Children & Youth
At Three Streams Church, children are always welcome in our worship to participate with their families, but childcare is offered for kids 4 and under in our equipped and staffed nursery Sunday mornings from 9:30 AM – 12:15 PM. Children will have the opportunity to play, hear bible stories, and participate in activities.
PRE-K CHILDREN’S CHURCH: Beginning September 2023, Children’s Church for Pre-K children will be offered during the Eucharist on Sunday mornings. Children will be taught Bible stories, songs, theology, and liturgy.
CHILDREN’S CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: After Eucharist, Children ages K-4th grade will enjoy biblically based lessons and activities by our team of teachers. If you’d like to learn more about what’s available on Sunday mornings or if you have any questions about children at Three Streams, please contact our Assistant Rector, Father Adam Wade, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIDDLERS MINISTRY: Our middle-school ministry (5th-8th grade) at Three Streams on Sunday mornings builds upon our Children’s ministry where students concentrate on the biblical narrative (creation-consummation), the Gospel, and Christian mission.
HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH: At Three Streams our aim is to nurture 9th-12th grade students in the historical faith of the Church so that they may grow up to become oaks of righteousness. As a community, we take the baptismal covenant seriously, and we seek to truly be a family on mission invested in the development of our high-school students. Father Loren Raiford and others lead our high-school ministry on Sunday mornings.
YOUTH ACOLYTES & READERS: Training acolytes to serve in worship as part of the altar party is a great way to foster youth participation in worship. Additionally, we encourage our youth to serve in corporate worship by reading the Scripture lessons from the lectern.
ARCHDEACONRY YOUTH FELLOWSHIP & MISSION EVENTS: These events are great opportunities for youth to be challenged and grow in their discipleship to Jesus Christ.
