Families with Children


Nursery Option for Our Youngest Friends

Each Sunday morning, week after week, with consistent presence and love Nancy Paradis welcomes and cares for our youngest friends in the nursery. Kids are always welcome in worship but for those times or those kids for whom that is hard? Nursery care is available is in the Parish House, the big white building on the left side of the brick driveway. Entrance is through the porch.

Kids at Main Street Church


Created, loved and needed by God - and part of a community of many generations. This is what we seek to have our kids know and feel.

We seek to balance opportunities for our kids to experience God’s love with we older folks and with others their age. We support parents in instilling faith practices at home and build on those with Sunday School. During the school year Jennifer Stinson coordinates an all ages learning time for our friends in kindergarten through grade 8. Our Spark Rotation curriculum helps our kids connect to our sacred stories through a variety of activities and experiences.

Kids start out each week in “big church” all of worshipping together and after a children’s message they go to Sunday School (in the Parish House across the driveway). The first Sunday of the month, through the summer and on special occasions they stay with all of us for the whole time having our worship really represent the whole body of Christ - from infants to 100 plus. There are many ways for kids to participate in the worship service, contact us and let us know.

From Jennifer:

It is with great excitement that we announce Sunday School is starting up again on September 10th! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer filled with all your favorite activities.  Our family had lots of beach time, visiting with summer friends and family, a celebration of 50 years of marriage, ice cream cones and late bedtimes.  I always know the end of summer has arrived when we find ourselves at the Martha’s Vineyard Fair.  Bittersweet.  We are creating lots of great memories for years to come. To start the school year, we will be using a new Sunday school curriculum this year called Spill The Beans.  Our lessons in Sunday school will coincide with what Joan is teaching in big church to give some depth to our learning!  The goal will be to engage our children with biblical narrative, so that these stories may shape their own story of faith.  I look forward to exploring these new lessons and being a part of another year of learning about God and connecting with our community.

Thank you! Best Regards, Jennifer
