In our children’s ministry, our aim is to cultivate the church’s youngest generation of disciples through Biblical teaching and care. We believe that Scripture is clear that parents are the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, and our hope is to partner with parents in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process.  Our aim is to help build a strong, gospel-centered foundation for their kids.

Sunday Resources

  • Nursery

    For infants three months to one year, the nursery is designed to care for the needs of the very young children while providing a gospel-centered atmosphere that is engaging and safe. To better serve your family, we ask that you leave one diaper for your child and have our diaper bag labeled with your child’s name. If you would like for volunteers to bottle feed, please have the bottle labeled and review any feeding instructions weekly with volunteers.

  • Walkers

    For one and two year old toddlers, this classroom provides gospel-centered care and free play with intentional story time from the Jesus Story Book Bible.

  • Pre-K & Elementary

    For ages 3 years through 5th grade, an age appropriate lesson will be taught each week from The Gospel Story Bible’s curriculum, along with fun activities. Each week we will ask and answer a question from New City Catechism, practice a monthly memory verse, and participate in worship.

  • Family Devotional Resources

    We desire to come alongside parents to help them craft their own approach to family discipleship at home. We recommend adding The Gospel Story Bible and The Jesus Story Book Bible to your library. New City Catechism can be found at www.newcitycatechism.com. Choose “Child Mode” and “ESV Bible.”

  • Check-in and Pick-up

    The Portico Kids check-in desk opens at 10:15am. We encourage you to arrive at that time so that children are settled into classrooms by 10:30am and you can prepare for worship. The check-in desk closes at 10:45am. Please pick up your children promptly after service ends with your security tag in hand.

  • Safety & Security

    All Portico Kids volunteers complete a background check before entering a classroom. Only scheduled Portico Kids volunteers in yellow shirts are to enter the classrooms. Teachers in the Pre-K & Elementary room are covenant members of Portico Church.
