Children’s Ministries

Coronavirus Update:

While we are meeting virtually on Sunday mornings due to the coronavirus, we are sharing a short children’s message for 10-15 minutes every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. via Open Door Churches’ Facebook Live Feed. You do NOT need to have a Facebook account to take part. To join us, click the button below.

Home-based Summer Camp

Kicks Off Monday, August 17th
CommUNITY Allies is a home based summer camp to inspire the young social activists in our community! The program kicks-off August 17th with material pick-up or drop-off (at your house) including a t-shirt, snacks, and supplies for all the activities. Families will have access to online videos with stories, music, lessons, art, science, and movement activities all about empathy, social activism, and our connection to the global community. Children will have an opportunity to explore how they can support efforts for change in their community. Visit our CommUNITY Allies website for more information and to register.
We’d love to have you and your families involved – and please pass this along to friends, neighbors, parent groups! We want to be sure families in Salem and Keizer have access to this material – it is really good. For those friends or family that might be leery of a camp led by a church, visit the LEARN MORE page of the website. The last question speaks to the “churchiness” of the program.

Children in Worship

Children are welcomed and encouraged to participate in worship! If you like, the ushers have activity bags with children’s bulletins and crayons for their enjoyment.

Childcare is available for infants through second grade in the Activity Room (Room 206 on the second floor of the historic sanctuary building) from 9:00 to 12:30 every Sunday.  Greeters are available to direct you.
