Our children’s department has activities and classes for children
from birth to 5th grade.
We love your children and are happy to have them as part of our family of faith. During Sunday school, we provide two well-stocked nurseries. Our Mothers’ Room/Nursery for infants – age 2 is located at the 2nd floor, south side landing. The nursery for children 3-5 is located on the 2nd floor, north side landing.
HeartShaper Curriculum – Sunday School
Located on the 2nd floor, north side landing, Megan and Molly Saltsgiver lead a preschool class using the HeartShaper Curriculum. With this curriculum, children learn the basics about how God loves them, God made them, and God is their friend.
Located on the 3rd floor, classes are broken down into two age groups – Kindergarten – 2nd Grade, 3rd – 5th Grade. Before leaving 5th grade, we want the children to understand 3 basic truths:
- FAITH: I can trust God no matter what.
- WISDOM: I need to make the wise choice.
- FRIENDSHIP: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Once a month, during the sermon portion of worship, children age 6 – 5th grade are welcome to join us on the 3rd floor for their own special worship service.
Pre-School and grade school children are invited to our Kid’s Club children’s program each Wednesday evening. Through crafts, games, and various educations activities, our children make a joyful noise as we gather to build friendships, learn about God, and strengthen our faith.
Vacation Bible School
In cooperation with St. Matthew Lutheran Church and the Martinsburg Church of God, Memorial provides VBS to a large number of member and non-member children. We believe that along with learning important lessons about faith, our children also learn an important lesson about service and working with other churches.
