CHILDren's ministry

Welcome to Children's Ministry!

What a blessing it is to serve children and parents in our city and support them in their journey as disciples. Our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all children experience the love of Christ and grow in his word and gospel.

We gather together on Sundays by age and grade level, from nursery to 6th grade, so children can build authentic relationships with peers. While participating in Children’s Church and Sunday School, children are developing their biblical and theological knowledge in engaging and developmentally appropriate ways. Each year, we teach the story of the whole Bible from Creation to the New Heaven and New Earth with a different theme focus. Our hope and prayer is that by the time children enter Youth Ministry at the end of 6th grade, they will have a solid understanding of the Bible as one story about God’s redemptive plan to save the world through Jesus.

Interested in being a part of our ministry? We are always seeking volunteers for various roles in the Children’s Ministry, so please reach out if you are interested in plugging in!

Children's Ministry 10


Infants, Toddlers, Twos

The Advent Nursery provides young children with safe, loving care, giving parents respite and time for renewal on Sunday mornings, evenings, and during special services. Because the nursery is a child’s earliest contact with the church, we plant the seeds of the gospel through prayers, Bible verses, and songs of praise on Sunday mornings while older children in the Nursery participate in crafts and circle time.

Pre-school through sixth grade

Children's Ministry 12

The Advent Children’s Ministry befriends, educates, and encourages children in preschool and elementary school in Sunday school classes led by dedicated volunteers. Three- and four-year-old children spend the entire morning in their classes. Children in Kindergarten through third grade attend the 9:00 a.m. worship service in the Nave or Refectory with their parents and leave midway through the service. Fourth through sixth graders attend the entire service and gather with their class during the Christian Education hour at 10:15 a.m.
