Children's Ministry

Believing in the importance of nurturing a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and God’s people, Idlewild will, with God’s help, guide children to know, love, and serve the Lord by providing a solid foundation of Biblical understanding with opportunities to apply spiritual truths at home, school, and play.


Sunday School for Children

Children of all ages will engage in formative and experiential learning as they are immersed in God’s Story in Sunday School. Starting at 9:40am each Sunday, children will hear the stories of scripture, engage in wonder and spiritual practices, and learn ways of peace. Please sign in each child each Sunday at the Nursery Sign In Station (Babies- Toddler/Two’s) or the Children’s Sign In Station (Pre-K/Three’s- Grade 5) located on Level One of the Jones Building Hallway: sign in your child on the sign in sheet for their class, fill out a sticker name tag, place on child, and retain the stub/claim portion of the sticker to return to pick up your child at 10:40am.
