Children

As families come to worship at Church of the Incarnation, we want them to feel welcomed and loved. The Children & Family Ministry department strives to serve our church family by providing opportunities for Christian growth, service, and fellowship through high quality programs and special events as well as opportunities for sharing faith at home. Together, we partner in the spiritual formation of your children.

Sunday School starts at 10:20 am sandwiched by our 9 am and 11:15 am services. We have a brief time of fellowship before Sunday school for all ages. We encourage you to join us for a cup of coffee in the hallway, drop your kids off at a class for their age, and then sit in on any adult class.

We hope that your family will Connect, Grow, and Serve with us at Incarnation!

Nursery

  • Birth to age 5
  • (Education Building, 1st floor)

The nursery is open for children (birth through 5 years old) from 8:45 am to 12:45 pm and 4:45 to 6:45 pm for parents participating in church programs on campus. Children of all ages are welcome in all worship services.

Children's Chapel

  • Ages 3 through 1st Grade
    Sundays: 9 am and 11:15 am in Room 102 (Education Building, 1st floor)

Family worship is very important at Church of the Incarnation, but we realize that our youngest members may have a difficult time sitting through an entire service. In Children’s Chapel, children will:

  • Hear the Gospel story in child-friendly language
  • Engage in worship through music
  • Learn the Lord’s Prayer

Children are dropped off right before the service at the Children’s Chapel classroom, located downstairs in the Education building, Room 102, on the west side of the Great Hall. At the appropriate time they will be led into the traditional & contemporary services so that you may worship together as a family during the celebration of Holy Communion. Parents may also choose to let their 3 to 5 year olds stay in the nursery during Communion by indicating at check-in.
