Have Kids?We love children and have many activities for them.
First, we love to see and hear little ones during the service! You are welcome to stay with your kids as you worship. We enjoy the wiggles and noises. We also have plenty of options for you and your families if you’d like to spend some grown-up time in worship.
There are activity bags at the back of the sanctuary in a fabric box next to the entrance doors. Your kids can enjoy coloring pages, quiet toys, stickers, and more.
Also, we have a toy box in the room behind the Sanctuary for kids who need room to roam while you participate in the service.
In addition, we have a playroom and nursery down the hall with toys, books, videos, climbers, rocking chairs, changing table, and more. This room is designed for infants through early elementary (but families are welcome to stay there together). Follow the signs for this fun spot to play!

We’ll have adventures such as playing at SkyZone and picnics at Silver Park. We’ll also have a few afternoon events at Union Avenue with crafts, games, music, and interactive Bible lessons.
On event days, families will meet at the destination to enjoy the fun. Kids in grades 4 and above can be dropped off. Younger kids will need to be accompanied by an adult. Friends are welcome!
Union Avenue Youth Group
On Sunday Evenings, our high school students meet for Youth Group, a time for them to come together and enjoy games, quick and fun lessons, plus a chance to plan their own service projects and fundraisers. We have a blast! We also head out for playtime at places like trampoline parks, bowling, escape rooms, snow-tubing and more!
Each year we do a weekend retreat and also participate in Youth Annual Conference, now being held at Ashland University over a weekend in June. We’d love to have your teen join us!
