Ministries at Redeemer for Young Children
All children ages 4 and up are invited to join us for Sunday school in the upstairs classrooms after the children’s sermon. Here at Redeemer, we believe that faith is entwined with curiosity. We want our youngest members to learn about and experience God’s love by doing what kids do best - playing and asking questions! This is why our children’s ministry team has incorporated Godly Play, a Montessori-based method of teaching, into our Sunday school curriculum. Young people listen and engage with sacred stories presented by volunteer storytellers, and then are asked to wonder about the meaning of the story in their lives and experiences. The children are also invited frequently to participate in collaborative art projects to process what they have learned and make beautiful art to be displayed around the sanctuary. If you are interested in assisting with Sunday school or becoming a storyteller, please contact Helen Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-374-4139.
Nursery is Redeemer’s Sunday ministry for children ages 6 months to 4 years old. Following the children's sermon portion of the worship service, parents may exit the sanctuary into the hallway in the front of the sanctuary (near the altar) and leave their children with volunteers. There the children are allowed to play, listen to Bible stories, color biblical coloring pages and just receive love and attention from members of the congregation until the passing of the peace begins. If you would like your child/children to attend nursery, you can simply fill out a registration form, which you can get from Kristi Murray (612-812-6524 or email@example.com) prior to nursery time or from a nursery ministry volunteer as you bring your child/children to nursery.
We have several faithful volunteers from previous years returning to help again, but I would love to add your name to the list of those who get to provide this important ministry for our youngest Redeemer family members. If you would like to volunteer, contact Angela Bonfiglio (612-374-4139 ex. 23 or firstname.lastname@example.org) who can help you get the necessary background check completed.
