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.

Summer Park Picnic & Play

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. These forums will return this Fall. More information coming soon.

Summer Camps.

Summer means it's camp season! See below for what's on deck for camp opportunities in the coming months.

August 15th – 19th (9:00am – 12:00pm)

Setting up tents, exploring the pilgrim path, learning about our bee hives, and much more! Each day will include outdoor play, music, art and visits from special community guests. Lunch is not provided, but we will serve snacks each day. All are welcome! Ages Pre-K through those entering 6th grade this fall.

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.
