THE FIRST LESSON IN PARENTING IS TO REMEMBER THAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN, AND YOU CAN EXPECT THEM TO BEHAVE AS SUCH.

All Souls Kids is designed to equip and partner with families as you seek to invest in the spiritual wholeness of your children. 


We value the role of kids in our community and are committed to cultivating an environment where they feel known, loved and respected.

We intend to draw kids into an engaging, enjoyable, and provocative encounter with the gospel using language familiar to them. We encourage them to learn to ask good questions in the discovery of who they are and who God is. And our hope is that their lives would be shaped dramatically by the gospel, building a foundation of love, wholeness, purpose, and hope that shapes their lives (and those around them) for years to come!

Because worship is a celebration of grace, not a theological lecture, children of all ages are encouraged to join us at anytime during the service–– we are used to having them around! We also offer a safe place for kids to be together during worship.


A brief sketch of what the Bible teaches about our kids:

  1. + Children are a gift from God and valuable members of the community.

  2. + Children, just like grown-ups, are desperate for Christ’s redeeming love.    

  3. + Children can grow in faith and learn to make wise choices.

  4. + Children love to laugh and have fun.


SUNDAY MORNING CLASS DETAILS


Nursery (non-walkers) and Toddlers (1-2 yrs): Both rooms are open through the entire worship service. Little ones receive excellent care in a safe, peaceful space set up specifically for our babies and toddlers. Please sign your child in and out on the provided clip-board when you arrive and pick up. You will be contacted during worship, if needed.  

3-year-olds, Pre-K (4-5 yrs), and Kindergarten: Children begin in worship, and are dismissed midway to these dynamic and fun classes. Kids will receive excellent care as they play, sing, read, do crafts, and have a nut-free snack. The Jesus Storybook Bible is our primary teaching tool. Please sign your child in and out on the provided clip-board when you drop-off and pick-up.

1st-2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, and 4th-5th Grade: Kids begin in worship and are dismissed midway to class where they will learn and discover in a language and style more suitable to young, growing hearts and minds. Our instruction is framed around a cyclical exploration of key Biblical truths and gospel realities. Students are brought upstairs by their teachers to rejoin their families after worship (except for the 4th-5th Grade Class, which rejoins their families before the Lord’s Supper).


Middle and High School students

We desire to be a community where each of us experiences significant, lasting relationships that would highlight the active presence of Jesus in the lives of His people, and where we would encounter Jesus in ways that will shape our understanding and experience of His grace for the rest of our lives. And this is true regardless of age. Middle and high schoolers are invited to stay in worship to explore, question, and reflect alongside adults.  

Because we believe we grow best in the context of relationship, we are committed to coming alongside middle and high school students through monthly, age-specific Growth Groups on Sunday evenings, geared towards laughing, playing, sharing, exploring, serving, studying, praying and growing together. If you have a middle or high school student, or would like to get involved, please contact us.

Additionally, Young Life in West Seattle has many opportunities for youth to connect, and to explore the gospel. To learn more, please contact Area Director Alison Bray, or Shane Hopkins, local coordinator of YL’s ministry to middle school students, Wyldlife.
