Check out the slide deck from Teacher Gaddy’s recent presentation. For more information about how CWOW works with children and families, contact her at gaddy@churchwithoutwallsberkeley.org.

During Act One of our Sunday Celebration service, Church Without Walls provides Children’s Church for children age 3 through 5th grade and a loving childcare space for babies and toddlers. We use Godly Play curriculum for the preschoolers and elementary schoolers.

Act Two of our Sunday Celebration service is intergenerational, meaning all ages worship together.  We are exploring intergenerational worship during this part of the service to extend true welcome to children, something Jesus modeled to his disciples.  We want children to feel like they belong in the community of faith we call our church family.  We also see this as an opportunity to increase in active participation during worship as we move from a “participation over performance” model.  Children tend to lead the way in this area!

 Babies and Toddlers (0 to 3 years)

Our nursery class is led by a certified Early Childhood educator who creates a loving, safe and cozy place for our littlest kids. You can bring your baby or toddler to Teacher Denise after Act One of our Celebration time, around 4:50.  You are welcome to stay with your baby or toddler if they are having trouble leaving you.  This space has toys, books, snacks and fun. Please pick your child up from the classroom at 6pm.
