Our special Intergenerational Church School days intentionally take into account the fact that there are learners of different ages and experiences in attendance. The programs seek to teach to the hearts of everyone present.

Intergenerational teaching and learning benefits both adults and children. It provides opportunities for all generations to understand the material differently and benefit from another perspective. It is a unique opportunity for the young to learn from the old, and for the old to learn from the young.

Examples of past Intergenerational programs include: World Communion Bread Making, Advent Wreath Making, Advent Spiral, and Holy Week Walk.

While we would like to strongly encourage participation from people of all ages, United Parish Safe Church Policy requires that children be accompanied by an adult.

Lenten Midweek Worship: Dinner Church

Lenten Dinner Church is returning this year! Join us for a contemplative, candlelit service over a shared meal each Thursday from March 14 through April 11 from 6:15-7:00pm in the Parlor. Doors open at 6pm. Dinner church is a post-modern return to an ancient worship model that has been sweeping the country- just like what the early Christians did in their own homes. We’ll enjoy soup, salad, communion, some prayer, confession and music. For more information, contact Seminarian Wilson Hood at or Associate Pastor Amy Norton at
