Family Ministry

Family Ministry

A fun, creative, loving, and disciple-making community!

We create an environment where children learn and share “the good news of Jesus Christ with open minds and loving hearts.”

Every child is perfectly created by God, loved by God, and can share God’s love in the world! We help your family create this foundation of faith by engaging sacred scripture, hands-on experiential learning for children, and family resources.

Sunday Programs
for Children

Children’s Worship

All children of all ages are welcome in all of our worship services. See services times and get directions here.

Children’s Worship at 9 am and 11 am for preschoolers (in south preschool wing) and elementary (outside on playground) is child-focused and child-led. On August 14 we will kick off our year-long series, The Heart of God, bringing a fresh approach to growing a lifelong relationship with God. Kids will explore God’s character throughout the Bible and learn how God transforms them from the inside out. Kids discover what it means to reflect God’s Heart in everyday life. All ages will experience the same scripture and theme each week, allowing for conversation in the family throughout the week.

Preschool Opportunities

Cribs–Pre-K Fours | Children’s Worship at 9 and 11am | Playground Faith at 10am

Preschoolers can play, learn, hear Bible stories and engage in hands-on faith experiences from 8:45am to after 11am traditional worship each Sunday.

Discovery Kids

(Sunday School classes August through May)

Kindergarten-3rd Grade | 10 am

Discovery is our hands-on, experiential learning program for young elementary ages. Each week we will Dig In to the stories of the Life of Jesus. Every week we provide new opportunities to learn about Jesus and put our faith into action.

Community Group, Jr.!

Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Graders | 11 am | Third Floor

Fourth, Fifth and Sixth graders will gather each week to create community and serve others. By exploring how we can join God at work in the world, we will brainstorm, find a need, do research and create a service and community project together. All kid inspired, created and promoted service learning.

What To Expect


Checking Your Child In

As a guest at UCC, we invite you to check in with our reception desk staff for a nametag and an opportunity for you to provide us with important safety information regarding your child.

Guests may also check in at any of our Children’s Check-In sites.

Picking Up Your Child

Drop Off and Pick up for Preschool in Walker Hall Hallway outside South Preschool Wing.

Drop off and pick up for Elementary in room 211.

Each child will have a guardian receipt printed. You can choose to have more than one guardian receipt printed if you plan to divide and conquer pickup after worship. When you return to pick up your child, please present your guardian receipt to the UCC staff member in the classroom.

Communion for All

Children’s Worship will incorporate the elements of communion, too.

All ages are welcome at Christ’s table, including children. We encourage children to take part in the Lord’s Supper, when the family feels they are ready, as they are an important part of our worshiping community.
