Children’s ministry is important at Union View because kids are made in the image of God and can have a life saving relationship with Jesus. Like everything else, our children’s ministry is aimed at helping children know and delight in Christ. We strive to make that happen in three ways.
Children’s Sunday morning classes
Every Sunday morning our church gathers for a time of corporate prayer at 10am. During that time we nursery as well as two classes for Children. One for 3 to 5 year olds, and another for 1st through 5th graders. We take this opportunity to teach our children the Bible and lead them to know and delight in Jesus.
Children’s small groups
Sunday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 we have a ministry geared for children that includes music, interactive teaching, and learning activities. Kids ages 4 through 5th grade start off in a large group and then split into smaller groups for teaching. (we also have adult small groups during that time for parents)
At least once a month we have children’s church during the 11am Sunday morning gathering. During that time children are taught the Bible in ways that directly engage them. The other Sundays in the month we ask our children (over age 4) to stay in the 11am Sunday morning gathering. We believe it is important for both of these things to take place, so that children are directly engaged as well as worship Jesus with their family and the rest of the church.
note: we provide a full nursery from birth to age 4 during prayer time on Sundays at 10am, corporate worship on Sundays at 11am, and adult small groups held at the church on Sunday evenings at 6pm.
