Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten

For Fall of 2021, join us for 3-K Faith Formation Outdoor Classes or Family At-Home Lessons

  • Nativity is committed to supporting you in your faith journey. We are so excited to be offering classes this fall! Our 3-K Class will be meeting outdoors, as weather allows.
  • Because children under the age of 12 are not yet able to receive a vaccination for COVID-19, we are continuing to offer online options for families. Each week, you can enjoy a virtual lesson that provides context, encourages discussion, and contains an element of fun!
  • FALL 2021 – We will offer Faith Formation activities on Sundays during the 9am and 10:30am services
  • 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!

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.
