FAITH KIDS at home

Faith Kids is starting a new series this week. I am so excited to share 3 different age groups you can choose from - each age group includes a video lesson along with a parent guide to lead your child. I hope this resource will be a blessing to your family as you worship together! Mrs. Julie

Faith Kids

Children are precious to you, to us, and especially to God! We consider it a privilege to be entrusted with the care of your children. We commit to nurture, love, and teach them about God and how to have a relationship with Him through Jesus. Faith Kids is a fun and engaging place where children meet God, experience His love and learn to share that love with others under the guidance of trained, dedicated volunteers.

Elementary programming (5K - 3rd grade) is available during the 8:30 & 10:15 am church services during the school year. Extreme Discovery (XD for short, 4th - 6th grade) is offered at 10:15 am only during the school year. A special needs classroom is available the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, please contact Julie O'Toole for more information about registering your child (ages 5 years old and up) for the special needs classroom.

Nursery (6 months - 2 years old) and Early Childhood (ages 3 and 4) is available year round.



Parents of infants 6 months to age 2, can enjoy the church service knowing their child is well cared for and loved on by our experienced childcare workers. The goal of the nursery is to show God's love to each child through play-based interactions in a safe, nurturing environment. Children can participate in a variety of activities such as story time, indoor free play, outdoor play, puzzles, art and BUBBLES (a big hit among our littlest friends).

Early Childhood

Children ages 3 and 4 will enjoy a time of song, story, art and free play all designed for their specific developmental level. Bible lessons are created to include excitement and curiosity about what God's Word is. Dedicated teachers help little ones learn the foundational truths of God's love and faithfulness that are a vital part of spiritual development as they transition to Faith Kids.

Faith Kids

Faith Kids elementary programming includes ages kindergarten to third grade and is designed to give children a solid foundation from which to build their knowledge of and relationship with Jesus. Children in elementary programming will experience large group teaching which includes team building, basic Bible knowledge and story, worship and prayer. Small group time focuses on digging deeper into the story and scripture through a variety of activities and games. Building relationships with same-age peers who can serve as encouragers as they grow in faith together is a key element of Faith Kids.

Extreme Discovery (XD)

At Faith Church, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students have a place to call their own! Extreme Discovery (XD) is designed to help students transition from elementary programming to the junior high, Crossfire Ministry. In XD, students will learn about God's character and His love for us in ways that encourage critical thinking and developing their own personal relationship with Jesus. They will also explore topics that are relevant to everyday life and gather "tools" which can help them manage real-world situations in ways that honor God.

Through games, small group discussion, scripture study and interactive teaching; students will learn to appreciate the way their Creator uniquely crafted them and how He gifted them to be used in mighty ways! 

Students are also invited to participate in Secret Adventures where the XD group goes on an afternoon adventure with their leaders. Secret Adventures in the past have included: pumpkin patch, Maribel caves, Rahr Memorial School Forest sledding and snowshoeing and many more!

XD meets every Sunday at 10:15 in the Youth Room.

child dedication

Child Dedications are done at Faith Church as a way for parents to publically acknowledge their faith and the desire to raise their child in a way the honors God in the hope that one day their child will choose to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Child dedications are also an acknowledgement that children are gifts from God and that parents are dedicating themselves and their child to the Lord. This means lovingly training children up in the ways of the Lord, being examples themselves of a God honoring life and understanding that they need God's help to do this. Parents also understand the importance of family, friends and the church body for support and encouragement.  

For more information on child dedication, please contact Ivy Voeltz, Early Childhood Director
