Check out the new childrens events!
Park Street Church loves kids! Our attitude is the same as Christ Jesus’s, who welcomed children and prayed for them, saying, “Let the little children come to me...for to such belong the Kingdom of Heaven” (Luke 18:16). Big kids, little kids, funny kids, quiet kids, ornery kids, kids with disabilities—there is no better place for them than Park Street Church.
Our goal in Children’s Ministry is to help kids become good friends while they seek after God together. We encourage our children to participate in worship through attendance of sanctuary services with their parents, through Children’s Church programs and through participation in our choirs. Kids enjoy fellowship activities on Friday nights and in our summer Kidsweek program. Excellent teaching engages them on Sunday mornings and on Sunday nights in our Christian Formation classes.
