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 through Intergenerational ministry.  Each Intergenerational Sunday, we invite our grade school kids to stay with us during the service and participate through the Kid’s Bulletin, which is based on the days lesson.  Toddlers are welcome to go to the Toddler Room, where they will have snacks and stories.  At DeerGrove,  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 instead of communion.

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.  Every week we discuss how scripture can be applied to our every day lives and what it truly means to live as a disciple of Christ.

Toddler Room | 10:30am

Kids walking through age 3 are invited into our Toddler Room during parts of the service.  They will share in snacks and stories, prayers and activities as they learn to love God, themselves and their neighbors!

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

Our nursery is available upon request during our Corporate Worship time.

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

We have classes for preschool through 5th grade, focused on teaching God’s word through bible stories, crafts and activities.  Our mission is to empower our kids to love God with all of their heart, mind and strength and love others as themselves, following in Jesus footsteps as they grow as disciples.  Every week we send the kids home with a parent connection sheet, giving summaries of lessons and talking points for home so that families can continue to live in the word every day.
