Children/Youth

Children are a vital part of Faith Presbyterian Church. Through the ministries offered at Faith, we aim to assist families in laying a spiritual foundation that will, in God’s timing, lead every child into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Children’s Ministry serves children from birth to 6th grade and their families. To help meet the needs of all the children we split into three groups: FAITHlets (Birth to 3 years old), Club 3:16 (4 years old to 3rd grade) and Crossing Zone (4th – 6th grades). In everything we do, we strive to create an atmosphere filled with creativity and fun in the presence of God. We hope you and your children leave a program or event filled with the love of God. Our greatest hope is that each child will discover the greatest gift possible — a real, personal and constant relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Youth serves 7th through 12th grade students.

Nursery (0-3) – Faithlets

Nursery care is available for children birth to age three Sunday Mornings, Wednesday Evenings and during special events throughout the year.  Our goal is to create a loving and safe environment where your child can learn about and experience God’s love.

We recommend you bring a diaper, bottle/sippy cup and a change of clothes each time, as well as lovey or other item needed for comfort.  Snacks are provided. Please be sure that all your child’s belongings are clearly labeled with his or her name.

Safety and security are very important for all our children. When dropping your children off, please be sure to sign them in. Upon his or her first time in the nursery, you will be asked to fill out a short information card to aid our staff and volunteers in caring for your child. When you come to pick up your child, you will also need to sign him or her out.

NEW THIS YEAR: Toddler Sunday School class 9:15-10:15

Older Toddlers (about 18 months – 3 years old) are invited to explore who God is through stories, crafts, and play. We know that every child develops at a different pace, so it is the parent’s decision on when your child begins coming to Sunday School. When your child is able to sit and listen to short stories, and follow simple instructions, they should do well in this class. The flow of it will be free play while everyone arrives, gathering in a circle for a story, and then participating in a simple craft or activity relating to the story. The class will end with more free play. You are welcome to join your child in this class.

 

If you have any comments or questions about these ministries, or would like to volunteer in one of them, please contact Elizabeth the Director of Children’s Ministry.

Worship Our Way, also known as WOW, is designed to give children 4 years old to 3rd grade age-appropriate worship experience. Children will be begin worship with their parents and following the Moments with the Children, they will be dismissed to WOW, where they will continue in a worship service designed just for them. In WOW the children will be learning the rhythms and language of worship, and have a time to respond to the lesson for the day through crafts and activities. Children are also welcome and invited to stay in worship with their parents, if that is what is best for your family. For those children who choose to stay in worship, Worship bags are provided to help engage them in the service.
