Each Sunday from the first Sunday after Labor Day in September through the beginning of June, children from age 3 through 8th Grade experience education and faith development in the classrooms on the lower level and in our upstairs kitchen. The first Sunday of each month, the children and youth join the adults in the sanctuary for communion. In addition to our regular lessons, we involve everyone in special programs including outreach and topical activities and a Christmas Eve pageant. During May, the entire Sunday School focuses on preparing for the annual Children’s Sunday worship service and its musical drama.

We love and welcome all children at CCOL. The few rules we have are there to keep children safe. Please read these rules and go over them with your child. If you have questions about the rules, feel free to ask the CE Committee.
- Before and during the 10:15 service all children must be with (that means in the same room with) their parents or with another supervising adult. If you are in the Parish Hall — that’s where your children should be unless another adult has agreed to watch them somewhere else. If you are in the sanctuary or setting up a classroom — ditto. No children are to be downstairs in the Parish Hall or in the classrooms without an adult.
- Children in the 5th grade or below are only allowed in the balcony with a supervising adult.
- During Sunday School time (that means after Children’s Time most Sundays) all children are either to be with a supervising adult in the sanctuary or downstairs with their class.
- It is fine for older children to walk downstairs after Children’s Time by themselves, as long as they actually get to their class. If we find a child hasn’t made it to class, they will need to be escorted by one of their parents for the next few weeks to be sure.
- Children who are in Sunday School must stay with their class. If they have a problem they will either be escorted to their parent or their parent will be fetched to come to them. We cannot allow children to leave the room and go find their parents on their own.
- If your child plays in a room (and sometimes that is fine) you are responsible for checking the room and making sure it is picked up afterwards. It isn’t fair for others to have to pick up after your child.
Thank you for sharing your children with us! Let us know of questions, problems, concerns, or celebrations.
