Chapel in the Pines Policy on Children and Youth Protection and Care (click here)


This service is available every Sunday during the 11:00AM worship service for children through age 4.  Our competent paid staff and volunteers will lovingly care for your young child(ren).

Beginning in June, the Nursery program will be moved to the 9:15 AM service, EXCEPT for the second Sunday combined service which will still be at 11:00 AM.


Children in Worship

Children ages 3+ are welcome at Chapel in the Pines with all the energy, enthusiasm, wisdom, and vocalization they bring to worship. The Time With
Children is a special part of our worship service when children and youth are invited to gather at the front of the congregation for a special message tailored for young folks. Following the Time with Children, young children are invited to attend the Sacred Art Time or re-join their parents. At Sacred Art Time, children will continue to explore the week’s Bible passage through storytelling, conversation, and communal art activities. Children return to the sanctuary for the Prayers of the People and the Lord’s Prayer.


Youth Programs

Tween Youth Group (grades 3 rd -6 th ): Sundays-3:00-4:30PM.

We realized that our upper elementary aged children crave a deeper Christian Education experience than the Sacred Art time alone can provide.  The Tween Youth Group is an afternoon “junior” youth group that allows young disciples in grades 3-6 to dig into their faith, grow closer as a community of peers, and explore the idea of discipleship in action at an age-appropriate level. Each week our Director of Children’s and Youth Ministries and our Youth Assistant will lead the group in fellowship, fun, and faith development.

Teen Youth Group (grades 7 th -12 th ): Sundays—5:00-6:30PM

Our teen youth group explores the connection between faith and our teen’s lives. Through a combination of service, study, and fun, we continue to live into our discipleship in community with one another. Led by our Director of Children’s and Youth Ministries and our church pastor.

Note: The last week of regularly weekly youth group meetings will be May 28th. We will resume in Mid-August when schools return from Summer Break.
