Equipping our Kids to Know Jesus and Live On Mission

At Valley Simsbury we value both age-appropriate teaching for kids and worshipping together as a family. Below are some ways that we partner with you in helping your children engage with the Gospel message.

New Group for Moms of Little Ones

"Moms & Minis Squad" Begins March 4

It's tough work being a mom! This new group, "M&Ms," is designed to build relationships, provide encouragement, and share best mom practices, all with a missional and Gospel focus. It's for moms of kids in preschool and younger, and open to anyone in the neighborhood!


We meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon on scheduled Fridays, beginning March 4, at Valley Simsbury Headquarters (3 Mill Pond Lane, Simsbury)

The gathering is free and childcare is provided.

There's no need to RSVP. Please email Valley Simsbury Children and Family Discipleship Leader Rushika Heinle at

For Kids on Sunday Mornings

We value multi-generational worship that includes all ages children through adults.We believe all children should spend time in worship with their families, and then have the option to participate in age-appropriate breakout classes when available.

Rushika Heinle coordinates our Children’s Ministry. Our goal on Sundays is to provide a safe space that that honors The Master's School requirements and our Valley gathering guidelines.

Children gather at the front of the Outdoor Church area, or in front of their screens at home, to participate in this engaging eight-minute lesson. We call this our Children's Bible Story Time (CBST)

This lesson is a great stepping stone to further teaching or conversation at home during the week.


10:00 a.m. | Worship Begins
10:15 a.m. | Children’s Bible Story Time
10:23 a.m. | Dismissal to Children’s Class
11:10 a.m. | Service ends; pick up children at their class

Our preschool class includes Walkers through Kindergarten. Please register when you arrive for Outdoor Church.

When you arrive, check in your child at the Welcome Table. After the CBST,  accompany your child to the door marked “Preschool Class.”

While we don't currently have a nursery for infants, we do have a changing station in the preschool room.

This is a breakout class for kids in Grades 1-5. Children remain with their families until they are invited to come forward for the Children's Bible Story Time. Activity packets will still be handed out following CBST. Children should either remain with parents at Outdoor Church or attend the breakout  class, but not be unsupervised in the hallways during the service.


Your feedback is valuable as we partner with you in discipling your children. Please contact Rushika, our Children's Ministry Coordinator, or Pastor Mark Woof if you have any questions or concerns. Rushika will be available at the registration table Sunday mornings, or you can always email us at .
