About Blakemore’s Children’s Ministry
Blakemore has a dynamic and growing ministry dedicated to the faith formation and spiritual development of children aged 0-12. We offer a regular Sunday School, divided by age and taught by church members, as well as a Confirmation class for 5th and 6th graders taught every other year.
We also have Wednesday evening programs for children: “Something More” is a fun, energetic worship experience for kids in 1st – 6th grades. “Something More” meets in the Fellowship Hall from 6:30 to 7:30 every Wednesday to explore “Something More” about how kids can live and worship as Christians through games, music, and laughter. “Worship KidStyle” is a dynamic new ministry for preschoolers led by caring, loving adults.
There are also seasonal events such as a Summer Art Camp, Lock-in, Wild Things Party, Easter Egg Hunt, and Mission Events. During worship, we offer opportunities geared toward children: a Children’s Message in which Scripture is explained in a child-friendly way; Children’s Worship Bulletins that offer engaging work on the day’s Scriptural topic, and Wonder Worship for children ages 3-6.
