Children’s Ministry

Whether you are visiting for the first time, drop in from time to time, or call Madison Square your church home, you and your children are welcome in our diverse and inclusive fellowship. We are dedicated to fostering an environment of Christian faith formation that welcomes all children as uniquely gifted of God, honors their questions and encourages their growth as whole persons. We hope to see you often!

Worship with Children

At Madison Square, we encourage parents to sit with their children through the opening liturgy and hymn. Young children will enjoy the worship bags and picture books that are available in the back of the church.

The Children’s Moment, when children are invited forward to sit on the steps with Pastor Bart, Ms. Susan or another children’s leader, is designed especially for them.

Following the Children’s Moment, children through the 3rd Grade are invited to Children’s Church, an informal time of story, prayer and activities. The children return to the sanctuary for the closing hymn and for communion, the first Sunday of each month.

Older children and Youth are encouraged to remain in worship the full hour. Worship is a multisensory, multiple intelligence environment that definitely improves with practice!
