We believe children have the greatest potential to know and grow with God when they have three influences properly balanced in their lives. We will equip parents to disciple their kids at home and to live on mission together. We also believe that kids need community with other kids and adults as they grow in Christ. Our Valley Avon campus offers a variety of midweek programs (GEMS, BLAST! etc.) that Valley Simsbury kids can participate in. We will also offer Kids Breakout Sessions – a custom fit environment for Valley Simsbury kids.

Mill Pond | Saturdays at 5 p.m.

Kids and adults participate together in all aspects of this gathering, so we do not offer nursery care or Kids Breakout Sessions. If needed, there is a cry room available adjacent to the missional community gathering space.

Canton Community Center | Sundays at 4:30 p.m.

All children are welcome to join the first 30 minutes of our worship gathering to sing and celebrate. Children 6 months to preschool age are available to go to their classrooms as early as 10 minutes prior to the beginning of our worship gathering.

Following our worship gathering, kids will be dismissed to partake in our Kids Breakout Sessions, which are a custom fit environment where they will engage with their peers in an age-appropriate lesson, craft, and games. These environments are split into the following age groups:

Base Camp: Babies – Preschool

Summit: Kindergarten – Grade 2

Peak: Grades 3-6

All our Children’s Ministry volunteer leaders are 18 and older, have completed our screening process and background check, and are verified KidSafe.
