Our Young Children’s Ministry (YCM) seeks to give children the opportunity to see God’s glory for the first time! We aim to support parents in training their children to become mature and equipped followers of Jesus Christ. In our YCM, you’ll find a place where children grow deeper in biblical literacy and understanding the Bible as one big story. In addition, parents find resources for reaching the next generation of our church.
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”
~ 2 Timothy 3:14-15
Sprouts (Birth – 3 year olds)
Sprouts is where it all begins! Our goal is far more than just childcare on Sunday mornings; in everything we do – from rocking tiny babies to leading 4 year olds in song – we are intentional about teaching our children the whole counsel of God.
What Can You Expect?
We have separate age-specific rooms. In each one, security and safety are critical. Both caring trained staff and members serve in these rooms each week. The familiarity of having the same nursery staff (i.e. teachers) each week enables children to feel secure and comfortable when you leave. Our nursery staff have been certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
We use the Gospel Project curriculum, a well-grounded curricula that is committed to teaching the Bible in its entirety. In addition, we begin teaching the First Catechism in our two year old classroom. During the Sunday School hour, we have trained Sunday School teachers that serve for 8 weeks at a time. A time of music and worship is led for the two and three year olds during the second hour.
We are so excited to see the Lord at work in Sprouts and would love for you to get involved to see for yourself what all the Lord is doing! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving in some capacity. We have several opportunities for you!
