Faith Formation for Children

“Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”

Children’s Faith Formation at Storrs Congregational

As a congregation, we believe that children belong in the faith community as we all seek to nourish our spiritual practice, exercise our faith, worship God, and let our lights shine! While we are learning and practicing together, we also have fun together, sharing the stories and times of our lives, and being a support to one another. For the children of our church, this ‘being together’ looks something like this:

Family Worship

Children are always welcome to remain in the Meeting House for all of of the Sunday worship service! We do, however, set aside a number of Sundays each year—about once every couple of months—to specifically encourage families to worship together.

We believe that we learn to be the body of Christ by being together and we learn to worship by worshiping, and therefore on these Sundays we invite all ages to remain in the sanctuary for the whole service.  As the worship leaders plan for a Family Worship service, special attention is paid to the different needs and interests of a wider age-range.
