65556_335739343211281_150197786_nAt Sherwood Community Friends Church we believe children are at the very center of the heart of God. They are the church of today and the church of tomorrow. By helping kids learn about and connect with God, we are embedding hope for the future of God’s church and the world. We invite you and your child to join us as we worship together.

Our ministry with children is flexible to allow you as a parent to choose a worship format that allows your family to grow in relationship to God and to each other. Children are welcome to stay with their parents during the adult worship gathering or to participate in the age-appropriate activities of Kids Quest.

Infant Care

Your baby may stay with you during our worship gathering. If you desire to place your child in the nursery, our loving caregivers staff a nursery for infants ages 6 weeks to 18 months. This nursery is located on the main floor in the hallway behind the sanctuary.

Toddler Class

Our toddler class, meeting in a room on the lower level, is designed to provide a safe, stimulating environment for all 18- to 36-month-old children.

Pre-K & Kindergarten Class

Our early childhood ages are active in exploring their environment, getting to know those around them, and experiencing the presence of God. The singing and Bible study times are designed to help your child begin to explore stories in the Bible and how these stories apply to us today. Another important part of their time is spent learning about and experiencing God’s love for them. This class meets downstairs.

These students are exploring who they are in Christ and what it means to be a part of Sherwood Community Friends Church. After a brief time of praying for each other, they will gather with the younger kids for worship and then head off for their group time. Lessons are designed to help deepen their relationships with God.
