“And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.”
– Luke 2:52

Children’s Ministry at The Way
  Sundays at 9:00am | Check-in time 8:45am

NOTE: Children must turn 3 before the ministry year starts and MUST be potty trained. Children turning 3 during the ministry year will begin Rush the following ministry year.

The Rush

Before leaving 5th grade, most children form their entire idea of who God is and choose whether or not they will have a relationship with Him. We want to partner with families to help children discover and embrace a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by developing faith, wisdom, and friendships.

Our small group time allows the children to rotate through response stations. During these stations, the children respond through prayer, reading, crafts, wonder questions and stories! We invite the Holy Spirit to be with us as we respond!

The Rush programming is available on Sunday mornings during the Ignite I service at 9:00 am. Regular programming occurs in the fall through the spring, and fun activities are planned during the summer months. The Rush is open to children 3 years old through 6th grade.

If you have questions about The Way’s children’s ministry or want to volunteer, please contact We hope to see you soon!


3 Years–Kindergarten

What would happen if you found out about God so early in your life that you never lived a day without believing He really loved you? Do you think if a preschooler really believes God loves him, it will make a difference when he’s 14? How about 24? Would knowing God’s love change her future? Yes!

By partnering with families to help lay this foundation, through the Journey 252 program, we want to make sure all children know these three truths before kindergarten:

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my forever friend

1st Grade–4th Grade

Sing praise songs! Participate in fun games! Learn new Bible stories!

These are just some of the things the kids love about Journey 252. Using a variety of approaches, we want children to discover these three truths:

  • I can trust God no matter what!
  • I need to make the wise choice!
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated!

5th–6th Graders

Digging deep into Biblical truths in a fun and exciting way! Your children will explore, learn, and grow as they journey into the wonders of God and creation. We want to partner with families to help children experience a transformation in their lives—to inspire them to live differently every day of the week because of what God taught them on Sunday.
