OUR VISION

The vision of Tapestry Community Church (TCC) is to live for the glory of Christ that the world may see our joyous hope as we love God, love people, and reach the world with the gospel.  As a result, the goal for the TCC children’s ministry is to strive to offer a God glorifying, Bible saturated Nursery and  Sunday School classes  Our desire is that the children’s ministry will be a launching pad for nurturing the faith of the next generation.

NURSERY

Our nursery is a place for children (up to 48 months) to learn simple truth statements as they form language skills, as well as a place where they hear foundational Bible stories. Our desire is to minister to the youngest in our church and to partner with parents as they train up their children in the Lord. During the designated lesson time, the teacher will pray with and for each individual child. The Nursery ministry is using the Children Desiring God curriculum called A Sure Foundation.

CHILDREN IN THE WORSHIP SERVICE

God-centered worship is extremely important in the life of Tapestry Community Church. We approach the Sunday morning worship time with great seriousness and earnestness and expectancy. One of the ways we reflect this truth to our children is by welcoming them into the most central, most regular, most valuable, and most corporate activity of the church. When we encourage families to worship together, we communicate to the children that they are a part of the congregation and, as such, should be included when the church gathers to worship.

The presence of children also serves as a reminder to the church of its responsibility to nurture the faith of the next generation. We believe that children should be active participants in our worship service from the opening prayer to the benediction. Beginning at age 4 we heartily encourage parents to bring them into the service. We know that this effort comes with challenges and difficulties for the children, their parents, and those sitting around them. However, we are eager for children and their parents to feel and experience our warmest welcome into the service, and we are eager for everyone to be able to engage in the worship service with minimal distractions. A child does not instantly understand how to behave in a corporate worship service. It requires training and discipline. A good resource to help train your children is found here: Strategies for Engaging Children in the Worship Service.

We also provide a children’s bulletin to help your child listen to the sermon. For a better understanding of our philosophy of children's ministry, please listen to the following three-part sermon series on "Children and the Covenant Community":

SUNDAY SCHOOL

All curriculum up through 8th grade is from Truth78.com.

Four year olds and Kindergarten: Jesus What a Savior

1st and 2nd grade: ABCs of God

This study for children on the greatness and worth of God uses the alphabet as a framework for learning the attributes of God and other terms that describe His character.

3rd and 4th grade: In the Beginning... Jesus

This study takes students through a chronological journey through the Bible, looking for key clues that point to Jesus and His death on the cross.
