Parent Gathering and Presentation of Story Bibles to Children in Three-Year Classes

Parents of children in three-year classes are invited to gather in Geneva Hall at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 22 during the Church School hour. We’ll enjoy getting to know each other as we discuss helping our children grow in the faith. Your children will be brought to you at the end of the hour when families will receive copies of the Children of God Storybook Bible.
Play and Pray is our child-friendly wing of spiritual formation centers, located on the ground floor of the Luther building. Come to Play and Pray to enjoy:
• The Way Station (S104), where you’ll be transported to Bible story and prayer experiences
• Meadowlands (S101), for faith-filled games, arts, and crafts
• Living Waters Children’s Theater (S102), puppets and lively play-acting reign supreme here

Play and Pray is open Sunday-Friday, 1-4 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m.-noon for drop-in visits. To help Church School teachers in their planning, a sign-up is available on Sunday mornings during the Church School hours.

WMPC is a Safe Sanctuary Community 
We are called to create a community of faith where children, youth and adults grow safe and strong. God calls us to make our church community a safe place, protecting children and youth from sexual abuse. In response to this challenge, WMPC has developed a Safe Sanctuary protection policy.

The Timeline of Children's Ministries describes activities you and your child can experience at White Memorial.
