Children, Youth & Families: The Greenhouse
Nurturing lifelong Christian faith in children, youth and families
The heart of a child is fertile soil ready for God seeds. It is in this place that we seek to nurture the abundant life Jesus offers all who come to him. From the first days of life through eighteen years of age, the Berkeley Covenant Church community seeks to nurture lifelong faith in Jesus Christ. Ministry to children, youth and families happen in our midst, intentionally. We seek to nurture the seeds Jesus plants through loving & authentic relationships, Bible-centered teaching, and grace-filled rhythms of loving mercy and doing justice together.
We Value Being:
Connected to God in prayer and worship.
Connected to one another across generations, where authentic faith and
trust in Christ is lived out, experienced and passed on.
Devoted to God’s word.
The Body of Christ where everyone is vital to God’s purposes.
Doers of justice & lovers of mercy together.
Nursery: Families, Caregivers, and Babies
God shelters and protects me.
We welcome nursing mothers and families with young children to enjoy the peace and comfort of our upstairs nursery anytime during our worship service or whenever needed.
Sprouts Class: Babies -Age 2
God loves me.
We invite families to join or drop off their babies and children up to age 2 in our Sprouts class before or after corporate worship. This is a safe and loving environment where adult helpers make meaningful connections with children, sharing with them the love of Jesus through song and play.
Godly Play: Ages 2.5-5
God invites me to know him and experience him in worship.
We welcome our preschoolers to worship and experience God by hearing his word, reenacting his story, singing praise songs, and creating crafts in response.
Elementary Class: Grades Kindergarten-5th Grade
God is trustworthy and created me uniquely to be a special part of his community.
Children in elementary school are energetic learners, beginning to discover how God has created each of us uniquely for his glory. We desire that they would begin connecting the truths of God with their everyday decisions and relationships.
