We love kids! They are the lifeblood of Faith Church. We love to partner with parents to raise children and youth that love Jesus and each other. Each level of our ministry provides age-appropriate teaching and activities to help our kids grow in their faith as followers of Jesus.
Our nurseries are filled with more and more young children that have fun during the church service. We offer two nursery options, including an Infant Room (up to age 1) and a Toddler Room (ages 1-3). All nursery volunteers are trained in safe practices and have been run through multiple background checks. Parents are paged via text message for diaper changes and other challenges. We also provide space for nursing mothers in a private space in the back of the sanctuary to enable mothers to stay somewhat engaged in the church service.
Children and Worship
Worship Center allows children ages 3–1st grade to have an age-appropriate worship experience too! After the opening singing, children are dismissed to worship center or may stay with their parents in worship. Worship center greeters will help you find the room that fits your child the best (separate rooms for children age 3-4 or age 5-6).
We recognize the important role Faith Church plays in educating our children and youth about God’s Word. Sunday School classes are offered immediately following the morning service. Preschool – 5th grade classes meet in the basement space with the primary goal being to learn the stories in the Bible and what they mean for our lives. Our 6th-12th grade classes meet across the parking lot in “The Outlet” building for topical Biblical or theological sessions taught by various adults from the congregation.
GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is all about girls! (2nd–5th Grade). Girls are active, imaginative, and unique. They are passionate! And GEMS offers them the perfect place to learn and grow as they discover who God created them to be. Our mission is to bring girls everywhere into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ alongside a community of women mentors and peers who genuinely care about them.
Cadets is all about boys, from 2nd grade through 6th grade. Luke 2:42 states that "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." The goal of Cadets is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social) through meaningful relationships with Christian men who mentor the boys through having lots of fun, creativity, competition, and fellowship.
Middle School Ministries (MSM)
Middle school students face unique challenges as they begin forming important beliefs and relationships that will give direction to the rest of their lives. MSM is Faith's youth group specifically for girls and boys in grades 6-8, which meets three Wednesdays a month from 6:15-7:45pm for a mix of discussions, games, and outings around Holland.
High School Youth Group
Youth group is for all High School students (grades 9 - 12). Our students meet to build community, seek Christ, and have a lot of fun. We meet twice a month on Sunday nights from 5:00 - 7:00pm. We also gather every other Wednesday morning before school at The Windmill downtown Holland for a good breakfast and a chance to connect mid-week. Additionally, our high school students love to get away together at retreats and service & learning trips.
