We prioritize passing the faith on to the next generation. When we baptize believers' children at Faith CRC, our church family promises "to receive them in love, pray for them, help instruct them in the faith, and encourage and sustain them in the fellowship of believers." This communal commitment prompts us to lead our children and youth to a life of following Jesus.
Nursery is offered during the morning and evening services and is staffed by qualified volunteer members of Faith. Babies are welcomed into the infant nursery as soon as parents are comfortable leaving them. Children are invited to join the toddler nursery from the time they can walk well until they are three years old. A quiet, private mother’s room, where moms can care for their babies and watch the service, is located near the nurseries.
Children who are three years of age through Kindergarten are welcome in Children's Church. Children join in the first part of our morning worship service before leaving to participate in a worship experience designed especially for them. Through singing, crafts, and lessons children learn to love God because He first loved us. Our Children's Church is staffed with adult leaders and youth helpers.
Sunday school is a place for children to come to faith, grow in faith, and be encouraged to live in faith. Children in 1st through 5th grade meet to sing praise songs in the sanctuary right after the morning worship service. After about 15 minutes of singing, the children go to their classrooms for age-appropriate discussions and activities centered around the great stories of Scripture, studied in a unique five-year curriculum developed by and for Faith CRC.
GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting their Savior) Girls Club equips girls from grades 1 through 8 to grow in a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ as well as to develop positive relationships with their peers and GEMS leaders. At GEMS, girls will enjoy dynamic singing, creative movement, signing and dance, participate in team building, develop important life skills through badge activities, learn how to apply the Bible to their life, make creative and fun crafts, participate in service projects that make a difference in other‘s lives and find answers to challenges that face girls today.
Cadets Boys Club helps boys, grades 1 through 8, grow spiritually in all areas of life. Outdoor adventures, group activities, hands-on projects, and Bible studies encourage Cadets to model the Cadet code: "A Cadet must be reverent, obedient, compassionate, consecrated, trustworthy, pure, grateful, loyal, industrious, and cheerful."
Vacation Bible School is an exciting week in June where children, age 4 - through entering 5th grade, will learn about Jesus and His great love for us. VBS provides a fun-filled, Bible based experience all kids love. Each day the children will praise Jesus through song, hear a Bible story, make crafts, play games and eat snacks.
