Right now we worship online, and babies and toddlers bless our Zoom feed with cuteness and questions. We look forward to a day after the pandemic when safe and loving nursery care will again be available every Sunday. When that happens, you are welcome to bring your baby or toddler into the sanctuary with you, but nursery care is available to every visitor or member. Our nursery care, when offered, is provided by a regular, paid caregiver and accompanied by volunteers adhering to our Safe Church Policy. Nursery care is recommended for ages 3 and under.
Helping children grow in their faith and understand their Christian tradition is a passion of Plymouth Church. Each Sunday during the school year, children are invited to leave worship service (after the Children’s message) and receive instruction geared specifically for their age group. Sunday School is always optional, and regular attendance is not mandatory, but it is encouraged as an important part of a child’s spiritual formation and development. We have three multi-age classrooms – Scouts (preschool), Rangers (early elementary), and Trail Blazers (later elementary and middle school). High Schoolers are invited to participate in worship, with youth events scheduled periodically.
Plymouth Church is committed to being a safe space for people of all ages, and has adopted a responsible code of conduct called our “Safe Church Policy.” It has special measures to protect children, including background checks for all nursery and Sunday School volunteers.
