Children's Ministries

Nursery

The nursery is available during the 9:00 a.m.  and 11:15 a.m. services, as well as Sunday School from 10:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

 

Newborn – 2 year olds 

Our nursery is a special place where children are nurtured and taught about the love of Jesus through hugs, songs, stories, and play.  Parents who would like to receive communion with their children are invited to pick them up in the nursery after The Peace and bring them into the church with them. 


Infants - room 101 

1 and 2 year olds - room 102 

3 and 4 year olds - room 107 

3 and 4 year olds


Children dropped off in room 107 for the 9:00 a.m. service will have a Bible story/activity time and plenty of time for play afterwards. Parents are welcome to pick them up after The Peace and bring them into the church for communion. They may be brought back to the classroom after the service if the parents are staying for Sunday School. Following the 9:00 a.m. worship services, the children are encouraged to stay for their own Grace Place Experience.

Alleluia Chapel

Alleluia Chapel takes place during the 9:00 a.m. service.  

  

We want the children of our church family to feel comfortable in church. To that end, we provide our little saints with a "beginning" worship environment that is positive and nurturing so that they will develop the same attitudes toward worshiping God.  We call this Alleluia Chapel and it is a Sunday morning worship experience that is held in the children’s chapel located in the Cotten Education Center.  Children from 4 to 8 years old leave before the Gospel Procession with our Children's Ministry Coordinator, Dolly Dunnam and other Alleluia Chapel teachers.  The children participate in a children’s Liturgy of the Word service,  help prepare the altar, listen to  a Bible story, recite a children’s creed, offer prayers and sing songs of praise.  They return to the service at the time of the Peace and rejoin their parents for the Eucharist.

Grace Place

Grace Place is our Sunday school for kids from preschool through fifth grade.  We meet from 10:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. 


The children (Age 4 – 5th grade) experience God’s love through our new curriculum “Faithweaver” which invites them into an all-embracing celebration of God’s kingdom. Grace Place is a wonderful opportunity for your child to grow in their knowledge of Christ surrounded by their peers and guided by our loving, dedicated shepherds. Through Grace Place, the children's faith will be nurtured in a fun, lively environment.

First Grade Bibles

  • Each year when school begins, All Saints Church presents a Bible to every 1st grader. Please register your child with Children’s Ministry. 

Children's Outreach

  • During the Lenten season we work on a global service project for El Hogar in Tegucigalpa, which is in our companion diocese of Honduras. During the Advent season the children of our church family prepare to reach out to those in our own local community who have unmet needs. We partner with families through our Love Wins outreach to bring the magic of Christmas to them.

Sacramental Preparation

  • For 4 Sundays at the beginning of Lent our 1st graders receive instruction in the sacrament of Holy Communion during Sunday School. Their parents are invited to share an instructed Eucharist with them on the final Sunday.

Seasonal Programs

Christmas Eve Pageant

 At the Christmas Eve 4:00 p.m. family service children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade participate as angels, shepherds, innkeepers, Mary and Joseph in a silent “tableau” as the Christmas story is narrated. The children’s choirs sing at this service. 

Children’s Stations of the Cross

 On Good Friday afternoon the children of our church family retrace the steps Jesus took through Jerusalem as he made his way to the cross. This is a wonderful way to draw them into a deeper understanding of the depth of Jesus’ love for them. They help him carry his cross with their prayers. It gives us an expectancy of the miracle of Easter morning and joy in celebrating the Resurrection. 

Flowering of the Cross

On Easter morning the children are invited to bring fresh flowers to place in the special cross on the front lawn of the church.

Vacation Bible School

Our annual VBS runs from 8:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  for one week in the summer. Rising Kindergarteners – rising 5th graders are welcome to join in the fun! We enthusiastically welcome youth group teens to assist us as we enjoy the playful, biblical fun!
