Children & Families
This ministry exists to partner with parents and caregivers to help children learn how to begin and develop a relationship with Jesus, and to lay the foundation for a missional lifestyle while nurturing the relationship of children and their families. Read more about our vision for this ministry.
Join us on Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
Children birth through 3 years are nurtured in the love of Jesus in a safe, loving environment. Caring volunteers share the love of Jesus with your young children as they have fun through play and movement in a space set up just for them. Children are returned to the Worship Center for Blessing with their families to close the service. For more information, contact Dee Ann Lord.
Kids age 4 thru 5th grade will explore what it means to have a lifelong relationship with God through age-appropriate lessons and activities. As they explore God’s character throughout the Bible, kids will discover what it means to reflect the heart of God in everyday life. Kids return to the Worship Center for Communion and Blessing with their families to close the service.
In addition to the group time on Sunday mornings, we are intentional about empowering parents to live out the story of Deuteronomy 6 with their families.
Program runs from September to May. For more information, contact Dee Ann Lord.
FAITH Milestones are significant events in the lives of children, youth and families that celebrate and nurture faith development. Faith formation is a life-long journey. By celebrating milestones along the way, we recognize how God is always present in our lives, equip families to practice their faith at home and encourage engagement in our community.
- Baptism – Parents who wish to have their child baptized are encouraged to visit with Pastor Jane.
- FAITH Family Bible Time – One of the exciting responsibilities we have as a community of faith is helping our children discover how amazing God’s story is, in their Bibles. FAITH Family Bible Time is our chance to come together and do just this! Watch for our next FAITH Family Bible opportunity for all families with children who are learning to read up through 5th grade and all in our FAITH family who would like to walk alongside these families. Your child will receive their own Bible and you will all have fun with family Bible activities.
- First Communion Workshop – Celebrating communion is a part of our weekly gathering, and we encourage families with children first grade or older to join us for a time of discovery and learning together to prepare children for taking part in this important gift Jesus gave. First communion workshops happen once or twice a year.
