Catalyst Kids!

We are so excited to announce Backyard Club 2024: Set Sail! We will be meeting at Lakewood Hills Park for an exciting week of learning about God, playing games, making crafts, fun music and more. Last year we had almost 60 kids and student helpers between both Catalyst locations.

Friends are welcome!

Sunday Mornings

Children are welcome in our church services. We have quiet toys available and welcome the extra noise of little ones.

We also have Nursery and Children's Ministry for kids to learn about God with their peers and caring adults on Sundays during service. It's our standard to provide a safe, welcoming environment for kids to learn about God on Sunday mornings. All of our volunteers have been through a volunteer safety process and are equipped with fun and engaging lessons.

Nursery | Ages 0-5
Our nursery is located in the Kids Stuff area on the second floor of the YMCA. This area is designed for three stages; babies, toddlers and preschoolers with specific furniture and toys for each stage. Your child will experience music, prayer, a Bible story and plenty of playtime in this great space. The nursery is open from 9:45am-11:00am. New families will be asked to complete a short form at check-in.

School Age | Grades K-5
Our school-age program is located directly across the hall from our worship space in The Commons. We dismiss kids mid-way through the service to attend this 30 minute program. Kids return to service before church is over. We value kids being a part of worship with the larger congregation. No registration is needed for Catalyst Kids at this point, but we ask you fill out a Connect Card during service if you are new. There are occasional services that school-age kids remain in the service the entire hour.

Special Needs
We love to include all children. Let us know if there is anything we can do to prepare in advance to make your child's experience great.

We are looking for people that love Jesus and love kids! Let us know if you'd like to serve in the nursery or Catalyst Kids. Leaders can teach lessons or assist. Our volunteer process includes an application, background check and interview/tour. We'd love meet you!

Parents Passing on Faith

Our greatest privilege as parents is to pass on faith to the next generation. The church may only have 100 hours a year with your kids. A parent has 3,000 hours a year spending time with their child. The best way for kids to catch faith is through parents and other caring adults modeling it to them. Our greatest goal in Children's Ministry to provide parents encouragement and resources to pass on faith.

Stop by the Welcome Table on Sunday mornings to access our free monthly resources for families. These resources are simple and creative ideas to talk about faith as a family.
