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, 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. Elementary aged children are welcomed to participate in a children’s choir from 6:00-6:30. Wednesday evenings also involve intergenerational experiences where children have the opportunity to engaged in faith formation with the whole church family.
There are seasonal events such as a Summer Art Camp called “stART from Scratch,” a Fall Festival, 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, Children’s Worship Bulletins that offer engaging work on the day’s Scriptural topic, and Wonder Worship for children ages 3-6.
