Kids

Your kids belong at Meetinghouse.

No matter your schedule or rhythms of life, Meetinghouse Church has a community or ministry space for your child to grow.

Providing a safe space for kids to wrestle with and explore God’s redemptive story of love and justice.

Sundays.

We have a variety of kids ministry programs. From newborn through 5th grade our ministry team is committed to embodying the love of Jesus with your kids.

Meetinghouse Nursery: A safe, dynamic space for your children to know they are loved by their community and Jesus.

Meetinghouse Pre K: Introductions to Bible stories, time for play and exploration as a Meetinghouse Pre-K community.

Meetinghouse Elementary: Social emotional learning in a group setting, using art, music and story to better understand how our lives are intertwined with the story of Jesus.

Wednesday Nights.

From September through May, our Wednesday nights are a rhythm that mixes a number of elements to make for a single journey aimed at creating deeper connection - among families, between caregivers and their kids, and to the broader church-community itself.

Wednesday Nights @ Meetinghouse Kids

– Time: 6:00 – 7:30pm
– Frequency: Weekly (see Calendar for exceptions)
– Location: Gathering Room 1
– Register: None required.

Maker’s Space: An interactive night where we have fun while co-creating episodes of the Unnamed Kids Show.

Treat Yo’ Self / Nana & Bumpa Night: Time for you to unplug while your kids have fun at church with our staff or more seasoned members of our congregation.

Congregational Ed: Space where members from our congregation facilitate fun and engaging lessons on topics or trades they’re passionate about.

The Unnamed Kids Show.

The Unnamed Kids Show is an interactive ministry series that follows the adventures of Georgie the Puppet, seeking to cultivate new interactions among families and explore topics of faith, relationships, and formation in a fun, engaging way. (Just don’t ask us about the name yet.)

Faith & Family.

Raising wholehearted and healthy kids takes love, wisdom, and a whole lot of support along the way. Join us for monthly gatherings at the intersection of faith & family, where we will seek to integrate our journeys with Jesus to significant topics.

For some families, anti-racism is being talked about regularly and some families don’t know where to begin the conversation. And no matter where parents find themselves, we all desire for our world to be an inclusive place where our kids and our neighbors all feel welcome.

Join Jenni Bratulich, Upper Room parent and Director of Development at Amazeworks, an organization that champions equity and belonging through an anti-bias education curriculum, as she shares and leads a discussion on what it looks like to do this anti-racism work as a family, what challenges arise, and what it looks like to do this in community.

– Date & Time: December 7th from 6:00 – 7:30pm
– Location: Gathering Room 1
– Cost: None
– Register: None required.

It takes a village to raise a family.

Our Kids Ministry is grounded in the idea that nurturing a child's journey with Jesus involves hands-on experiences and intergenerational partnership within the church-community. No matter where you're at or where you come from, we’re in it together with you to foster healthy connection and support for your child's journey, from birth through 5th Grade and beyond.

Meet the Team.
