Each month we host a Drive Thru Event for you can drive by church to see your teachers socially distanced, pick up a Faith Formation Kit with crafts and activities for the month, join in activities you can do as a family, pray together and send you with a special blessing.

Social Distanced In Person Events 

We are planning some additional outdoor in-person activities throughout the fall following recommended safety precautions, like Mini Driveway Lessons and Parking Lot Parties.

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.

For Fall of 2020 this Milestone will be part of our September Drive Thru Event or you can request a Blessing Kit to be mailed to your home.

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. 

For Fall of 2020 we will be sending out the “Bible-mobile” to deliver Spark Story Bibles to our 3 year old families at their homes! This will include a Mini Driveway Lesson to get to know your new Bible and meet Squiggles!

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