Children & Youth Ministries
Providence welcomes all ages into our family!
Below, we’ve outlined lots of opportunities to get your children involved at Providence CRC. From the nursery to graduation, you’ll find something for every age.
Nursery is provided during the morning service for kids ages 0-2. The nursery is staffed by church volunteers who have signed an Abuse Prevention form. This ministry helps parents participate in the church service while knowing their children are in good hands. The nursery is available year round.
Take Two, Little Lambs, Children’s Worship, Kingdom Kids
During the Sunday Worship Service, children ages 2-5 meet in age-appropriate classrooms for a small Bible lesson and craft time after the Children’s Message with the pastor. These programs meet September–May. Kingdom Kids are in a slightly more traditional classroom setting to help them feel ready for Sunday School next year.
Here’s a list of the dates we’ll meet during in 2022-2023. We hope your kids can join us!
Sunday School & Catechism
Sunday School & Catechism meet on Sundays from 11 am-noon (September-March). For kids 1st-5th grade, Sunday School is a fun & engaging program hour includes biweekly singing, a Bible lesson, and plenty of laughter. Catechism is for youth in 6th-12th grade. For this 2022-2023 we are learning more about apologetics. Connect with Jen Sterk if you’re seeking more information!
All grades 2nd & up have the opportunity to memorize Scripture & earn trophies for their hard work!

Retreats & Events
A lot of fun is to be had in this group! We typically kick off our year in August or September with a weekend away, and a SpringHill winter retreat has also become a favorite. In addition to these larger events, we have monthly activities (typically on a Saturday) that may be a seasonal pastime, a service project, or some other amusement.
