Messiah Kids KID Street
At Messiah, we love walking with children on their journeys to follow Jesus. We strive to reach the lives of children through a variety of engaging activities, partnering with families to nurture children’s faith.
KID Street Sunday School
Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30 am
KID Street Sunday School meets during the 8:30 and 10:30 am worship services on Sunday mornings for children in pre-K (ages 3-5) through 5th grade. Children come together to learn about God’s amazing love found in the Bible. They take part in engaging activities to help connect God’s story to their lives.
Children begin in the worship service and are dismissed together mid-service, led by Sunday School teachers to their classrooms. Preschoolers can go directly to class before the service or when the other children are dismissed. Parents should pick up their children in their classrooms on the lower level following the worship service.
If your family prefers to worship together, infants, toddlers, children, and youth are always welcome to remain in the sanctuary.
Infants & Toddlers
Nursery during Sunday Worship Services and Wednesday Night Programming
Infant and toddler care (birth through age 3) is available on Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30 am. On Wednesday nights, the nursery may be available, with at least 2 days advanced notice – contact Kari Stern, Director of Children and Family Ministry.
Please remember to pack the necessary items that will help your child feel happy and comfortable during his/her stay with us (diapers, change of clothes, bottle or snack, blanket, special toy, etc.). Also, please give clear instructions to our caregivers so that they can best care for your baby’s needs.
Messiah Church strives to make all children feel welcome. If you have little ones with you who are not ready to visit our nursery or Sunday School rooms, please know they are always welcome in the worship services. “Busy Bags” filled with paper, crayons and a few other fun items are available at the back of the sanctuary.
KID Street Wednesday Nights
Wednesdays at 6:30-8 pm
Children in pre-K (ages 3-5) through 5th grade can join us Wednesday nights during the school year for dinner (usually pizza or sub sandwiches), a faith lesson, playtime, music, art, and service projects. KID Street Wednesday Nights begin in the KID Street Headquarters (the Sunday School room in the lower level) at 6:30 pm.

Summer Vacation Bible Camp
A Full Week of Summer Fun – June 12-16, 2023
Join us June 12-16 at Stellar Vacation Bible Camp for music, art, games, science, and more. Kids preschool-5th grade will be launched on a cosmic quest where they’ll have a blast shining Jesus’ light to the world! “Stellar” rockets kids on an out-of-this-world adventure that’s light years – or five mornings (9 am-12 pm) – of faith-building fun. Kids have the option of staying all day too, for even more adventures (optional afternoon care space is limited). All are welcome!
Messiah Kids Serving Opportunities
If you like to have fun, laugh, and get children excited about following Jesus, then Messiah Kids is for you. We have lots of opportunities for servant leaders, whether you have an hour to help or want to commit to being with kids every week. We even have a few opportunities to serve behind-the-scenes that will bless the lives of children.
Ministry opportunities include KID Street Sunday School teachers and substitutes, KID Street Wednesday Night leaders, Summer Vacation Bible Camp, special holiday activities, and parent support and education opportunities.
We love partnering with families to nurture young faith. We also realize that sometimes families are looking for more parenting resources. We’ve collected a few of our favorites to share with you:
