Children & Youth Education at Advent
Advent offers opportunities for lifelong growth in the knowledge and love of God to all. From our Godly Play program for our youngest parishioners to weekly adult Bible study, Advent offers a variety of programs for seekers of all ages and stages in one’s spiritual journey.

The Nursery at Advent
Dear Families, We are so glad to have you worshipping at Advent and want you to be comfortable here. Please know that your children are more than welcome in the worship service and we don't mind their joyful noises. "Children are a heritage from the Lord" (Psalm 128:4). There are coloring supplies and more in the narthex. If you wish to take your child out of the sanctuary, there are two spaces set up you are welcome to use: 1. The lobby area to the right of the altar has some toys and books. You'll be able to hear the service from this area. 2. The nursery downstairs next to the kitchen has lots of toys, a crib, and diapering supplies. Please make your child and yourself comfortable in any of these spaces and let an usher know if there is anything we can do to support you and your family.
Kindergarten through 6th grade
We will be using the “Godly Play” curriculum. In this we tell the stories of our scriptures and traditions using simple visual tools that encourage children to use their imaginations. The stories end with questions that encourage children to wonder about the story. Then there are age-appropriate responses that the children can make to the stories. These can include re-telling the story using the figures from the story, making their own figures or pictures about the story, and, for older children, there will be an opportunity to discuss the story with each other and a teacher.
