Our desire is to come alongside you as you seek to raise your children to love God and others. From your child’s earliest days through their teen years, we want them to experience worship, biblical Learning, and Christian community. Our Sunday morning children’s ministry is designed with that in mind! Below is a brief overview of what each age group will be learning.
Worship Service Hour
Children are an important part of the congregation. We intentionally include them in the worship service during the singing. This is a special time for families to worship the Lord together and for the church to worship across the generations. After the singing, the children are welcomed forward for a children’s message designed just for them. This time is called Ministry to Children. Everyone enjoys the children’s story. It has been shown that children who have been included in the worship service easily transition to attending church as adults.
YOUNG CHILDREN AND WORSHIP
4 years–1st Grade
Following the Ministry to Children ages 4 years-1st grade are escorted downstairs to our Young Children And Worship program. Young Children And Worship is a worship service designed for children. They recite the Lord’s Prayer and learn the Apostle’s Creed. They utilize sign language and sing praise to God. They enter into a Bible story as it is told with simple wood figures, then think about it together and respond in creative ways. They experience the mystery of prayer and the reading of God’s Word.
