Children’s Ministry Overview

9:00 am Sundays

  • Infants through toddlers are cared for in the nursery.

  • 3 year-olds (3 years old by Sept. 1) through Kindergarteners participate in First Steps in Faith, a creative and imaginative approach to teaching the stories of God’s people. First Steps in Faith connects biblical stories with the child’s own experience and encourages curiosity and imagination as we discover the mystery and joy of God.

  • 1st graders – 5th graders participate in Elementary Faith Builders. We are using a new
    curriculum by Cokesbury called Celebrate Wonder! Every week we will explore stories from the Bible through music, crafts, a short video, and games!

  • Elementary Faith Builders children attend the beginning of worship with their family and following Words for Children, are dismissed as a group to go to Sunday School.

See Youth page for 6th graders through High School.

See children’s music programs on Music page.

Our little ones are cared for by nurturing adults and youth who provide a warm and comforting experience. You will be asked to sign in when you drop off and pick up your child. Submitting a Children’s Ministry registration form will give us additional information about your child and enable us to better care for him or her.

Children’s Ministry Update


Mark your calendars for Saturdays – June 25, July 30, August 27, and October 1 for our NEW Spirited Kids Adventures! Our new monthly format will lead us into forming a new youth group just for Elementary aged kids! Our theme will be “Holy Spirit Activate!” Each month our kiddos will learn about how the Holy Spirit is alive in all aspects of the elements. June we will learn about how to activate the Holy Spirit by taking care of the Earth. The following months will focus on air, water, fire, and space! Each day will be at differing times and locations, so click this link to take you to the page with more details.
