Children’s Ministry

Get Involved

We firmly believe that children are a vital part of our church family. At this time, our usual classes and children’s ministry programs are paused, but this fall we are offering Kids Club for potty-trained 3’s through 1st graders. We will be singing, playing games, and memorizing The Lord’s Prayer together during the sermon.

For our younger children, we would like to help connect families with other families/volunteers who are willing to help care for a child during the sermon so that parents can focus on the preaching, uninterrupted. If you are a parent who would like to receive help during the sermon with your baby/toddler, or if you are a parent/volunteer who is willing to help take a child one Sunday a month (or every other month), please reach out to Katie Gignac. She will keep a list of families/children who need to be taken into consideration each week, and reach out to families and volunteers accordingly.

We also encourage families with children of all ages to join us for our weekly worship gathering. We will continue providing activity bags for younger children and would love to have them join us each week. We hope to see you there!
