Children's Ministry

Jesus said, “let the little children come to me.” Hearing, and valuing, Jesus’ words we love connecting with families and their kids. We support children and families in worship with activity pages, worship bags, a special children’s sermon at each service, and a comfortable “cry room” for when your child needs a little space.

Family Resource Library

We have a Family Resource Library for families with children of all ages!! This Family Resource Library is located in the bak of the cry room. The bookcase on the bottom is full of books that your child can use during the service! The lower bookshelf attached to the wall is DCE Stephanie's Bible, Devotional, & Religious Book recommendations for the month. The top bookshelf are books we have multiplies of (so feel free to take one home or one to share) and books for our teens and adults! You are welcome to borrow these books & use them at home! If you have any questions please talk with DCE Stephanie!

Bible Study for Parents


Calling all parents! Join DCE Stephanie for a two week Bible Study on how you can help you and your family remember your baptismal identity and grow more Christ-like! We will be talking about our families, exploring what the Bible says about teaching Children about God, looking at some resources that DCE Stephanie recommends and so much more! We will be meeting in Room D which is down the hallway from the Fellowship Hall. We hope you can join on us Sunday, October 3 and 17! Each family that attends will receive the book "Kindling the Heart: Family Edition," which is a devotion that you can use with your family. If you have any questions, please contact DCE Stephanie at dce@flcgainesville.org
