At Grace, as Jesus did, we welcome children of all ages as integral members of the body of Christ, and we welcome the sounds and activity that accompany them! There are a number of spaces and activities designed for children to experience and participate in worship according to their needs; we trust families to work out the best option(s) for them and their child(ren) on any given day. One of these options is the Pray-ground, located in the front-left section of the sanctuary. This area is designed for children 3 and under to quietly engage in age-appropriate activities while experiencing worship in the sanctuary along with their families.
Ever since we posted a Facebook album celebrating the 1-year anniversary of the dedication of our Pray-Ground at Grace, we have been inundated with questions about how it came to be, from both clergy and lay people hoping to do something similar in their faith communities. Hopefully this page will help to answer some of them! If not, please feel free to contact me. You’re also most welcome to stop by anytime (though good to make an appointment first if you want to talk with someone in particular), or to visit us for worship!
Blessings to you on this adventure!
