We strive to include children in all aspects of faith and worship at Brown Memorial. While we take our responsibility to nurture children seriously, we also see them as models of discipleship in their authenticity, curiosity and spirited search to understand God.

We offer many ways for children to be involved in the life and faith of the church. For more information about the opportunities listed below, or to volunteer with our Children’s Ministry, contact Rachel Cunningham.

Sunday Morning Classes – Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am

Two girls hold hands while the Sunday morning Bible study class stands in a circle and says a prayer.

All children’s classes (Pre-K through 4th grade) are team-taught by volunteers in a classroom setting. Our classes focus on foundational understandings of Bible stories and our Christian traditions. The Pre-K through 4th grade classes meet at the Mount Royal Playground (weather permitting). Sunday morning classes do not meet over the summer (Memorial Day – Labor Day).

Worship Leadership

Children, typically 2nd-5th grade, are invited to serve as worship leaders by acolyting or providing instrumental music.

Trips and Retreats

Three girls canoe during the church's annual weekend retreat.

Children and their families are invited to participate in fellowship activities throughout the year, including cookouts, the annual All Church Retreat and the Pejuhutazizi Family Learning Camp in the summer.
