Virginia-Highland Church is dedicated to welcoming everyone, which includes children of all ages and from all types of families. We believe that a vital children’s ministry is an integral part of fulfilling our mission to Do Justice, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly.

Our children’s ministry is guided by our Director of Children’s Ministry, Jocelyn Wildhack. You can learn more about Jocelyn HERE.

On Sunday mornings, we offer a fully staffed nursery from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Our nursery is located through the doors to the right at the front of the sanctuary and across the hall. The childcare staff will welcome you and your children at the door there. Not sure how to find our nursery? Ask any greeter at the front door, and they’ll be happy to guide you.

Children in kindergarten and up are encouraged to stay and participate in worship. We provide worship engagement bags, complete with coloring and items to play with as they pray and sing. Following the Gospel lesson, children are invited to follow the children’s ministry leader through the doors to the right at the front of the sanctuary for age-appropriate Scripture Exploration during the sermon. Children will return to the sanctuary before communion, so that they may partake with their families.

If you are interested in volunteering with our children’s ministry, please email Jocelyn at
