Children are gifts from God, and Church of the Resurrection welcomes them in all aspects of our faith life together through our Children and Family Ministry. We often structure individual worship services to cater to children, and we offer a variety of programs to help youngsters and their families lead Christ-centered lives.
Preschool-4th graders and their families are invited to participate in virtual Sunday School this year. The monthly lesson plans include both tech and tech-free options, and the curriculum is tailored to support parents in guiding their child(ren)’s Christian education from home.
Fifth-graders participate in a specially designed Sunday school curriculum that teaches them all about worship and prepares them for Confirmation.
All families are invited to join us for drive-in worship on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday of each month at 10:00 AM. Worship from the comfort of your car in the church parking lot, while listening to the service on the radio! This short service (30-40 minutes) includes a children’s message and opportunities to “participate” by honking horns, flashing lights, and singing along!
On the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, families are invited to participate in virtual worship from home.
Breakfast in Bethlehem
This event, held on a Saturday near the beginning of December, is popular among families with children ages toddler through 2nd grade. Youngsters enjoy a pancake breakfast at church, hear the story of Jesus’ birth and have an opportunity to visit with a certain jolly man in a red suit.
Easter Egg Hunt
Families with children ages toddler through 2nd grade come together for this event, held the Saturday before Easter. Children learn about Jesus’ death and resurrection, then participate in a fun egg hunt throughout the church. There are plenty of eggs for every child, so no one has to worry about stiff competition!
First Communion Workshop
During this event, 5th-graders prepare to receive Holy Communion and learn how to serve as acolytes. Acolytes serve an important function during our worship services, lighting the candles in the sanctuary and assisting with communion and offering.
