Nursery through Kindergarten Ministry is led by Renee Hoffman.

Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten

For Summer of 2021, join us for Family Faith Formation Outdoor Classes & Worship or At-Home Lessons

  • Nativity is committed to supporting you in your faith journey. Because children under the age of 12 are not yet able to receive a vaccination for COVID-19, we are continuing to offer online and outdoor options for families. We encourage you to cultivate new ways of exploring your faith together as a family. Each week, you can enjoy a virtual lesson that provides context, encourages discussion, and contains an element of fun!
  • SUMMER 2021 – We will offer Outdoor Worship and Faith Formation activities for families on Sundays at 10am in the West Parking Lot through August 15 (no meeting July 4).
  • Please be sure to REGISTER below to stay up to date on Nativity’s fall Faith Formation offerings. Filling out the form is quick and painless!

Children’s Choirs:
Music Movers (Older preschool and Kindergarten students, plus an adult)

A musical experience including songs of faith, rhythm activities, instruments, games, and pre-piano activities.

Children’s Choirs will meet remotely until we can safely resume in-person Children’s Ministry activities. For more info, contact 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.

For the Summer of 2021 the Kids Zone remains closed. It will resume when we are safely able to resume indoor in-person Children’s Ministry Activities. 

Faith Milestone

Kindergarten Backpack Blessing

The 2nd 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. 

Faith Milestone

Families of Faith: “4-Year- Old Nativity Sets”
