***REMINDER: Feb 12 - NEW First Day School schedule begins:

On 2/12 we'll be switching to an 11:15 start time for classes with children joining adults in worship at 12:00.  

This is a change from past practice where children began upstairs. 

  • Please bring children to classes at 11:15.
  • First Day School teachers will be incorporating activities to support children in the transition to worship.

 There are many options for volunteers to work with our young people.   Time commitments vary, so you may find a job that fits your schedule as well as your leading.

 URGENT!  We need one lead teacher in the younger elementary class (K-2nd grade) in the next month or two to replace a teacher who will be stepping down.  Lead teachers will find well-organized resources in our library for preparing lessons with assistance of the FDS coordinator.   Time commitment is one to two classes per month.
