Children & Youth

Child Care

Our nursery cares for children of all ages. We provide a loving, safe environment for all our children. We have a wide range of toys for all age levels as well as an outdoor play area. Parents are welcome to come and help their children settle in.

In addition to care during Sunday services, we provide childcare whenever there are programs or services at church involving parents.

Sunday School – 9 a.m.

We emphasize experiential interactive learning, and community. Teachers are trained and work in teams. We use a variety of curriculums, depending upon the age group. Kindergarten – 6th grade uses a Montessori-based curriculum called Godly Play. Godly Play uses beautiful natural materials to tell the stories of our faith, and art and play materials to respond.

Beginning January 8, 2017

Beginning on January 8, 2017, our Sunday School and youth groups will start at 9 a.m. Classes begin earlier than the worship service so that there will be plenty of time for a full lesson, and so that the children and their teachers can be in church for Communion. We’ve experimented for the past year with different starting times, and hopefully, this time will work for families. If you have kids, please come check out our extraordinary programs for them. Here are the schedule and locations:

  • Newborn/pre-Kindergarten – Nursery
  • Godly Play, K-3rd grade – Room 3
  • Junior Youth group, 4th-6th grade – Room 1
  • High School Youth Group, 9th-12th grade – youth room in the building in the parking lot

For more information, contact Daphne Vernon (dvernon@incarnationsantarosa.org). If you don’t see a group that fits your child we will place your child in the group that best meets their needs.

We have a dedicated and well-trained group of teachers and leaders. When you see them, please thank them for their work in forming and educating our young people in a life of faith:
