For Families, Children & Youth

Families of all shapes, sizes, ages, and configurations are enthusiastically welcomed at Village Church. We are so glad you are thinking of joining us on a Sunday morning!

Worship and Child Care

We love to worship as a whole, intergenerational family. Our First Worship service is particularly well-suited to families with young children. During Second Worship, children begin in worship with their parents before departing for fun and engaging classes. If you would like to keep your child with you in worship, you are most welcome to do so. If you and your child would feel more comfortable elsewhere, the Family Room on the second floor is equipped with an audio feed so that parents can listen to the service while spending time with active or fussy little ones. Simply ask an usher to show you the way.

Our child care and Church School programs are full of joy and care for every child. Please visit the Sunday Mornings at Village Church  page to learn more about our programs for infants and toddlers, pre-K and kindergarteners, elementary schoolers, and middle schoolers.

Children’s Programs 

Village Church offers a comprehensive and creative Church School program for children from infants through eighth grade. Each week, children rotate through interactive learning environments, which include video and computer labs, cooking, arts and crafts, and dramatic play, all centered on learning the Christian story. To learn more about our programs for children, please contact Michaela McDonald or ask an usher to introduce you to her on Sunday morning.

Youth Programs

We also offer dynamic youth programs for middle and high school students. Youth Group is a place to explore and experience what it means to live in a Christian community by seeking and offering forgiveness, sharing authenticity and appreciations, blessing one another, and working to be a blessing in our world. Our Confirmation class is offered each year for 9th graders. To learn more about our programs for youth, please contact Pam Emslie or ask an usher to introduce you to her on Sunday morning.

Youth Music Programs

Our church is home to a vibrant and flourishing youth music program that includes children from kindergarten all the way through high school. To learn more, please contact Kevin McDonald or ask an usher to introduce you to him on Sunday morning.


At Village Church, we celebrate the sacrament of baptism to declare God’s love for the one being baptized and to welcome him or her into this family of faith. Baptism is available for people of all ages. Please call the church office at 781.235.1988 to speak with a pastor about baptism.
