The GROVE


Our Kid's and Families Ministry provides a safe, nurturing environment where every child knows how much God loves them.  All families are encouraged and supported in their own faith journey.

This is a great place for kids to connect with each other through play.

godly play

Sunday morning program during worship

Kids are invited into the Biblical narrative by hearing and

responding to stories told with props, symbols, pictures, and toys. Then after each story, kids participate in Wonder and Art stations where they express what they heard and saw through art and play. In Godly play, spirituality is formed through awareness, discovery, and creativity. 


Hear It (ages 3-6)

Speak It (ages 6-9)

Think It (ages 9-12)


covid-19 precautions

Children will be required to wear masks. Staff and volunteers working with children will be required to wear masks as well. We will social distance as much as possible.

milestones

family activities and blessing

At these activities, kids learn about their faith and take on new responsibilities including leading the Lord’s Prayer and serving communion.  Milestone families are blessed during worship and kids are celebrated for taking a new step.
