Celebrate Wonder

Our children’s ministry program is designed to connect families to the church, so that together we can partner to build a foundation of faith for our children. We want your child to know that God loves them no matter what and that Jesus will be their best friend forever. We also want your child to know that kids are important at St. Paul’s and that their church family cares about them and is praying for them.

We use Celebrate Wonder, a Cokesbury curriculum, that engages children’s natural sense of curiosity to help them understand God’s love. It creates a safe environment for kids to ask big questions — helping them explore the Bible in ways that feed their imagination and encourages creativity. Through carefully-selected Bible stories, songs, videos, and hands-on activities, Celebrate Wonder gives children the tools to explore their faith while incorporating it into their daily lives.

The girls are loving the activities from the family discipleship kit. This morning I told Ava we were going to do an online Storytime with the library and she looked bummed. She said, “Oh. I was hoping we could do another Bible lesson.” :)

Kids are always welcome during worship! We have a special space for them near the front of the sanctuary, and we also offer age appropriate children’s ministry in the Nursery and Kids’ Connection spaces.

  • The nursery is offered during both services (Sundays at 9 and 11am)
  • Kids’ Connection (age 3 – grade 6) meets Sundays at 9 and 11am
  • KIDS456 (incoming 4th-6th grade) meets on November 7 and December 5 at 4pm.

Contact Pastor Sandra if you have questions about any of our activities for kids and families. We’d love to hear from you!
