Families in Worship

At South Church, we celebrate time together as a whole congregation, which happens in a multitude of ways throughout the church year. Our families begin worship together in the sanctuary every Sunday. Our typical service welcomes children and adults together for our opening words, chalice lighting, and a story for all ages. Children are them commonly invited downstairs to attend Religious Education programming. However, young people may wish to remain in the worship service and are always welcome. We have a Balcony Resource Area, which provides various activities and reflection opportunities to help children feel engaged while remaining in the sanctuary with their families. 

On select Sundays throughout the year, we offer services for the whole congregation. The nursery remains open for children up to age 4, but other religious education classes are suspended for these Sundays:

September - Water In-Gathering, led by ministers and staff

November - Wholly Family, led by a multi-age group

December - Pageant, led by ministers and staff

Christmas Eve - Our 5pm and 7pm services are planned with all generations in mind

Easter Service - Led by ministers and staff

Bridging Service (late spring) - Led by ministers and staff
