Children's Ministry Overview

Crestwood's Children's Ministry is called and dedicated to love, support, teach, pray for and model Christ's love to all children. We strive to provide an environment that:

  • develops a working knowledge of the Bible
  • gives children a strong foundation in Scripture through loving and nurturing teachers, committed to excellence
  • provides worship and prayer opportunities
  • develops a strong foundation for building a "servant heart" and to provide opportunities to love and serve others
  • provides support and opportunities for families to fulfill God’s purpose for their children as a member of God’s family
