Currently, our Worship Service and Sunday School are taking place via livestream. Our afternoon service takes place in person at Redeemer Church in Urbana. Our regular meeting location is at the University YMCA in Champaign.
Kids in Worship
Children’s nursery is available for children ages 0-4. Please feel welcome to bring your little ones to play and learn about Jesus while you enjoy the main worship service.
Kids of all ages are welcome to join us in our weekly service. Kids learn to participate by watching their parents and others around them sing and read and listen. In this way kids learn to own Christian faith and practice from a young age. Yet we know that all kids are in different places. Some will be able to sing along and read along with us. Others will be able to sit quietly, listen, and watch. Some will wiggle in their seats the entire time. Were okay with that. Kids make noise, and were okay with that, too. (In fact, it normally makes our pastor smile when he hears babies cry during the service.) For some parents, it will seem like a battle week after week. We understand that. We know this is a big commitment for parents–and not necessarily an easy one–so we want to help in any way we can. For some kids, it is helpful to have some paper and crayons to color as they listen, and we have small bags available for use during the service with paper, crayons, and stickers to help keep restless little ones busy. We also have childrens Bibles available for use during the service on the back table.
