Kids Age 3 Through Kindergarten

Families of Littles Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten

Join us Sundays during both 9 & 10:30am Worship hours. Start together in Worship, then after the Time with Children, teachers will lead the children to their class space (outdoors in the fall & spring as weather allows). Each week we provide lessons, activities and Bible stories similar to those being used in Worship to help your family experience the love of Jesus together. Children 0-2 are welcome to join with a parent/caregiver as well!

Please be sure to REGISTER below to stay up to date on Nativity’s Faith Formation offerings. Filling out the form is quick and painless!

Faith Milestone

Kindergarten Backpack Blessing

The 3rd Weekend of September during Worship

Kindergarteners are invited each year to bring their backpack to worship in September to be recognized for a big milestone in their life. Backpacks are our children’s constant companions as they go about their days at school. We will give each child a tag to put on their backpack to remind them that God is with them in their daily life and that their church family will be praying for them throughout the year.

Faith Milestone

3-Year- Old Spark Bible Presentation

 The 4th Weekend of September during Worship

Nativity presents Spark Story Bibles to our 3-year-olds in Worship as a celebration of the start of their faith journey, followed by a Meet Your Bible Class with their Family.
