Children & Youth Ministries 


At Yorktown Vineyard, we value young people! It is our goal that kids learn and experience Jesus for themselves. We want Sunday mornings to be one of the best experiences of your child’s week. Our exciting, interactive and imaginative lessons are designed to reveal the love of Jesus to your children and challenge them to live it out daily. It is our desire that every child come to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We are also committed to partnering with parents to see a spiritual transformation in each child. All Children’s Ministry volunteers are carefully screened and trained to minister to your children. Children worship with their parents during the first part of the service. Upon the completion of the whole group worship time, children are dismissed to their appropriate class.

Children of All ages are welcome to our church.  We have a nursery available during the worship service for the youngest children, a Pre K / Elementary class, and middle school program.

 

Nursery (ages 0-3)

Our nursery is well equipped to engage very young children in God's word through songs, stories and activities. The room is adjacent to the Sanctuary, giving close and easy access during services. Across from the Nursery is a bathroom equipped with a changing table. Experienced members of the congregation take turns nurturing these precious babies and children while parents attend the service.

 

Children’s Sunday School (ages 4-11)

Children are in a classroom environment learning God's word through bible stories, following a hands on arts and crafts that allows them to fully comprehend and apply the bible story to their daily lives. The Sunday class experience provides them with a great Christian foundation equipping them to fully understand the essentials of Christianity. 

 

Youth Ministry (ages 12-18)

The youth ministry teams of Yorktown Vineyard are an engaging and welcoming community for its youth and their friends/family that leads and supports youth on their Christian journeys and inspires joyful service to God and others. The youth ministry of Yorktown Vineyard prepares them for lifelong discipleship and inspires them to carry the love of Christ to Yorktown and the world. The youth ministry team of Yorktown Vineyard is committed to love, nurture, inspire, and equip our youth to be faithful, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. Our youth ministry deliberately guides young people into Christian discipleship by:
