Children's Ministries

Let the Children Come...

Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs. —Matthew 19:14

Our children’s ministry seeks to allow children to discover a joyful and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are committed to standing beside and supporting parents in laying a spiritual foundation for their children. Our Children's Ministries include:

• Children’s Message: We believe it is important to involve children in worship at an early age. So we have a special part of our worship service just for them. They are invited to come forward for a children’s sermon that helps them understand just how much Jesus loves them.

• Nursery Care: Our Nursery is a place of warmth and joy for your little ones, infants through kindergarten. Our nursery attendants and volunteers provide loving care that shares the spirit of Jesus Christ with each child we touch.

• Sunday School: Every Sunday our children come together for an hour of Sunday School beginning at 10:45. We offer a hands-on curriculum because we believe that that is the way children learn. All that we do is Christ-centered, fun, and full of life. Our teachers are dedicated to help children begin and grow their faith in Jesus Christ.

• Vacation Bible School: For one week every July, we bring together not only our own kids, but many from the community, both churched and unchurched. There are five evenings of fun, including music, crafts, snacks, recreation, and — most importantly — learning the lessons of the Gospel.

Bring the kids to church each week and help them learn of the love of Jesus Christ.

Safe Sanctuaries

God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from abuse. St. Paul’s affirms the policy that our churches should be “safe sanctuaries,” protecting children, youth and other vulnerable persons from all types of abuse. We are committed to be a community of faith where children and youth grow safe and spiritually strong.

Our Annual Conference has resolved that every church in New Jersey have a Safe Sanctuaries policy and be compliant with its regulations. St. Paul's has a policy in place, and all our teachers and leaders for children and youth have passed background checks.

Your children will be safe with us, safe in body and spirit, and they'll learn about God's love through our people.
