    • The class is patterned after an Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) format, so there will be approximately 20 minutes of free play at different stations, and then we’ll move into circle time for a story and song.
    • Takes place the 1st Sunday of every month after the worship service in the Rainbow Room starting in October and ending in May. 
    • Each session meets in the Rainbow Room for a 30-45 minute sessions of family time where you and your child can spend time playing and learning some familiar Bible stories.
    • Some play activities might get messy; come in casual clothes.
    • Our goal is to offer time for fun and fellowship for the parents too. We encourage parents to get to know one another while they play together with their kids.
