Children’s Ministry

DeerGrove Children’s Ministry strives to be a place where kids can be kids and engage their relationship with God in age appropriate ways.  Our goal is to support and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their families.  Our programming at church is meant to fuel conversation within the family and build community in our kids.

Intergenerational Sunday | 1st Sunday of the Month

On the first Sunday of every month, we worship together. At the Kid’s Kiosk there are resources that may include a children’s bulletin, lap desks with markers, crayons and papers that your kids may use and return when the service has ended.  Each Intergenerational Sunday we come to the  Communion table with our whole family.  If your child is in the nursery or toddler room, we invite you to retrieve them in order to take Communion together as a family.  For those kids that are not yet ready to take Communion, they may receive a blessing from Pastor Melissa or Pastor Alicia

Kids’ Club during the Worship Service | Kid’s Club

Kids ages 4-4th grade are invited into Kids’ Club to engage in the morning’s scripture in an age appropriate way.  This invitation happens during the worship service.

Toddler Room | 10:30am

Kids walking through age 3 are invited into our Toddler Room during parts of the service.  They will be invited into their Toddler Room during the service.

Shepherd’s Fold on Sunday Mornings | 10:30am

Our nursery is available for infants six weeks to walking during the Corporate Worship Service.

Christian Formation on Sunday Mornings | 9:30-10:15am

We have classes for preschool through 5th grade. We begin at 9:30 with a time of connecting and a missional lesson before we enter our age specific class time which allows for kids to interact with the Word of God and apply it in a relevant way to their lives.  We end our hour with family time where parents join the class for take home application.  We ask that all parents return at 10:15 a.m. to learn about their kids’ lesson for the day and help their kids transition into the Corporate Worship service.
