GENEVA KIDS & FAMILIES
SMALL BUT MIGHTY
Geneva kids are part of a bigger family of Christ where they are loved, supported and mentored, not only by teachers and pastors, but by other members of the Geneva's multi generational community. Geneva isn't the biggest program in the area, but In today's world of mega everything, it's this small town atmosphere that makes us unique.
A Message From Pastor Ryan
We love telling and retelling the sacred stories of Scripture for our young ones with as many intergenerational relationships as possible. We love seeing how God’s Word settles down deep in their hearts when we are faithful to that calling. We also love showing them that they are loved by their church.
We’ve partnered with the curriculum experts at Orange Kids to most effectively tell the story of a God who loves us, saves us, and calls us to love one another. But, the most important partner we have in teaching your child about Jesus is you! Come join us!
My door is always open. Feel free to call or email me. I would love to get to know your family and answer any questions you may have.
Our Leadership Team
Birth through age 3
Childcare is available for children under 3 years old during worship services and most church wide fellowship events and activities. Our professionally staffed nursery is open from 8:45 - 11:45 AM each Sunday.
Newborn to adults
The Sacrament of Baptism is the sign and seal of God's grace and covenant in Christ. The Baptism of children witnesses to the truth that God’s love claims people before they are able to respond in faith. If you are interested in presenting anyone in your family for Baptism, adult or child, complete this interest form and a pastor will be happy to contact you.
Preschool through Kindergarten
Our preschoolers are treasured members of God's family. The church gifts our little ones age appropriate Bibles each year so they can learn about Jesus at home as well as in their weekly Sunday morning class. Christian education is also offered five days at week to kids age 2-6 at our campus preschool, The Geneva Children's Center. Learn more below.
Middle and High Schoolers
Pastor Ryan and Youth Coordinator EG Tedrow lead the GY gang in Sunday gatherings, mid-week hang outs, and events throughout the year.
Every Sunday, students 6th-12th grade are invited to the Youth Room. There are check-ins, conversations, friendships, and always something good to eat.
UP NEXT: BOOMERS!🏁
1st through 5th grade
Our weekly Geneva Kids Sunday begins with kids joining the adults in the Sanctuary, then move on to classrooms after receiving a blessing from the entire congregation. Vacation Bible School, camp, Snow Day – just to name a few of our activities – are designed to allow your child to form lasting relationships while learning and growing in their faith.
Living on the edge of the Laguna Woods, Geneva is blessed with a congregation full of mature Christians with love and wisdom to share. Playing to our strengths, we surround 1st through 5th graders with a sticky web of healthy, loving intergenerational relationships. Squad 51 allows a child to choose 5 adults to become their "Squad". The Squad's then surrounds them with prayer, support and friendship. The results are priceless! Contact Pastor Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your child to become involved.
PARENTS & FAMILIES
Programs & support
We know that as a parent your time is stretched thin, you’re hungry for good community, and you’d like a break every once in a while. At Geneva, we seek to meet you in these places with accessible classes from engaging speakers on topics like parenting and marriage. We help springboard your child’s faith with ways to make what they learn a reality in your home. We love to give you that time off with Parent’s Night Out. Finally, we host opportunities to connect with other families and generous older adults of faith who want nothing more than to encourage you along the way.
