Welcome to Faith Formation for Kids age 3 through Kindergarten! New kids and visitors are welcome any time!
Nativity is a loving community where kids and their families can practice faith habits like prayer, worship, Bible study, giving and service to others. Nativity partners with parents to nurture faith by encouraging kids to love God and love our neighbor.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
What to expect:
Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten meet Saturdays at 5:30, Sundays at 9:00 and 10:30 from Sept. to mid-May. Kids begin in worship with their parents until the pastor calls the kids forward for “Time with Children.” After “Time with Children,” parents bring their kids downstairs to Room 118 for a fun, interactive music time. Finally, class leaders bring the kids to their classrooms where they can experience God’s love through creative activities including Bible stories, arts and crafts, movies and games. Throughout the year we have seasonal Family Festivals that feature fun, faith-based activities for all ages to enjoy together!
Parents and high school students support Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten by being age-group leaders for a 2-month session during the school year.
