Children are a Gift from God

Sunday Morning Kids Ministry

There’s plenty to look forward to this fall at Grow Kids Ministry! For kids in fourth through sixth grade, we’re bringing back the Holy Moly program. This program focuses on one Bible story each week and invites kids to explore how it applies to their lives. For kids in preschool through third grade, we have a new program, Godly Play, based on the work of Dr. Jerome Berryman. During this time of worship, storytellers share stories of God with the kids using physical materials and guide kids to explore these stories with “I wonder . . .” questions. Afterwards, kids will have time to respond to the stories and build their faith through play. To learn more about the Godly Play program, click here.

Kids are invited to come for the 9:30 service on New Years Day in their pajamas for our PJs and Pop-tarts celebration in Kids Ministry. There will be lots of fun (and pop-tarts) upstairs during the worship service that you won’t want to miss! If you have any questions, email Angela Schroeder.

For Parents

As caregivers sometimes, it may be tricky to find ways to help kids spend time with God on their own, in an age-appropriate way. Here are few ways:

  • Use a good Bible translation
  • Teach kids ways to pray throughout the day
  • Play kid-friendly worship songs
