5th Sunday - On months with 5 Sundays, we meet (on that 5th Sunday) in the Family Life Center at 10:30 for One Worship Service. Immediately following the service we have a "covered dish" luncheon. There is no Sunday school on 5th Sundays but child care and Kids Own Worship is still available. This is a wonderful time for the entire church to worship together.


Kids Own Worship - For younger worshipers, we offer worship experience geared toward children. This is at the 11:00 Sunday Worship Service as well as at 10:30 Worship Service on 5th Sundays. Kids Own Worship is in Room 102 in the Family Life Center for 4-year- olds through second graders. Children exit the worship service after the Doxology and are ready to be picked up by a parent in Room 102 after the worship service. Parents who would like for their children to receive communion with them (the 1st Sunday of each month) should keep their children in worship; otherwise, the children will receive communion during their time together. For more details click HERE to the children's page. Nursery is provided at all services for children ages 2-3 years old and infants. The Nursery is located in the Family Life Center (Room 104). Ask any Greeter or Usher, if you have any questions, please email: info@aldersgate.org
