Kids Age 3 Through Kindergarten

Welcome to Faith Formation for Kids age 3 through Kindergarten!

We are always pleased to welcome visitors and new friends to our growing community.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Nursery through Kindergarten Ministry is led by Renee Hoffman. Renee has a young son in the program and will work with families to find a truly transformational experience together.

What to expect:

Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten meet

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 will walk their 3-Kindergarteners to Room 218 (Across from the nursery) for a fun, interactive music time. Children will 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. Our parent co-op leading is vital to the success of our faith formation programs.

Children’s Choirs:

The “Nativity Singers,” kids in Kindergarten – Grade 2, practice Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 6:50 pm from September – May. Kids participate in worship usually on the second Sunday each month and in Christmas and spring musicals during the school.

Children’s Choirs are led by Karla Reiland

Nativity’s “Kid Zone”:

Located in the Commons area close to the sanctuary, the Kid Zone is a place for toddlers and kids to play while supervised by their parents. Kid-sized tables and chairs, Duplos, Bible story puzzles and books are available. The Kid Zone also has clipboards with coloring pictures and crayons that can be taken in to worship, as well as Faith Bags to use in worship. There is a monitor in the Kid Zone where parents can see and hear the worship service.
