Children’s Ministry

At Leighton, we believe that children are a gift from God.

We also believe that children should feel safe and protected while they are at church. That is why each person who is involved in Children’s Ministry attends a child protection class and undergoes a thorough background check. Children are an important part of our church family. Check out the ministries offered just for kids!


Nursery services are not being offered for the time being due to the Coronavirus.

Children’s Church

From October through May, kids ages 3 thru 2nd Grade have a worship time all of their own. During the morning worship service, the children are dismissed to Children’s Church where they sing songs, hear Bible stories, and make crafts that tie in with the Bible story. Children’s Church leads right in to the Sunday School hour from 11:00 am-Noon.

Sunday School

Sunday School is not being held for the time being due to the Coronavirus.

Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30 p.m. from October 9th thru March kids age 3 through 6th Grade are invited to Kids Worship.  If your child enjoys Vacation Bible School, then they’ll love Kids Worship!  It’s like Vacation Bible School every week!  Kids will rotate between games, crafts, Bible teaching, snacks and music.  There’s no cost to participate!
