Children's Ministry




Building a strong and lasting foundation for each child 


Children are born with an innate sense of wonder and faith that is real and authentic. St. Paul’s-The Springs believes we have a responsibility to nurture that – to provide a foundation of experiences on which children build a life of learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith.

The goal of our Children’s Ministry is to provide children and their families with support in their faith journey and to share the stories and teachings of Jesus so that they may experience his deep and unconditional love. We want to build a strong foundation for each child that will be everlasting.

Our Children’s Ministries focuses on children from birth through grade 5. For families with older children, please visit our Youth Ministry page.

Children’s Chapel – preschool to grade 5
We believe that community worship is vital to our faith so that is where we begin and end our faith formation hour each week. A children’s message is offered at our 10:30 a.m. worship service. Children are invited to attend Children’s Chapel just following the children’s message for activities that are designed to enhance and further explore the message and lesson. Children return to the sanctuary and worship service following the sermon so they may share in the community worship experience.
Families may walk their children to the chapel and stay as long as their child needs to settle in. Our Children’s Chapel is located adjacent to the sanctuary and visible from the sanctuary through a large window wall – while you are sitting in the main service, you can always take a quick peek and see what the kids are doing.

Children’s Choir – Good News Singers
All kids age 2 – 11 are invited to join our fun children’s choir where we sing, play drums, and other instruments. Children’s choir meets on Sunday mornings from 9:45 – 10:15 a.m. during the school year.

For families of babies and toddlers
Babies and toddlers are always welcome in worship. Our sanctuary features a Pray-Ground where young children can experience worship through age-appropriate worship materials and tools that will help keep them engaged in what is happening — materials such as children’s Bibles and books, coloring/drawing materials, soft toys, Play-Doh and pipe cleaners and other manipulables. Rocking chairs are offered as a comfortable place to rock your child while attending worship services. Our Children’s Chapel also features a toddler’s table.

Seasonal Programs and Worship Leadership
Throughout the church seasons, special worship services and programs offer children opportunities to serve as readers, acolytes, musicians and more. We welcome people of all ages and abilities to serve in worship.
