ADVENT KIDS

Experiences for children to explore faith by connecting to God and others.

At Advent, we believe faith development happens at all ages. Our mission is helping kids and families grow in faith together. We do this when we:

  • Love God.
  • Love Others.
  • Go Share.

Sunday Morning LifeGroups

LifeGroups are one way we help children connect to each other and to God, to build their faith foundation. We meet to learn God’s story and to respond to God’s word through story, song, games, crafts, laughter, and discussion.

Each class has a sign indicating the grade or age level. Please let the teachers know of any allergies or special concerns. We are an inclusive congregation and will work with you to accommodate any special learning needs your child might have. We encourage parents to partner with our classes by serving in the classroom as a lead or assisting in the lesson time.

Checking in Your Child on Sunday Mornings: We use an electronic check-in system for your child’s safety. Please check-in all children using the system and be sure to keep your parent pick-up tag. Check-in begins 15 minutes before each service begins at 8:45am (9:00am service) and 10:15am (10:30am service).

NURSERY CARE

Ministry care for children 6 weeks - 2 years

Nursery care is provided for babies 6 weeks through 2 years on Sunday Mornings in the Education Building. Nursery Care is available every Sunday for all worship services. Our young babies and toddlers are lovingly cared for by fully trained caregivers. We consider our Nursery at Advent not to be childcare, but to be a ministry both to the child and the parent.

Nursery Requirements

  • All bags must be labeled with the child’s name.
  • We ask parents not bring food into the nursery due to the risk of food allergies (bottles of formula or breastmilk are acceptable).
  • If a snack is needed, we provide Cheerios, Goldfish and water.
  • If your child is potty training or potty trained, please make sure you bring a change of clothes, just in case!
  • Please let the nursery staff know of any special needs your child might have. We will do our best to accommodate them.
  • We ask that only well children attend nursery.
