Children & Students

Partnering With Families to Nurture Faith

We believe the Bible clearly teaches that the family unit - especially parents - is the primary source and center for discipleship in the lives of children and teens. We also believe the Bible is equally clear that it is the role of the Church body to come alongside parents in this pursuit and help them in the disciple-making process.

Whether your child is a newborn in the Nursery or a 12th grader preparing to graduate, the mission we cultivate in our next generation is the same at every age: to bring glory to God by believing in Jesus, belonging to His family, becoming His disciple, and building His kingdom.

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 11:18-19

Family Ministries

Family Ministry at Kenmore

We have groups for children and students of all ages during our Sunday gathering time.

  • A Nursery for our youngest visitors with lots of toys and fun things for the littles ones to do.
  • A Potty trained through Kindergarten aged group that goes to the Tiny Glancers room (it's literally set up like a mini-kids museum featuring Kenmore Blvd. businesses!) where they’ll have a lesson and enjoy some play time.
  • Elementary age students stay with us during the music/worship portion of the morning, then go down to a living room style learning setting during the message.
  • Middle school and high school students stay with us for the message on Sundays. Ask one of our leaders or volunteers about the other middle and high school activities throughout the week that we’d love to invite your student to join.

Our volunteers are all background checked and required to attend several training sessions each year, with your child’s security and well-being as a focus. We do ask that children be symptom-free and no longer contagious with illness for 24 hours to help us protect the health of our little ones. Please let us know of any conditions, allergies, or medical needs that may apply to your child.

For more information about any of our children and student ministries, contact Michelle Gregory.
