For the kids

Keep Kids Engaged

Got kids? We love kids. Children are encouraged to participate in the worship service! Make the most of online worship – talk to them about the different parts of worship and why we pray together, listen to scripture and sing. Give your children a chance to make their faith their own whenever worshiping online.

Kids’ Worship

Kids worship in their own way with their own practices. We want to encourage them to be themselves as much as possible. We will begin our regular Kids’ Worship programming again soon.


Book recommendations

We have been reading some great books during Story Time in online worship. See what books we’ve shared in online worship in the list below.


Children can ask some tough questions, and caregivers don’t always feel prepared to answer them. Here’s a list of books that may help you talk to your child about grief.
