Children's Ministry

Parents are the primary resource for nurturing the spiritual development of their children. Our desire at Pathways is to partner with families to help children develop a transforming relationship with Jesus. Our Children’s Ministry serves families with children in every age group.


Nursery & Preschool

  • 9:15 am Bible Study
    Infants, toddlers and preschoolers are provided with a safe, positive, and nurturing environment that reflects the love of Jesus. Using creative Bible teaching and application activities, children learn Bible stories and basic Biblical truths.
  • 10:30 am Extended Session
    During the worship service, care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers is extended so parents may worship freely while their children are nurtured in a loving environment by Pathways volunteers.


Elementary — Kindergarten to 5th grade

  • 9:15 am Bible Study
    Using creative Bible teaching in a large group setting and small group application activities, children will learn Bible stories centered around a core virtue and Bible verse each month. We want kids to grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship as modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
    Wisdom — I need to make the wise choice.
    Faith — I can trust God no matter what.
    Friendship — I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
  • 10:30 am Children’s Church
    Our children in K-5th grade begin in the worship service with their parents in the sanctuary and then, before the sermon, are invited to be a part of Children's Church in the chapel. It is an opportunity for children to express themselves freely in worship. We focus on building their understanding of the Bible in a relevant manner to them and promoting a meaningful relationship with God in unique and creative ways.
