Friedens' Ministry to Children & Teens

At Friedens, we take seriously Jesus' call to "let the little children come to me."  As children grow into adolescence, we are dedicated to helping them "own" their faith so they will grow into men and women who follow Jesus throughout their lives.  In addition to ministries specifically geared for children and teens, we seek to equip parents to intentionally disciple their children.

Ongoing Ministries for Children & Teens

These ministries meet during the school year and will resume in September.

  • Sunday School

    Children & Youth

    • For children under 4, nursery is available during Sunday school; this nursery includes Bible activities and enables parents to attend classes as well.
    • Children's Sunday School is for ages 4-4th grade; children meet as a large group for interactive teaching, and then break into smaller groups for age-appropriate discussion, application, and fun.
    • Middle- and High-School Sunday School is discussion-based, helping students understand relevant topics from a biblical perspective.


  • iGnite

    Wednesday-Night Children's Ministry


    iGnite is for children ages 4-4th grade.  It includes singing, games, prayer time, an interactive Bible story, snacks, and the ever-popular "iGnite Store," where children can "spend" tokens they earn throughout the night (or have saved from previous weeks)!  Children from a variety of churches attend iGnite, along with those who have no church background.  It's a high-energy, fun way for children to learn about God! 


  • Unleashed

    Wednesday-Night Youth Ministry


    The core of Unleashed is a Bible study in which 5th-12th graders (in smaller, age-appropriate groups) learn how to follow Jesus faithfully amid a culture that presents many pressures and challenges.  Along the way, students have a lot of fun and build deep, encouraging relationships with one another.
