Children

We love kids and we are honored to come alongside and encourage families to witness the power of the Holy Spirit as our kids grow in their love of God and trust in Jesus.

On Sundays during the school year we make space for kids and leaders — nursery through 5th grade — to encounter the LORD and wonder about all that He has to say to us as we meet in small groups tailored to kids’ varying abilities and needs.

We believe that: God knows you (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:1-4, 13-14). He is crazy about you (John 10:11). He goes with you everywhere (Matthew 28:20).

Our kids’ small groups are a taste of what it’s like to live a life with Christ — reading the Bible and wondering about who God is and how we respond to Him, all while being together with others to pray and play, too

Have questions about how we can best care for the special needs of your family? Reach out to Louise.

Summer Sundays @ 9 & 11am: Elementary-aged kids join their families for worship in the sanctuary. There is a bookcase right outside the sanctuary with tools to help them track with all that’s going on in worship — journals and wiki stix to use and take home, pencils to borrow and return. 

For nursery and preschool-aged kids, we have kids’ small groups during each service. Nursery-aged kids (those who were not yet 3 by September 30, 2021) are welcome in the nursery throughout the whole service — just check in down the hall on the first floor. Preschoolers+rising kindergartners, and the grownups who love them, check in with their kids’ small group leaders on the first floor before heading up to the sanctuary for the opening worship. When kids are dismissed to go to their small groups, they meet their leaders outside the sanctuary and head downstairs to their small group rooms. Kids return to the sanctuary in time for the Eucharist. Nursery-aged kids are picked up after the service.

Storytime on Tuesdays @ 10: Beginning September 6, join us @ Oak Grove Park each Tuesday @ 10 for Storytime with Miss Louise and Miss Meredith. Kids and the grownups who love them are invited to bring a blanket and a buddy from 10-10:30 for picture book read alouds each Tuesday. If it’s raining, then we gather in the Fellowship Hall @ Restoration.

Anytime: Tune in to Pray & Ponder, our podcast for kids and the grownups who love them.
