Children

Parents trust the church to teach their precious ones God’s word and to keep them safe.


At Washington Street, children are guided to grow in their faith and become genuine followers of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to partner with families for the spiritual formation of their children.

Sunday School 

Preschoolers Sunday School (2-3 years) meets at 9:45 on Sunday mornings on the first floor of the Education Building. From 8:50 a.m. – 12:10 p.m. on Sundays, nursery is provided in the Child Development Center for infants and children up to 2 years old.

Children’s Sunday School (4 years-6th grade) meets at 9:45 on Sunday mornings on the second floor of the Education Building. A Children’s Sermon is delivered during the 11:00 a.m. service every Sunday.

 


Girl Scouts

Washington Street is proudly home to an active Girl Scouts troop that meets in the Girl Scouts Room on the third floor of the Education Building. Most girls join for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities — the core qualities of Girl Scouting. Washington Street Girl Scouts live by the Girl Scout Promise: On my honor, I will try:
 to serve God and my country,
 to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law.

 


Vacation Bible School

In years past, we’ve had approximately 100 children attend our Vacation Bible School, where children have fun in a Christian environment.

 


Music Mania Day Camp

Music Mania Day Camp started a few years ago, and has become a highlight of our summer! Led by our Director of Music, Angela Powers, and other adult volunteers, children and youth get to learn how to play different instruments, sing new songs, and perform for their family and friends at the end of the week. Most importantly, they are taught and encouraged to make a joyful noise in God’s name!
