Children’s Ministry

Registration
When you arrive at Redeemer, please come to our check-in desk located at the rear of the building in the basement. Parking is available behind the church and offers convenient access to our Redeemer Kids area. Upon arrival, you will fill out an enrollment form. Each child will receive a nametag in addition to a security tag, which must be presented by a parent or authorized caregiver at pick-up. Children must wear a nametag in order to be admitted to class. Please note that we serve a snack of goldfish to all classes, so make sure to mention any allergies or dietary restrictions when you register.

Nursery
Our Nursery is staffed with both paid professionals and volunteers from within the church.

Ages 2-3
Children ages 2-3 have their own teachers and room to meet their needs.  During this time, children will be taught a Bible lesson, have a fun activity and a chance to play, and will be provided a snack.

Our current curriculum is The Gospel Project by Lifeway.

Ages 4 and up
Our children ages 4 and up begin their time together in the main worship service.  We believe it is important for our children to learn our hymns and songs, hear the liturgy, and get used to being a part of “Big Church.”

Before the sermon begins, children are dismissed from the worship service. Our teachers lead the children to their classroom where they will be taught a Bible lesson, have a fun activity and a chance to play, and will be provided a snack.

You are welcome to arrive a few minutes early to the service in order to walk your child to his/her room and meet the teachers.

Common Questions:

1) Can my child sit with me during the service instead of going to children’s church?  Yes.

2) At what age should my child be a part of the main worship service and not a part of children’s church?  We leave this decision to the parent, but we recommend that children above age 9 start attending the main service occasionally.  Although, they will not understand everything during this time, they should understand enough for it to be beneficial, and we encourage families worshiping together.

3) My child has been baptized. When should he or she begin receiving communion? We encourage children who have been baptized to remain in the worship service on communion days so that they may partake in the Lord’s Supper as members of the body of believers.
