Children and Family

How will our children learn to make ethical, moral decisions?  How will they encounter Life's wonder, awe, mystery and hope?  East Woods Presbyterian Church's Children's Ministry is committed to helping children build a joyous and loving relationship with God through knowing Jesus Christ and discovering God's Word in the Holy Bible.

It is our goal to excite, engage and instruct young disciples about the Word of God through age-appropriate activities, song, drama, crafts and games. Our teachers strive to connect with each child with compassion, gentleness and humility.  As children learn about God's teachings, they will discover their place in the church, how to apply these teachings to their lives and become true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Check out our "Events" page to see what special events may be coming up for your child.

Christmas Pageant

December 15th during service

Our Annual Christmas Pageant will be held on December 15th during the 10:00 a.m. service.

We will hold rehearsals during Sunday School on December 1 and 8, with a "dress rehearsal" on Saturday, December 14th. There will also be walk-on parts for all ages, pre-K through adult.

We hope that your children will be able to be a part of this simple but important telling of Jesus' birth.!

Sunday School for K-5th Grade

Children are invited to attend Sunday School following the

Time For Younger Disciples during our Worship Service

(children stay with their families the last Sunday of each month)

Our central focus is to connect the children with our Lord, Jesus Christ. We also want to help children develop a sense of deeper involvement and ownership around our worship liturgy and practices.  Worship happens when we praise God together.  Praise includes our petitions.

Worship is our gift to God.  More than this, worship involves giving God the honor God is due.  HONOR involves respect, gratitude and admiration; recognizing and embracing God as Creator, God's goodness, kindness and mercy, and God's most gracious gift of all, God's own Son, Jesus Christ.

Come join us as we celebrate and worship alongside our children.
