Children's Programs

Village Children’s Church is a community of children and adults who come together to grow in faith, love, and hope through learning spiritual practices, studying Bible stories and themes, helping others, and having fun.

Children’s Church is a sacred place, a place set apart for a holy purpose, a place for learning, sharing, caring and fun. Learning gives us a foundation of faith, love, and hope that will persevere. Sharing creates a caring community of friends sharing a common goal; a safe place to play and pray. Caring helps us look beyond ourselves and our friends and to share love with the greater community. Fun is just – well, fun.

What does this look like? From preschool to 8th grade it has many faces:

  • Creating original enactments of Bible stories, painting murals for orphanages in Ecuador, waving palms on Palm Sunday…
  • A windsock, a heart with a drawing of a family, a seed to grow…
  • Making cookies for adults with developmental disabilities, laughing hysterically as we play games, singing at Babson night…
  • A spice box, a communion service, a science experiment…
  • Sharing a story during sacred space time, making scarves for Boston’s homeless, giving books to the children of Fumbelo…
  • A movie night, a Christmas craft project, an Easter Egg hunt…
  • Reciting Psalm 23, cooking, learning the doxology…
  • A heartfelt card, a handprint, a soft prayer…
  • Sharing graham crackers and juice with friends, reading together in book groups, leading parts of worship for the grown-ups...and more!
