OVERVIEW OF CHILDREN & FAMILY MINISTRIES AND PROGRAMS
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Children have been seen as a vital part of Village Church since its beginning. Every effort is made to include children in planning for our church family. It is our intention to help children grow in the knowledge of the goodness of God’s love, as expressed in the person of Jesus Christ until the time that they claim the faith as their own.
We offer a child-loving and Christ-centered environment with excellence, nurture and delight. Child care is available for most programs and ministries with advance registration.
