Children’s Ministry

14(Jesus said,) “Let the children come to me; do not stop them, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 15Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” 16And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.

Mark 10:13-16

As a community of faith, Epiphany offers various ministries to help nurture family relationships through the different stages of life. We focus on how we can help foster a child’s faith journey through worship, learning, service, and fellowship. We strive to support parents and caregivers in living out their baptismal promise to help their children grow in the Christian faith and life. Programming includes first communion classes, Sunday morning education opportunities and Bible Sunday.


This fall we focus on stories from the lectionary and stories about Jesus! All adult guides are background-checked.
  • Youngest age group: preschool, ages 3-5
  • Middle age group: kindergarten through 2nd grade
  • Oldest age group: 3rd through 5th grade
  • Sign-in takes place upstairs in the Gathering Space, after communion, around 9:45 a.m. 
  • Kids grouped by age are led to classroom areas on the lower level. 
  • Sign-out takes place in Paradise Park on the lower level at 10:30 a.m., in time for families to arrive for the 10:30 a.m. service with their kids before the children’s message.
Before signing in your child for the first time, please complete our digital Parental Consent Form
