful way. We are here to support your journey and family prescence. Regular modeling being together builds relationship and trust. We hope you find enjoyment and sanctuary here.
