Programs Designed with Kids and Families in Mind
The mission and vision of St Stephen’s Kids is to empower young children and their families to know and follow the way of Jesus in their daily lives. We are an inter-generational learning community that helps kids explore and experience belonging, service with others, and Jesus’ way of love, in order to grow in faith and bring these gifts to the world in the power of God’s Spirit.
- Creative Bible Teaching. We strive to bring the stories of the Bible to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged.
- Relationships. We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group.
- Age-Appropriateness. Our lesson materials are created in a way your child will understand.
- Fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, and singing.
We are excited to share our 2018/19 Kid’s Programs with you! Registration is open now >> Register online

Volunteers are the heart of our Children’s Ministries. There are MANY opportunities in our programs for all types of volunteers. We need administrative assistance, caring adults to work in our nursery and in all programs, as well as adults to help with special events throughout the year. There’s an opportunity for YOU no matter what day of the week or how frequently you are available.
The BEST WAY to get connected to the right ministry for you is to reach out to Missy Greene. She will help you find a place where you can share your gifts with the kids of our parish.
