Kids rule at Sailors (age 3-Grade 2)! Our youngest children meet from 6:00 - 7:15 on Wednesday evenings (September - April). They will have their own worship time led by Pastor Wayne, followed by Music, Arts & Crafts and Story Time. They close with a quiet time to help calm them before heading home for bed.
Every Wednesday there will be a simple meal for the children and their families from 5:15 - 5:50 pm. Cost is $3 each (maximum of $10/family).
After studying First Communion practices a decade ago, St. Barnabas decided to follow the practice of several congregations in our synod and adopt the practice of communion of the baptized. This means that children as young as 3 or 4 are welcome to the sacrament if:
The parents feel the child has expressed sufficient interest in sharing the meal.
The parents and child attend instruction classes together.
A First Communion class for children and their parents will be offered in the fall and spring. Siblings are welcome to come. If you are interested in having your child prepare for First Communion, sign up by sending an email to Rose Umland.
WORSHIP: Sunday, 9:00 AM, 10:30 AM • Saturday, 5:00 PM
