Children's Ministry

Updated: Mar 12



Ministry activities for children, birth through 5th grade.


Our mission is to provide a loving, and safe, and fun environment where children may grow in their knowledge and love of God and develop meaningful relationships with adults and other children.


Childcare (Birth through 4 years) is provided on Sundays, 8:00 a.m. - Noon and 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, 5:00 – 7:15 p.m. Our leaders are experienced, trained staff members.


Sunday School for children involves committed teams of leaders, Bible-based curriculum, and hands-on activities.


9:15 – 10:15 a.m. (3 years through 5th Grade) All children are signed in upstairs and have a brief gathering time before moving to their classrooms.


1:30 – 2:30 p.m. (Grades 1-3, during 1:00 Swahili Worship)


Worship is for everyone, and children of all ages are welcome! However, children 0-4 are also welcome in the nursery and we hope you will bring them into worship to participate in Communion.


Wiggle Worship (4 through 7 years) is a special time after the Gospel lesson where children follow a priest or deacon and another adult to have an active time of worship during the sermon. They return during the Passing of the Peace before Communion.


Worship Bags are provided with supplies to help the children keep their hands busy as they participate in worship.


A Children’s Worship Guide is provided each week to help older children transition into more actively worshipping with their families.


Children’s Choir (Grades 2-5) Meets on Wednesdays, 5:15 to 5:55 p.m. (Contact the Children's Choir Director, Laura Dickson at laura.dickson@acu.edu)


Wednesday Night Activities during the school year, 6:30 – 7:15 p.m. following our family meal.

Child/Youth Information and Release Forms need to be filled out by each August so that we have the most up-to-date contact and safety information.


OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE:

Leaders and assistants are needed for ALL ministries with children. You are encouraged to visit with Carol Ann, our Director of Family Ministries, to see where you might best serve on a regular or occasional basis. Training and all materials will be provided. All leaders with children and youth also complete training and background checks through Safeguarding God’s Children and the Episcopal Diocese of NW TX.

Support for many ministries is also a needed and valuable way to serve without working directly with children.
