The Kids & Families Ministry at Mountainside embraces the Godly Play approach to engage with children. Through this method, children learn the art of using Christian language - parables, sacred story, silence, and liturgical action - deepening their awareness of God’s presence in their lives. Guided by these convictions, we view kids as full participants in the church body, recognizing the shared responsibility for their discipleship, and walk alongside them in their spiritual journey. We also prioritize supporting parents and primary caregivers, creating spaces of worship and wonder where families can encounter the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer through God’s story and response.
