Early in 2020, 20+ volunteers gathered to clear and clean the Sunday School classrooms. The nursery and toddler rooms were going to be next. Children’s Church (during the church service for 3 year olds to 2nd grade) moved from an upper wing room to the main floor. Painting and re-arranging was under consideration. In March, the building was closed and only 10 children have been inside since.
The Children’s Moment of 5 or less minutes became a regular part of the Sunday morning service and expanded the reach of the Children’s ministry to the entire church body. There were some emails to encourage parents and a couple of zoom sessions to pray for kids, parents and teachers. Various zoom gatherings for kids to be together and learn about the Bible became Kids in the Bible in August 2020 and continues into 2021.
