At Bruen Chapel, we are committed to welcoming, cherishing, and guiding children of all ages in the faith and make the littlest attendees feel welcome. We believe that involving children in our worship, church activities, and missions is the best way to expose them to the Christian faith and nurture them in Christ’s teachings as they prepare to apply them in their own lives.
During our Sunday worship services, we have a nursery for children under four, though you are also welcome to keep your child in the sanctuary during the service. There is a short children’s moment and even a small table at the back of the sanctuary for coloring and quiet play during worship. Activity boxes are also available; just ask an usher!
The church has a wonderful playground out back where we have our weekly Child’s Play gathering for kids six and under. It’s a great chance for parents in the Merrifield area to come out and meet others with children nearby. Child’s Play will start back up in the spring when the weather warms up.
Bruen Chapel is also the site for the Montessori School of Cedar Lane, which has provided an excellent preschool education to three, four, and five year olds since 1972.
