Children’s Ministries

At Ivanrest Church, each child will discover and apply these steps in their faith walk:

1. Understanding and feeling God’s love. This will be accomplished through hearing Bible stories, age appropriate memory work and connecting Truth to their lives.

2. Worship is pleasing to God. This will be accomplished through singing Worship songs and doing active rhymes.

3. Showing God’s love.  This will be accomplished through making crafts together and learning how to act kindly during organized games.

Our ​kid’s ministry​ provides an exciting experience for infants, toddlers and preschoolers to learn about Jesus while you worship. We have taken great care to ensure the safety of your child and are able to notify you during the worship service if your child needs you.
