Children & Youth Ministries
Providence welcomes all ages into our family!
Below, we’ve outlined lots of opportunities to get your littles involved at Providence CRC. From the nursery to graduation, you’ll find something for every age.
Nursery is provided during the morning service as well as many other events. 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.
During the 9:30am Sunday Worship Service, children age 2 meet in a classroom for the whole regular worship service, for a small Bible lesson and craft time. (Take Two meets September – May.)
During the 9:30am Sunday Worship Service, children ages 3 years to Pre-K meet in a classroom, after the children’s sermon in the regular worship service, for a small Bible lesson and craft time. (Little Lambs meets September – May.)
During the 9:30am Sunday Worship Service, children of Kindergarten age meet after the children’s sermon in the regular worship service for a small Bible lesson.
This helps prepare our children for worship in church when they are older. (Children’s Worship meets September – May.)
A fun and engaging program for children (1st – 5th grade) that meets on Sunday mornings from 11-11:45 am. The time includes singing, a Bible lesson and plenty of laughter. (Sunday School meets September – April.)
Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior (GEMS)

This group consists of boys in first grade through eighth grade and meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday nights of the month (September-May). The boys enjoy a meal with their families at church and then gather in the Cadet room – a special place in the church building for this ministry.
Catechism classes of 6th grade through 12th grade students meet weekly after the Sunday morning service 11:00 am – 12:00 pm, September through May.
YBC’s (Young Believers in Christ)
YBC’s is for youth ages 6th-8th grade. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings of every month.
High School Youth Group
4:12 Youth is for all high school students and their friends. Games, a shared meal, and a relevant lesson are part of every large group. We meet on the second and fourth Sundays from 4-6 pm in the youth loft (September- April).
Contact Amber Vander Vennen for more information.
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.

Happy Mother’s Day!
‘Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.’
I Corinthians 13:4-7
Welcome to Providence Christian Reformed Church! Reflect & pray in the quietness of this sanctuary. Let the Spirit flow over you, preparing you to meet the Lord in the acts of worship. In the stillness, let God speak to your heart.
