Children's Ministry

We have enriching, caring programs for all of the children at our church.  Nursery care, Joy Journeys, and Whirl provide opportunities for children to see the love of God and the joy of Christian Community.  Read below to learn more.  




Each Sunday, we offer nursery care for our youngest ones, infants through 3 year olds. Our nursery is staffed by one paid nursery worker and at least one adult volunteer from the church. The nursery is located in Room 1 of the Children's Center.



Joy Journeys




Joy Journeys (3 years to 1st Grade)


Each week our youngest Sunday School children listen, wonder and respond to the sacred stories and parables from the Bible. They are guided by our story tellers and greeters in these wonderful stories

from the Young Children and Worship Curriculum and the Following Jesus Curriculum, both by Sonja Steward and Jerome Berryman.


Each Sunday we will start our morning with music time in preparation for performing for our congregation. We will periodically incorporate Kids 4 Mission Events and crafts in our schedule.




Whirl (Grades 2–5)


Whirl is a lectionary based Sunday School curriculum published by Sparkhouse, a division of Augsburg Fortress.  The weekly curriculum includes a short animated video which introduces the scripture lesson and then provides discussion, questioning, writing and games/crafts to reinforce the lesson. If desired, parents can sign up and view the weekly stories.



In order to better serve our church's families, we ask that one of the forms below is filled out and submitted for each child and youth.  Please fill them out and submit them to the church office.
