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.

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 focusing on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Children’s Church is 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.

Loving child care for infants through age three is provided for the 9:00am Contemporary Service beginning at 8:45am.

CongoPres Kids’ Club—Wednesday Evenings September – May
There’s a place for all kids Preschool to 5th Grade at CongoPres Kids’ Club. A family style supper begins at 5:30pm, followed by Kids’ Club which meets 6:00-7:00pm. This year we are listening to the Focus on the Family production of Adventures In Odyssey. Each week at Kids’ Club we listen to an episode of Odyssey while snacking on popcorn and sitting on bean bags. Afterwards we talk about how the lesson applies to our lives and faith in Jesus. Our discussions are often as animated as the Odyssey productions themselves! Join us!
