We miss seeing you in person each Sunday, and we want to connect with you throughout the week. We encourage families to use the resources provided on this page during a time that works well for your family. And be sure to join us for the weekly Kids’ Connection lesson via Zoom! Find more info below.
It feels like it’s been ages since we could meet in person. This has been a rough time for everyone. If your child could use an extra check-in with one of our leaders, please let us know! We would love to be an additional support during this time.
– Jamie Turk, Director of Children & Family Ministries
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.
So much fun in Kids Connection this morning! We love doing zoom with Ms. Jamie and our friends.
Kids’ Connection & KIDS 456
KIDS456 is a time for growth and connection for our kids in 4th-6th grade. We’ll begin meeting weekly in person starting Wednesday, April 7, 6:30-7:30pm, outdoors and masked.
We’re changing things up to get ready for in-person worship! See the latest plans for worship and other gatherings, and read on to see what that means for our kids! Starting April 25, we’ll no longer be meeting via Zoom for Kids’ Connection. The weekly bible lesson will be posted in our Facebook Group. At both 9:30 and 11am, kids will join their parents for the first part of worship. There will then be an opportunity for children to gather and go around the building to the playground for an age-appropriate Bible lesson and some playtime and fun! Your child can also stay with you doing worship, whatever works best for your family! Children are always welcome during service. Please note, the playground has those tiny little rocks, so we recommend you dress your kiddos in tennis shoes and not sandals. We will also need two volunteers for each service to assist, so watch this space for sign-ups coming soon! We’re not offering childcare for nursery aged children just yet, but hope to do that soon.

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.” :)
