Your Children are Welcome Here!

We love the sound and energy of children, and their presence will not be disruptive to us. They may join you for the entire time in any of our worship services if you choose. We also offer several other options for your, and their, convenience:

Weekly Programming

Play or Pray Table- All ages, during Celebration Service

Keep those little hands busy and join our grown-up volunteers to play Legos, color, use play dough and have fun while listening to our Sunday Service.

Foundations (Youth Group) 

Dinner, games, songs and small group discussion focusing on the four F’s – Faith, Fellowship, Food and Fun! A joint, family dinner will be followed by song time and large group games for the whole youth group. Following, participants will split into small groups for fellowship and curriculum. Children and youth are all welcome to attend. This program is deliberately interfaith, not just focusing on the Lutheran and Methodist traditions of the CoOp, but also integrating with the traditions other communities of faith!

Location: Great Room, Ministry Center

Date Time: TBA

Lock-Ins 

These all night events are welcome to any youth and their friends who would like to participate. Lock-ins generally run from 7pm to 7am on Friday nights. The youth and their advisers are locked into CoOp and no other groups are permitted entry during that time. Lock-ins generally revolve around a theme (for instance the last two have been Zombie Faith and Teamwork) and include food, games, and generally a movie.

Youth Day at SMB – all ages

Fifth Saturday of those months which have them are the Youth Volunteer Days at Saturday Morning Breakfast. Children, youth and families are encouraged to volunteer at any time at SMB, but especially on Fifth Saturdays.
