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 NEW Children's Ministry Center. 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.
