Jesus was clear about his relationship with children when he told his followers, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:14). We also realize that God created children with all their wiggles and giggles. We try to keep both of these in mind as we plan and provide opportunities for learning and fun.
We invite and encourage both you and your children to worship God with us. Sunday morning Services usually include either a puppet play by our “Faithful Friends” puppeteers or a brief children’s message designed specifically for the young ones in our midst.
We realize bringing younger children to the Services can be a daunting task, so we have compiled a few tips on worshiping with children which we hope will be helpful to you.
Faith offers Children's Sunday School classes for ages 0 through 6th grade, which includes a nursery for the younger ones. Our experienced and dedicated teachers are committed to helping children learn about God in fun and rewarding ways. Young children experience hands-on learning through Bible stories and crafts. As children grow, they are encouraged to explore their faith and their relationship with God via various Bible discovery activities.
Children under the age of 3 become part of our “nursery roll.” Parents of these children are provided Christian materials and ideas to help them teach even the youngest children how very much Jesus cares for them.
Each year during the Summer, children from our community enjoy Faith’s free Vacation Bible School. Games, Bible stories, songs, snacks and new friends make for a week of fun, learning and good memories. This popular event is open to children ages 3 through 6th grade.
In December, the children at Faith enjoy participating in the Live Nativity to share the story of Jesus’ birth.
