Children’s Church—Every Sunday
Come to the 9:00 am Worship Service. Right after the Young Disciples time, children in preschool through 5th grade are invited to join Kelly Paynter and the Children’s Ministry Team for Children’s Church upstairs in Fellowship Hall. This year we are Digging Into the Bible in One Year, taking kids on a journey from Genesis to Revelation. Kids will experience a relationship with God through the eyes of ordinary Bible people and discover that they’re a lot like people God has always loved and worked through. Children’s Church is a full of interactive Bible lessons, games, experiments and fun! Please note: Children’s Church concludes at 10:15am. At that time, you may pick up your child for fellowship and refreshments or allow them to remain upstairs, with our fun child-care providers until the fellowship hour ends at 11:00am.

With the help of Jesus we desire to be intentional about the time we spend with kids each week. Children’s Ministry at CongoPres aims to:
- Partner with families in teaching the Gospel message of Jesus to their children.
- Know each child by name and make them feel cared for and welcome.
- Encourage children to explore God’s Word in fun and engaging ways.
- Give kids the opportunity to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus.
