Children's Ministry

 

We get it. Kids can be crazy, and at Park Street, we embrace it. We are invested in our kids and the ministries we provide to help disciple our kids to reflect the love and truth of Jesus in their lives.  As a church that has recently experienced a "baby boom," we know how important it is for your whole family to enjoy and grow through their Sunday morning worship times. If you have your hands full with new life, you'll be in good company at Park Street.

We offer nursery care and classes for 2 years - 5th grade during both our 9:00 and 10:30 services.  We welcome your children during one or both services.  In order to provide the most appropriate care and teaching, we divide our children into age age categories as follows:

Nursery: Infants - 2 Years 

Our nursery is a place where babies can sleep, play, and be messy while their parents and caretakers can worship without interruption.  At this age we are teaching them that the love of God is one where they are accepted and loved exactly the way they are.

*We also have a Nursing Mothers Room and Changing Area in both our sanctuary and gymnasium.

Preschool: 2 years - Pre-K

Our preschool classroom is full of energy as our children learn about Jesus.    We play together, snack, make crafts and worship to help further understand our bible stories each week.  

Elementary: K-5

In this age group we try to advance our children’s understanding of scripture and our goal is not just for our kids to know about Jesus but to know Jesus.  The kids dig a bit deeper into Bible stories while still having fun in a setting that facilitates questions, answers, and love.  We love to play games, worship and keep everyone actively engaged in learning through experiences where kids make discoveries, helping them to take ownership of their faith.
