Knox Kids

Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Luke 18:16

All ages and stages are invited to join us in our services.

Our community embraces and celebrates the joy (and the noises) of children in worship. We encourage you to sit close, so that your kids have a good view of everything happening up front. After the opening songs, we invite all of the kids forward to the front steps for a children’s sermon. Following the children’s sermon, our youngest congregants will be dismissed to Sunday School classes (Pre-K to 5th grade).

Sunday School is a time to wonder about God, the world, and one another.

During the school year, kids are divided into smaller classes and we wonder about God, the world, and one another using a a blend of Godly Play curriculum with Spark by Augsburg Fortress that explores Bible stories on a two year rotation.

Our nursery is open from the beginning of the service for kids up to 3 years old.

We have two nursery rooms–one for babies in arms and crawlers and another for toddlers. Our nursery is staffed with experienced childcare staff and volunteers. We want kids to experience church as a safe and fun place where they learn that they are loved by God and by our community. We know that kids go through stages of feeling comfortable being away from parents or guardians, so please come and stay with your kids as long as you need when you drop them off. We do ask that you sign your children in and out of the nursery and fill out a registration form when you arrive to let you know your child’s name and if they have any allergies.

Connecting with other families is an important part of your whole family’s faith development.

Throughout the year, we plan a few activities for the whole family to enjoy such as film nights on our lawn, outdoor concerts, and our annual BBQ and Bluegrass evening, so that you can get to know other families in our church. Check out the Adult Ministries page for more information about the Young Families Connection Group and about our covenant groups, which are intentionally intergenerational, so that families can connect with people in different life stages who are helpful partners on the journey of parenthood.
