“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:37

Faithful Faith Formation

We believe children are a vital part of our worship service. Children may choose to serve as ushers, acolytes and/or bell ringers if desired. A special time is dedicated to children during the 11:00 worship service. After the children’s minutes, they have the option of leaving the Sanctuary to attend Children’s Church (Kid’s J.A.M. “Jesus and Me”).  

Children and their families have access to the following ministries –


Vanderburg has a well equipped nursery that is staffed by dedicated volunteers. Parents have the option to sign their infants and toddlers [up to preschool age] in for care during the 11:00 service. 

At KIDS J.A.M. …”Jesus and Me” children have the opportunity to explore God’s Word and Message through bible stories, crafts, games and sometimes a light snack. The volunteers are passionate about sharing the love of God with children and we keep the lessons age appropriate. 

We believe that everyone should be afforded the opportunity to study God’s Word. Education classes are offered for ages 2 and up, between our two worship services. (8:45 and 11:00 am) Children may be dropped in the Sanctuary at 9:45 for opening assembly. Sunday School Teachers will take care of them until second bell at 10:45 at which time you may collect your child at their Sunday School class.

An Annual Vacation Bible School (VBS) is hosted for children ages three and up during the Summer. All children are invited and encouraged to bring their friends. Kids learn valuable scripture lessons, meet new friends and have awesome experiences while having fun. 


Vanderburg supports development of children on many levels. Handbells, music programs and seasonal programs and activities are part of what we offer.


CHECK BACK IN regularly to see what may be in store for your child at Vanderburg.
