Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

St. Stephen Reformed Church, Children’s Ministry exists to draw children closer to the Living God. 

  • We strive through persistent prayer and reliance on His power, to help children establish a firm knowledge of the entire Word of God.
  • We make every effort to communicate the Gospel in word and deed to children in our church and in our community.
  • We provide tools and opportunities that enable children to embrace Christ through consistent corporate and personal worship and service to God.
  • Finally, we desire to assist parents in the Christian nurture of their children. Our role is never to take the place of the parent, only to aid in the spiritual growth of their children.

All of our volunteers are screened for child protection and have completed background checks and training. We are blessed with gifted volunteers passionate about serving our church’s children.

We offer nursery care for children ages 0-3 during our 10:30 service. Sunday School is offered for ages 0-5th grade. The nursery is open during our 8:15 AM service if parents would prefer to attend the earlier service and need to step out for a bit. We provide a live audio feed from the Sanctuary so you won’t miss a thing while you take a moment to soothe, feed, or change your child.

That said, children are always welcome in all of our services. We understand that occasional noises are all part of their learning and growing as covenant members of the body of Christ.



The valuable work of children’s ministry starts in the nursery. We strive to create a warm and safe environment for our visitors and covenant children. Our nursery volunteers are compassionate and gracious individuals who love to care for babies and toddlers and recognize that being apart from mommy and daddy can be difficult during certain ages and stages. We take the work of providing loving care that cultivates spiritual development in the nursery very seriously. Our joy and privilege is to serve families by providing a place for their babies and toddlers to rest and play safely.

Sunday School

Sunday school is offered for infants through 5th grade during the 9:30-10:30 hour. We provide age-appropriate lessons that vary from season to season.

We desire that children would be able to establish a firm knowledge of the entire Word of God and understand how to put that knowledge into practice in their everyday lives. We offer classes for 0-18 months, 19 months-3 yrs, 4 yrs-2nd grade, and 3rd-5th grade. Our teachers are passionate and committed to teaching truth and grace to our covenant children. Lessons include music, crafts, and other activities to reinforce principles they are learning in fun and engaging ways.
