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, all children are encouraged to be present for worship. A nursery attendant is available to care for your child in our nursery, but we invite you to try our prayground first. At the front of the sanctuary on the organ side – where you can watch the organist play with his hands and feet, – a small table and chairs are set up with a variety of quiet activities like books, blocks, and coloring options to choose from. Noise is expected, and parents should relax and remember that Madison Square committed to having young children and their loved ones up front during worship.

The Children’s Moment, when children are invited forward to sit on the steps with Pastor Bart.
