Kids

We are missing you and your family!

During this season when we are apart, we’re providing weekly spiritual formation resources for your family here. Each week, you can find:

  • New virtual worship videos for pre-school & grade school
  • A weekly family devotional called Faith Five that builds upon teachings in the week’s videos
  • Other family devotional, kids Bible, and book recommendations here
This fall we’ll be delving into Notes from Jesus by Mikal Keefer as part of our fall virtual worship series. Packed with fun illustrations, Bible verses, and ideas for getting to know Jesus better, Notes from Jesus is the perfect book for kids wanting Jesus to be their BFF!
If you haven’t grabbed a copy of this book yet, they’ll be available in a basket outside the JW New Commons this Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, & next Sunday. Or email Mimi to pick it up at her house!
