Children’s Church

Sundays [9 & 11:15 a.m.] – Multipurpose Room

Children’s Church is a wonderful place for children to learn how to engage in Sanctuary worship as well as to discover their own gifts in leading worship, prayer, and serving. Children’s Church is also designed to create a space for children to experience authentic diverse relationships.

After children worship together and hear the message, children split up into multi-age small groups where they respond to God’s word through journaling. They also share prayer requests and pray for one another. Parents are invited to pick up take-home activities that go with each message in order to continue talking about and applying the message at home throughout the week.

All children are also invited to worship in the sanctuary with you. After all, Children’s Church is modeled after adult worship. It uses many of the same songs that are used in the sanctuary and has a message that echoes the main sermon.

Universal Design

We are becoming a Universal Design Church!  What does that mean?  We hope to design an environment that makes all feel welcome, with wide-open and barrier-free access to worship and encouragement in finding your God-given role in the body of Christ.
Please watch for ways in which we are working to include everyone in our planning, and contact Pastor Kristi Lewis if you have specific ideas/requests or would like to know more about our efforts.  If you or your child would benefit from a personalized worship plan, would like to think through new ways to discover or share your gifts, or would like to request inclusion support like a trained aid while in our children’s or youth ministries, Pastor Kristi will also be your first contact: email Pastor Kristi.

If you want to know more about Children’s Church, or would like to serve in this area, please contact Children’s Pastor Kristen Lewis at 616.245.7791 ext. 213 or email.
