As we return to in-person worship inside the Sanctuary, we look forward to resuming our SONlight offering as well. SONlight is a time designed for children ages 3K-5th grade and is offered during the sermon time in the SONlight room. Following the Children’s Message, the children head to the SONlight room with the SONlight leader. Once gathered in the classroom, the children enjoy scripture, service and fellowship activities geared to their ages. Children return to their family in the Sanctuary during the Sharing of the Peace.
Traditionally, we have offered this during the 11:00 worship service during the Sermon. We would like to try adding it to the 8:30 worship as well. For now, we plan to provide it on the 1st Sunday on each month. You do not need any special training or supplies, only an open-heart and patience with little ones. There would be instructions for that day’s activity—sometimes a Celebrate activity sheet geared toward each age group, sometimes a service project and sometimes another activity themed with that day’s lesson/liturgical year.
All adults, young adults, parents, grandparents and empty nesters are encouraged to take part in this special time with our All Saints children. During the 11 service, when there are typically more young children, we will also ask for a youth helper (6th-12th graders) to assist the adult SONlight leader.
Thank you in advance for your support as we all do our part in our church family’s Christian Formation and help in the promises we make at Baptism!
