All children and families are welcome to participate in children’s activities at Macalester Plymouth United Church. We begin each Sunday in worship together at 10 am and all other programming flows from worship. Children of all ages are always welcome to stay in worship!
Ages 0-3: Nursery
Nursery care is offered every Sunday 9am – 12pm and occasionally during special services or events at different days and times. Children are invited to connect, play, and create with one another. Here, your child will have access to age-appropriate toys, games, books, and activities facilitated by child-centered and nurturing staff. Meets in the Nursery West room (across from the restrooms by the church office). Caregivers are Courtney Brennan, Julia Brooks, and Hannah Utke.
Ages 3-K: SHINE
SHINE preschool Sunday School will be offered following the Children’s Message in the Garden Room. It will be led by Courtney Brennan, an educator in training, along with parent volunteers as needed. This will be each week, except for Communion Sundays and occasional holiday weekends.
SHINE: Living in God’s Light is a dynamic, age-appropriate Sunday school curriculum that engages Christian communities and families in their life together by inviting children to know God’s love and to follow Jesus. It encourages imaginative, interactive biblical storytelling, while exploring the meaning of the Bible within the gathered community and cultivating the inner life of the Spirit through spiritual practices expressing faith through lives of compassionate peacemaking and service. The lessons are designed to be fun and interactive in ways that engage preschoolers hearts, minds and bodies.
