Children's Ministries at Redeemer
Ages Birth – 6th Grade
Our vision is to help parents in the spiritual nurture of their children by seeing children GROW as disciples and GO make disciples.
We seek to do this in three ways as we teach children to:
KNOW Jesus, FOLLOW Jesus, and SHARE Jesus.
To KNOW JESUS through the story of God’s rescue: God’s family is called to tell the Gospel story from generation to generation. We are committed to telling God’s story of creation, fall, redemption to our children trusting that through this they will encounter the person of Jesus Christ.
To FOLLOW JESUS by knowing our place in his story: We desire that our children know their place in God’s story, and we encourage them to follow Jesus faithfully in all areas of their life.
To SHARE the story and love of JESUS: From a young age, we want our children to have opportunities to serve and share God’s story with others.
KNOW JESUS: Sunday School & Children’s Church
FOLLOW JESUS: Monthly and quarterly gatherings by age groups and through our community modeling Gospel-driven lives
SHARE the Story and Love of JESUS: Vacation Bible School and other special events
Our ministries to children flow from our vision and mission.
Childcare is available for babies and toddlers (ages 0-3 years) during both services as well as during Sunday School.
Infants - babies 6 weeks through walking (Room 7)
Toddlers –walkers through age 3 (Room 6)
If you are new, please check in with the Nursery Coordinator at the desk in the main hallway.
All children are welcome in worship. Prior to the sermon, children 3 through 5 years of age have the option of attending Children's Church where they will have singing and a lesson, including a short teaching time by one of our elders.
At 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings, there are age appropriate Sunday School classes for Toddlers through 6th Grade.
During our Women’s Bible Study on Wednesday mornings, there is childcare for babies, a class for toddler and preschoolers, as well as supervision for school-age children (ex. Homeschoolers or children who are tracked out). The toddlers learn basic elements of our faith (ex. “God made us” and “God loves us”) from Matthias Media’s Teaching Little Ones material. The preschoolers learn the children’s catechism through the Kids’ Quest material.
Students in 5th and 6th grade are invited to our monthly Gatherings to spend time getting to know each other, having fun and having a devotional time together.
VBS is a great way for us to reach out to our children, friends and neighbors to share the story and love of Jesus. It’s like camp: the children will be “hiking” through the book of Luke, worshiping through songs, creating awesome crafts and playing incredible outdoor games (and it’s FREE!). VBS is for children age 4 through rising 5th grade.
Middle Schoolers can participate in activities for their age during VBS week. For details
WANT TO BE A VOLUNTEER?
All of our ministry to children depends on many volunteer hands. There are lots of opportunities to work directly with the children, but there is also work to be done behind the scenes, so if “kids aren’t your thing” we can still find a place for you. All volunteers will go through a screening process and will need to complete a background check. There are various opportunities for training throughout the year depending on what area you are working with.
