A dinner church for young children and their families that is simple, sweet, and always wild. 

Meets every first and third Thursday of the month, 5:30-6:30 PM! From October to April! 

Starting again in the fall on October 3, 2024.

We believe the Spirit of God is the wildest thing of all!

Young children (with their adults and older siblings) are invited to gather for a simple meal, followed by worship in a circle on the floor, full of light, songs, bubble prayers, storytelling, and movement.

The gathering is meaningful for children who are infants to young elementary age.

Welcome is Important to Us! As we gather, children write their names or 'make their mark' on a welcome board that features a symbol relating to our story (a star, an angel, a water pitcher, a heart, a sheep). Later, in our worship circle, we talk about the symbol and welcome every child (and adult!) by saying, "N. God loves you!"

What do 'wild things' do?

'Church of the Wild Things' will grow your little one’s spirit with simple practices you can easily replicate and talk about at home: songs, candle-lighting, stories to act out, and symbols to spot when you are out-and-about running errands (like a heart, or angel, or star!)

Everyone is encouraged to participate in worship in the round, sitting on carpet squares--children, siblings, AND parents. And, of course, we'll get up to dance. Chairs are always available for folks who need them ;) 

But, first, before we do anything else, we'll eat! 

We believe that love is meant to be shared. The most important message of every 'Wild Things' gathering is "You are loved."


We believe that parents want to nurture their children's spirits and would like the support of a fun and loving community. 


We believe that families want to attend church together, and they want a church they feel really good about attending-- something short and sweet, welcoming and affirming (with food you don’t have to prepare yourself)!


When you walk through the door, you already belong. This is a church for all people.
