CHILDREN: GIFTS FROM GOD
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
- Mark 10:14
OUR CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
There is nothing that matters more than the development and well-being of our children. Community Congregational Church serves children of every stage through a variety of ministries.
Nursery serves our youngest congregants until their preschool years, when they are ready to participate in our interactive Sunday School ministries. During the worship service our children go downstairs into our beautiful classrooms and follow a curriculum that teaches biblical stories and biblical truths which children can apply to their lives. Games, science experiments, dancing and singing are all used to learn in a loving and fun environment.
Children are always invited to participate in the worship services through presentations, skits and music. Our Christmas Children's Pageant is always a highlight as well as Family Sundays where children ages 4-18 help leading the service.
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY COORDINATOR
Ella McGaunn is private vocal instructor working in Billerica, MA and pursuing her Masters in Speech Language Pathology at Emerson College. Truly, Ella's greatest joy is teaching and often finds herself in a teacher's role everywhere she goes; she started babysitting and serving in the nursery in her parents' church in fourth grade and never stopped.
Ella has served and taught infants through senior citizens, and she cherishes how beautiful God made each and every stage of life. Whether working as an SLP, teaching Sunday School or teaching singing, Ella believes the most important job in the world is to give the voiceless a voice.
When she's not teaching Ella enjoys performing improvisational comedy, singing classical music very loudly and pursuing experimental baking (because she rarely follows a recipe). Ella has a special interest in Developmental Psychology and hopes to use her passion to develop a Sunday School program that serves a wide range of students with a variety of needs.
