Infants and Toddlers

You can trust your children to our loving and qualified volunteer nursery staff available during Sunday School as well as Sunday morning worship service. Young ones enjoy a safe, clean, and fun environment with caring adults who nurture young children as they discover how much God truly loves them! Children begin to take their first steps toward their walk with Jesus through music and play.

Our nursery is a protected environment where parents are required to check-in and check-out their children on Sunday mornings. You don't have to worry if you'll be needed while you're away. During the adult worship services, you can be notified through our number notification system.





We want every preschooler to know that Jesus made them, Jesus loves them, God sent Jesus to die for them, and God's Word is trueOur caring, dedicated and loving teachers will explore these Bibical truths through the use of structured play, God's Word, crafts, sensory bins and hands on activities. We are passionate about engaging the hearts and minds of children and helping parents lay the foundation of a life of discipleship. We believe it is never too early to start sharing the good news of Jesus with our children. 



Judson KIDS exists to partner with parents, to stand with you in building a spiritual foundation that will lead your child into a personal relationship with Jesus.   It's our desire that children will come to know of God's love for them and be equipped to advance the kingdom of God in their world.  We pray children will know that God is real and active in their lives, experience the power of prayer, grow in their knowledge and application of God's Word, and establish a faith foundation that will last a lifetime.

Prime Time

Our meeting times have changed! 

Age 3 (potty-trained) to 3rd grade: 4:00-5:00PM

4th-8th grade: 6:30-7:30PM

Kids are in the prime of their lives for growth and development. What could be better than developing a knowledge and understanding of the Creator of the world? In an age of e-learning, it is so important for children to experience social experiences that allow them to connect to others and to God’s Word through interactive teaching, creative activities, and incredible games! It’s guaranteed to be the prime time of your child’s week! Please note, we have added new meeting times in order to create safe spaces that allow for social distancing.

Now is the time. Gear up for prime.


Preschool Play

Thursday Mornings (bi-weekly)
10:00 - 11:00am Infants - Age 5 with a guardian

We believe play opens a child's mind, allowing us to sneak in seeds of truth; God loves you, God made you, God sent Jesus to die for you, and God's Word is true. At Preschool Play we connect playtime with Jesus and anchor our preschoolers to the truth found in God's Word. Each month discover a new theme to explore, simple ways to connect with your preschooler, storytime, and lots and lots of playing. We meet twice a month on Thursdays through the duration of the school year. Your preschooler wasn't made to sit; they were made to play! So let's play together! 


Kinder Play

Thursday Mornings (bi-weekly)
10:00 - 11:00am Kindergarten children with a guardian (and little brothers & sisters)

Your kindergartener is still made to play. So let's continue to connect playtime to God's Word. Each month we will sing, dance, move, play, explore and socialize while continuing to build a foundation of faith with your child. Not only will we remind them that Jesus made them, Jesus loves them, God sent Jesus to die for them, they will learn that God has a plan for them. God's plan for them starts now! Kinder Play will give you practical tools, activities and ideas to help point them to Jesus! In addition, it's a great excuse to get off the screen for a short break, see some friends, and have a lot of fun!


Kidz Konnect

Sunday Mornings
9:00 & 10:30am

Infants - 5th Grade

The goal and the heart of Kidz Konnect is to connect kids to Jesus. We aim to do this through a variety of different teachers and teaching methods; digging into God’s Word and discovering His Truths for our lives. There is a short Kids Konnect teaching segment during every family worship service (online and in-person). We also offer a Kids Konnect class just for kids on Sunday mornings during the  worship service. Once you check-in at the cart in the lobby, you may find a spot in the auditorium to worship with your family. There are family tables (where you will find crafts and other engaging activities) or plenty of row seating available. Pay attention as we worship God together through song, prayer, and communion, and MORE. Kids are dismissed for class before the sermon begins (generally during the offering/announcement time). 

Girls of Grace

Meets Monthly, January – May

3rd – 6th grade

This ministry encourages young woman to embrace the beauty of being a daughter of the King. Through a series of activities girls create masterpieces, practice basic kitchen skills, and are challenged to pursue the calling of becoming a woman after God’s own heart. Our last meeting features our annual Mother’s Day Tea where girls are taught proper etiquette, practice hosting a party, and experience a memorable morning out with mom.


Band of Bros

Meets Monthly, August – November

3rd – 8th grade

Is there a pre-teen boy in your life with an excessive amount of energy, a never ending thirst for junk food, and a keen appreciation for bodily noises and potty humor?

God's Love
God's Grace
God's perfect plan for each and every one of them

No secret handshakes needed to join this boys only club.
