Marjorie Fisher will be coordinating the Children’s Program at Synod. It is for children from birth though elementary school. If you have any questions or concerns about the Children’s Program this year, please reach out to email@example.com.
The Children’s Program runs concurrently with the Clergy Gathering and the Clergy and Laity Gathering from October 20-22. It will be available from 8-5 on Thursday and Friday and from 8-through the end of the business meeting on Saturday. There will be a break of about an hour in the middle of each day for lunch where children will join their parents, though if both parents are participating in an intensive on Saturday, something can be worked out. Contact Marjorie Fisher directly if this is the case.
The Children’s Program will start out each day with a shortened version of Morning Prayer and then there will be time for the participants to play, do art, read, or participate in other provided activities. There will also be times throughout the day where the children will gather and do a Bible story and discussion that relates in an age-appropriate manner to the theme of Synod. The children will also have a morning and afternoon snack.
Your children will be cared for by individuals who have completed the Diocesan Safe Ministry training and there will always be a minimum of two adult volunteers in the room.
If there is a chance your child might have an accident during the program, please bring a change of clothes in a labeled bag. If your child has any allergies, please inform the Children’s Program volunteers and provide your own snacks if your child is unable to eat items such as goldfish, Cheerios, and fruit snacks.
