Children, Youth, & Families (CYF)


He restores my soul. - Psalm 23:3

We are on a summer schedule in CYF. Child care is provided every Sunday from 9:30am – 2:30pm:
Ages newborn – 23 months: 1 West 29th Street, 2nd floor nursery
Ages 2 and older: 276 5th Avenue, room 303

CYF resumes on September 8. In the meantime, this webpage describes our program -- and we always welcome a chance to personally connect with you! For questions, contact Rev. Brittany Juliette Hanlin or Jessica Scovel, Director of Children's Ministry.

Welcome to our Children, Youth and Families (CYF) Ministry webpage. We’re glad you’re here. We invite you to catch your breath and spend a few moments with us.

We understand the day-to-day challenges for our families. Yes, everyone is thankful for their blessings! At the same time, schedules are packed, school demands have increased, opportunities for true connection are scarce, and how do we even begin quieting our thoughts?

With these challenges in mind, we’ve crafted a different Children’s Ministry – a ministry that honors the whole child. Our program focuses on children’s innate spirituality, connection to others and loving relationship with God through:

  • Developmentally-based curriculum
  • Music education and choral singing
  • Worship
  • Opportunities for helping others
  • Creative expression
  • Mindfulness

Sunday Program, 10:00am – 12:30pm, with child care provided until 4:00pm. Free of charge and open to all families.

Please reach out with your questions to Rev. Brittany Juliette Hanlin or Jessica Scovel, Director of Children's Ministry, or better yet, why not visit on a Sunday morning?

We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Children’s Music Opportunities

Our youth learn to communicate God’s message through song and worship services, church functions and special events through our Church School Choir program.

Designed to develop, from a very early age, the music skills and sense of spirituality that are an integral part of Christian choral singing. We have a Cherub Choir and a Children’s Choir. Learn more about these opportunities here.
