Ardmore Kids


All children K–5th grade are invited to participate in curriculum-based learning from Celebrate Wonder each Sunday in room 218 during our worship services! One or two volunteers will walk the children to and from the Sanctuary/Chapel. The children will leave after the Call to Worship (10:00 service)/Church News (11:15 service) and enter back into the service during the Offering. On the first Sunday of each month, children will return to the service before Communion. If you have any questions, please contact Meredith Menius, Director of Christian Education.

During COVID-19, videos will be sent out each Sunday morning with the lesson from Celebrate Wonder. These emails also include activity sheets to go with the lesson, as well as a kid’s worship bulletin for the services that morning. If you would like to be added to the Children’s Ministry email list to receive these and future emails, please email Meredith Menius, Director of Christian Education.
