Kids — Downers Grove Community Church


It’s all about the kids. Okay, maybe it’s not all about the kids, but the kids play a huge role in our ministry.

We learned a long time ago that in order to make a safe, comfortable place for the adults to gather we first needed to make a safe, comfortable place for the kids. The children’s and youth programs at DGCC are geared towards spiritual growth and age-appropriate learning. We want the kids, no matter what their ages, to start learning and praying and loving in the way that Christ modeled for us. Because giving kids a firm foundation in Christianity is not just our choice as adults, it’s our responsibility.

Children’s Sunday School

Sitting through an hour-long adult worship service can be pretty tough for the young ones. So from September through May, we offer Children’s Worship—a forty-five-minute-long worship service geared towards kids ages 4 through grade 5. The kids sing songs, do crafts, and learn the foundation of Biblical truth. We know that children are the future. We aim to equip them with the Biblical concepts they need to navigate today’s increasingly scary world.
