Village Church believes children can know God
and worship him in faith, praise and prayer.
Volunteers work each week to demonstrate the love of Christ to children by building relationships with them, by implementing Bible lessons that are experiential and applicable to children’s lives, and by ensuring the lessons are learner-based and consistent with the Anglican tradition. Children’s volunteer workers lead children in praise with songs and in prayer for the Holy Spirit to be the teacher and helper in each lesson and in life.
Village Kids Overview
Children are always welcome to stay in the entire worship service if parents desire; however, we ask parents to be mindful of other worshippers during the sermon. If a child is struggling to be still or quiet during this time, parents may either take them to the check-in room, an upstairs parent room, or the nursery. Village Church nursery is for infants through 35 months and is manned with well-trained staff and volunteers.
The Village Kids Ministry Team invites preschoolers ages 3-kindergarten and elementary schoolers 1st-5th grades to dismiss to their classes prior to the sermon. Parents pick up nursery and preschool children during the Peace, but teachers bring elementary children to the sanctuary.
Village Kids Nursery and Preschool
Nursery and preschool classrooms for infants up through kindergarten are located in the upstairs hallway. Elementary children meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. All children in the nursery through 5th grade check in each Sunday at the Check-In table in the room behind the sanctuary.
Village Kids Elementary
Village Church believes in whole family worship! Therefore, preschool children and older worship together with their parents during all elements of worship except the sermon for all but Family Sunday, the fourth Sunday of each month. Children in 1st-5th grades stay in the service to participate in worship with their families.. Preschool children have the option to go to their class on Family Sunday.
Village Kids Safety
Village Church takes the safety of your children very seriously. Any worker who volunteers with children completes a background check and the Stewards of Children Online Training Program, Darkness to Light.

What Are My Kids Doing?
During the sermon time each week, children ages 2 through fifth grade are learning powerful Biblical truths through creative teaching. Our current curriculum is The Gospel Project:
Without the work of the gospel, the divide between the created and our Creator would be insurmountable. But there’s good news. God had a plan for His people.
We believe that God’s gospel project began “In the beginning” and continues today in the hearts and lives of His people. It is our greatest hope and the means by which we are free to love, serve, and follow Jesus Christ. The Gospel Project points people of all ages to the good news of the gospel and equip them to live gospel-filled lives individually, in community, and on mission.
The Gospel Project teaches through the entire Bible chronologically over a four-year period
