Living Well Children’s Ministries

LIVING WELL KIDS

At The Living Well everyone matters! At our Well Kids times we seek to partner with parents to build families of faith—teaching and practicing worship, prayer, God’s word, offerings and sharing our faith. Our trained volunteers help kids understand these principles in ways that are fun, memorable and practical. Our goal is to help you give them the tools to embrace and practice their faith in everyday life. 

Currently, The Living Well Kids program is offered for infants through 5th grade.  Our littlest kids, ages 0 to 4, spend the whole service downstairs, in their classroom, learning and playing.  In our 0 to 2 year old classroom, children read and hear Bible stories and are given opportunities to practice songs and themed verses.  The 3 to 4 year olds deepen their understanding of the Bible stories by engaging in activities, games and crafts that relate to our discipleship program.

Older children (Young Fives to 5th Grade), begin their worship experience with their families upstairs and are then dismissed from the worship after about 20 minutes.  The students separate into two small groups (Young Fives-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade) to spend time with their discipler (teacher) and deepen their understanding of the Bible story.  They also review the story by playing a game, doing a craft, and reviewing the series focus and Bible verse. 

**Children of all ages should be checked in prior to worship time.  Please visit The Living Well Kid’s desk downstairs to check in.

MOMS OF YOUNG CHILDREN

Bring the little ones to The Living Well on Thursdays from 9:30a.m. to 11:00a.m.  The children will have some play time, a craft, a snack and a Biblical story designed specifically for children ages 0 to 5.  Moms will meet to go deeper in God’s word and be encouraged by building relationships with one another!  Please check out our calendar page for specific dates!
