children

We are committed to serving our youngest members by providing a safe and loving environment for them to experience the love and grace of Jesus. To adapt a familiar saying, we believe “it takes a church to raise a Christian” and take seriously our partnership with parents to nurture a child’s growth. The goal of our Children’s Ministry is to come alongside parents in preparing their children for worship through age-appropriate activities. We know that from birth, the love and care children receive will have a profound impact on their relationship with and understanding of our loving God.


You can find information about all our Children's Ministry classes and groups below. If you have any questions, please contact the Coordinator, Kate Austin. All Children's Ministry volunteers are screened and undergo a background check.

nursery (ages 0-3)

The youngest in our congregation are a welcome joy and often stay with their families for all or part of the worship service. When children need room to wiggle and play the nursery is available. Children ages 0-3 years are lovingly and safely cared for during the service.


Location: Room 203 (upstairs)

little lambs (ages 2-4)

Children ages 2-4 years old participate in a play-based class that meets downstairs during the worship service. The curriculum gently introduces simple Bible truths through age-appropriate songs, activities, and stories.

Doves (4K-1st grade)  eagles (2nd-5th Grade)

The focus of our children's education is Bible literacy and developing relationships with God. Children ages 4-5th Grade start worship with the congregation and meet as a class part way through the service. Students thrive as they develop relationships with teachers and each other in small groups and learn through stories, activities, and games.

Youth gatherings

Middle School. Students ages 10-13 meet weekly for Bible stories and discipleship during the 9 am Sunday Classes with enthusiastic teachers. The youth group also meets 1-2 times per month on Sunday evenings in homes for fellowship and fun. Occasional outings with the high school group provide positive relationships and role models within the Geneva community.
