Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry for Preschool through 5th grade.

Welcome to Chidlren's MInistry

Children’s Ministry at Our Savior exists to prepare children for a lifelong faith in Jesus Christ. We want to partner with you in raising your child to know that they are loved and saved by Jesus Christ.

At Our Savior, we are Family Focused

The foundation of the faith of a child is the nature of faith shaping practices in the Christian home. As a ministry, we seek to support how the faith is modeled and taught at home. Our children's ministry activities and resources are provided with that in mind.

Age Groups

Preschool

Preschool-aged children look at the world through eyes of wonder as they seek to discover everything in reach. The Preschool Ministry of Our Savior celebrates children as they explore the world around them and helps them to rest in the comfort of knowing they are loved by their family, their church community, and their Heavenly Father. We also want to make sure you have what you need as parents to walk this journey with them.

  • Preschool Bible Experience - Each week families can watch online videos to hear a Bible story, sing songs, and learn about how much Jesus loves them. Videos are available on the Preschool Hub.

  • Family Sunday SchoolOn Sunday mornings from 10:30-11:00 AM children and their parents gather together for family time and activities that help to teach the theme of that morning’s sermon.

  • Family Bible Experience – On Sunday evenings (throughout the school year) from 5:30-6:00 PM families spend time together learning about the theme of that night’s worship. Afterward, families gather at 6:00 PM for the Family Worship Service.

Early Elementary (K-3rd)

Elementary children are at a time where they are constantly learning as much as they can and exploring how they personally fit into this great big world. At Our Savior, we enjoy helping kids discover God's amazing story and how their individual story connects with His. We also want to walk by your side as you continue to raise your child to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Late Elementary (4th-5th)

Our goal for children and youth at Our Savior is to help young people and their families develop and grow in their lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. When a child is in fourth and fifth grade, they begin discovering what faith means to them. We want to walk alongside you and your child as they ask the tough questions and apply God’s Word to their daily lives.
