Our Nursery (for children 0 to 3 years old) Sundays, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Our nursery is located just off the sanctuary to meet the needs of the littlest among us (and their parents, families and faith community). Everyone is welcome in worship and church events, but if your little one needs some TLC in a safe and welcoming place, we have one ready. It is staffed by a professional nursery worker, and a trained member of our congregation. Check it out!
Children’s Sunday School
A multi-age children’s Sunday School Class meets 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Room 2. Children ages four and up are invited to participate in a variety of activities that help them learn stories of the Bible and prepare them to be followers of Christ in today’s world.
Children’s Worship (from ages 4 through 3rd grade) – Sundays during Worship. Everyone is welcome in worship, no matter how young, old or in-between. Midway Hills makes special effort to reach children, through our Children’s Moment in worship to our children’s space in the back of the sanctuary to Children’s Worship, where two leaders walk through stories, questions and the basics of the faith with children during morning worship.
Walk of Faith (Fourth and Fifth Grade) – Formed as needed. Fourth and fifth graders are not quite youth, and they’re definitely not children. They put the ‘tween’ into in-between, and it is at this point in their incredible lives that we offer a two year class and youth group meant to help sort out bigger questions, issues and hopes in the faith, while building community and hearts for service.
Family Friendly Worship
We practice “family friendly worship.” If you have a baby, our nursery is just a few steps away from our sanctuary doors, so you can step out and check on your child discretely during the service. We also have a family zone set up in the back of the sanctuary, perfect for you and your restless tykes if you’d prefer to stay in worship. We have small tables and chairs, and art supplies, books and other quiet activities to keep tiny hands occupied. We also have rocking chairs set up for mamas, papas and grandparents who need to rock a little one.
Sundays and More (for grades 6-12/Youth) – The Youth of Midway Hills are not just the future of the church, they are the church. We love and support them (and they, us) by creating purposeful community, developing faith that is active in outreach and mission, and in supporting growth and participation in all that God has called us to do.
Youth Sunday School – We meet Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. – 10:20 a.m. in Room 3, Education Hall.
Youth Group Meetings & Gatherings listed on our calendar.
