Kids Age 3 Through Kindergarten

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.

Faith Formation for Kids Age 3 through Kindergarten meet Sundays at 9:00 and 10:30 from Sept. to mid-May

“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 1 month session during the school year. Our parent co-op leading is vital to the success of our faith formation programs.

Kindergarteners are invited each year to bring their backpack to worship in September to be recognized for a big milestone in their life.
