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.

Featured Events

Family Service Sunday

Children learn faith by doing and exploring. Join us on Family
Service Sunday to serve together. ALL ages can serve! (will have more information about project as we get closer to the date)

Parents Night Out

We are called to share compassion with one another. One way UCC does this is by giving families time to rest and recharge. Parents and caregivers, enjoy three hours of uninterrupted time as your children enjoy a fun evening of programming with Children’s Ministries. Our programs will engage infants to fifth graders with time to play, learn, and have fun together. $5 child/$10 total per family. Registration

Family Dinner

Join us for a Family Picnic! All families with children (infants-6th grade) are
invited to gather for fun, fellowship, time to play and connect with one
another. New to UCC? This is a wonderful time to make connections, meet
new people and find ways to engage in Family Ministries at UCC.

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. 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.

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.
