About ImagoKids

 

At Imago Dei we believe that children are an essential part of the body of Christ, and that they, together with the whole body, hear from God as they come to know Jesus.

ImagoKids is a safe and engaging worship experience that allows our young members to learn about the Father’s love, to come to know Jesus as their Lord and provide them the space to hear from Him through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.


Nursery: Ministering to our members Ages 0-3

Nursery is offered for children 0 to 3 years of age. Our staff loves spending time with your little ones as they know they are ministering to some of our most important members!   

If you are planning on leaving your child in the nursery at any point in the service, please check them in before the start of service at 8:30AM.  Once they have a name tag and security code they can come and go from the nursery as needed.  If you are running late, just ask a nursery attendant for assistance.


Atrium: formation for Imagokids Ages 3-7

Here at ImagoKids we use an approach to Christian formation called Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS).  We meet in a specially prepared space called the “Atrium,” where teachers and students alike come together to hear the voice of the Good Shepherd through multi-sensory Scripture presentations, contemplative work and times of prayer.  The curriculum is rooted in Scripture and explores the rich meaning of the liturgical tradition of the church.

We believe that the children in our body are able to hear from the Holy Spirit and that they already have a relationship with the Good Shepherd. God is a mysterious being, who chooses relationship and union with His children. Children are also something of a mystery as they grow and interact with the world around them differently than adults. We are excited to prepare the way for the relationship of these two mysterious beings as we learn to hear the Holy Spirit and receive the gift of God’s love together on Sunday mornings.

CGS is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years old. It begins at 8:30AM, at the beginning of our worship service. Please check your child in at the desk located at the side-door, once they have a name and security tag they can head downstairs to the Atrium any time after 8:20AM. Your child will be returned to you mid-way through the service during the “Peace,” at the start of the Eucharist.
