Kirkwood offers a variety of opportunities for children, year-round – come join the fun!
 
PRE-WORSHIP (10:00 - 10:45) Godly Play Sunday School
Godly Play Sunday School for ages 3 through 12 is held on Sunday mornings before worship from 10:00 - 10:45 am in the classroom next to the conference room (formerly a nursery). We welcome all of Kirkwood's children to join us as we make meaning through story, wonder and play.
 
WORSHIP:
Children 1st grade and up are encouraged to participate in the service through passing out bulletins, aiding in the collection of the offering and serving as an Acolyte.  In the Acolyte Ministry our young people serve as active leaders in our worship service.  Acolytes perform a very important function in the church by bringing the light of God into the sanctuary at the beginning of the worship service and carrying the light of God out into the world at the end of the services.  The candles the acolytes light for the service remind worshippers that God is with us. 
 
CONFIRMATION:
The Christian Education team offers any child in 6th grade or higher an opportunity to participate in confirmation class. Confirmation is a learning opportunity and important step in one’s faith journey where a small group of students are exposed to some of the key teachings of the Christian Faith, the history of the universal church and our local church, the life and work of Jesus, and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Confirmation class helps young people explore their faith journey and articulate their faith in Christ Jesus.
