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.


Infant - 3 Years                                                                                           

Nursery is offered during the morning 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's Church

Ages 3 - Kindergarten

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.
