Jesus said: “‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.’ And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.” (Mark 10.14-16)



Children's Sunday School

Age 4 - grade 5


Our Sunday School children enjoy friendships with each other, crafts, and learning Bible stories through Sparkhouse Lectionary Curriculum that enhance their relationship with God and nature around us.  Our teachers include congregation volunteers who invite students into class with cheerful smiles, active participation, and grade level leaflets to use and take home, reinforcing the lesson.  


Mission is a big part of our Sunday School class.  Each year, our students plan and participate in 1-2 mission projects that serve a variety of organizations locally and globally. 

Classes run from September – May (with an occasional holiday breaks)

9:30 am - 10:20 am.

Children's Handbell Choir 


Our children love performing in our Vine’s Children’s Handbell Choir directed by our Joyful Noise Bell Choir director, Margaret Schafer.  Students perform with color-coded handbells several times during the year.  Each student has a colored t-shirt to wear over their own clothes on the day of their performance.

Cradle Roll

Our newest "members" are placed on a "Cradle Roll" at birth. Through this ministry the baby receives a baby bible.  When children reach the age of three, they "graduate" from Cradle Roll

Children's Message

Children’s Message is part of our regular worship service where the children are invited to the front of the sanctuary to hear a message specifically for them.


Each Sunday, there is a meaningful message about God’s world for children during the beginning of the worship hour.  We end our message time by inviting the congregation to pray with us. We encourage families to have their children come forward for this time during worship so they can share in the lesson.  We offer students a small candy treat of a Smartie for their participation.

We have a lovely nursery for children birth through Kindergarten staffed by our congregation volunteers during the worship hour.   We encourage families to worship together, however, if you would like your young ones to have a time to relax and play, they can go to the nursery after our Children’s message time with our Nursery volunteer.


The nursery does not always have a staffed attendant and may require parents/guardians of children in the nursery to remain with their child/ren.
