God loves kids and so do we!
Children of all ages are welcome to worship with their parent(s) in the Sanctuary. The ushers will provide you with Worship Activity bags (located in the back of the sanctuary) that include crayons and coloring pages. The church library serves as a "crying room" for fussy babies or nursing moms; there, you can listen to the worship service and have easy access to the changing table in the Women's rest room.
Infant - 3 yrs old
We offer a professionally staffed nursery every Sunday morning from 9am - 11:15am so parents can attend both Adult Education and Worship. We have both an infant and toddler room and we would love to care for your infant - 3 year old. You never have to feel far away because we use a beeper system to reach you if there is any need at all.
4 yr olds - 2nd Graders
We believe that children learn and worship differently than adults and it is our responsibility to address their needs as well as the parent's needs. While you are worshipping with us at 10:00am, all children from 4 years old - 2nd grade are welcome to join us after the Children's Message for a fun-filled worship experience geared specifically for their age level. This worship service includes a story time, music and other activities.
3rd - 6th Graders
As our children grow it is important our programs do as well. Our Young Disciples program is a worship program for students 3rd - 6th grades. This group meets on Sundays during our worship service following the Children's Message. Like Little Shepherds, this is a worship experience geared specifically for the needs and interests of this age group.
The 1st Sunday of the month has traditionally been known as “Communion Sunday” here at Pluckemin. And now, if you worship as a family with young children, it is also “Family Worship Sunday.”
It is such a blessing to share The Lord’s Supper and Worship together as a family. Therefore, on Communion Sundays, children will remain in Worship for the entire service to experience all of the blessings and treasures Communion Sunday has to offer.
|LIGHTING THE WAY: ACOLYTING
Is your child in third grade or older? Does he or she want a way to feel like a part of the Sunday morning church service? They can be an acolyte! An acolyte lights the chancel altar's candles which symbolize the Holy Spirit's presence during worship.
We want your first worship experience to be a great one for both you and your
child(ren)! Feel free to call ahead to the church office at (908) 658-3346 and let us know you're coming. We will be ready to welcome you and show you and your child(ren) around!
