Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” — Matthew 19:13-14
At Crestwood, we believe the church should work together with families to engage the next generation. All children’s and nursery volunteers are background checked and trained.
Crestwood Children’s Ministry Strives to:
Partner with parents to provide resources that help families grow spiritually
Set a foundation for faith in Scripture at each stage of a child’s spiritual development
Provide another person of influence for each child to invest in their faith journey
Create learning environments for children to experience God in a unique way
Teach children they are here for a special purpose and are part of a God’s big story
Infants to Pre-Kindergarten: What to Expect
Drop off is in the nursery, at the end of the education wing. This area is accessible through the back of the building via Boyd Hall before Sunday School (9:15am) and by the left courtyard door during Sunday School; this door brings you directly to our nursery area as well as to the elementary Sunday School class.
The Bible is for everyone – from infants to elder statesmen! Crestwood meets every age where they are. Infants begin learning of Jesus’ love through music and prayer in a safe, caring environment. As our children mature through the toddler years, they engage in each week’s Bible story with different, creative activities that affirm God’s love for them and their place in His family through Jesus.
