Our Children and Family Ministries nurture the gathering of families to celebrate God's love and grace. Children are a vibrant component of our congregation and we seek to raise them up in the way they should go, knowing they are loved and created in God's image. Children and families engage in Faith, Formation, and Fruitfulness through various experiences within our Children's Ministry. To learn more about our Children's Ministry contact Brittany Mullinex or Amy Gaertner, our Interim Children's Ministry Coordinators.

Weekly Schedule

Kaleidoscope Kids! - During our 8:30 worship gathering, we also host our children (2nd grade and under) for a time of children's worship called Kaleidoscope. Children are dismissed from the Upper Room with our ministry leaders for song, prayer, scripture … and the occasional snack.

Children's Formation Hour - Amy Gaertner and Christi Barker will lead our youngest Chestnut Grovians through age-specific times of reading, sharing, praying, and playing together using our Dig In curriculum.  

Mission Friends & Sunday Night Formation - our children (3 years old – 5th grade) will explore how their growing faith connects with their hands and feet with Brittany Mullinex as they look for ways to bring love into the world! On October 1st, our Christmas Play practice, led by Christi Barker & Mimi Tornrose, begins for first to fifth graders.
