About Blakemore’s Children’s Ministry
Blakemore has a dynamic children’s ministry dedicated to the faith formation and spiritual development of children aged 0-12. We offer a regular Sunday School, 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. Currently, we are working on the musical Old Testament Fast Forward, to be performed on Sunday, December 15 during worship. Wednesday evenings also involve intergenerational experiences where children have the opportunity to engage in faith formation with the whole church family.
There are seasonal events such as a Summer Art Camp called “stART from Scratch,” a Fall Family Retreat, Parents Night Out Christmas Party, Easter Extravaganza, and Missional Events. During worship, we offer opportunities geared toward children: A Children’s Message in which Scripture and liturgy is explained in a child-friendly way, we encourage them to assist those serving in various roles on Sunday morning, and they serve as acolytes.
