Children and Youth
We provide special age-appropriate opportunities from childcare to children’s classes, and from middle school to high school youth, with each developmental stage of children and youth in mind.
Meanwhile, we strive to provide support to young children who worship with their parents. We have an opportunity after the Children’s moment in worship for children to leave the adult worship and go to our Montessori-based program entitled “Children Worship and Wonder.”
Children’s Ministries in the 21st century have taken on new identities. They are implementing new language, embracing new technologies, and above all, taking the focus from education-based programming to holistic faith formation approaches.
“Faith formation is understood and perceived as an engaged process of learning and practice integrated throughout all aspects of congregational and daily life.” This definition allows for the combining of “head” and “heart” knowledge into a more holistic understanding and embodiment [of faith], rather than creating a dichotomy between these two areas.” Children Worship & Wonder is an essential part of this holistic faith formation approach and subscribes to the understanding that churches are creating lifelong disciples. If you want to learn more about this program visit us any Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Worship & Wonder
Worship & Wonder is our children’s small group for ages three thru 5th grade and meets every Sunday following the Children’s Moment during the 10:30 worship service. It is a program that provides children a place and atmosphere created just for them to worship God.
The Program is led by Nancy Crume.
