Families with Children

Families of all sizes, shapes and hues are welcome and cherished at Old South Church. The church provides Christian formation offerings for all ages. First Worship is particularly popular with young families who rise early on Sundays with their little ones.

Old South Church’s children and youth assume leadership for a number of special events throughout the year, including annual Youth Sunday, the All Church Picnic, Reccommitment Sunday Breakfast, Palm Sunday Breakfast, and the Christmas Pageant. They also engage in service projects throughout the year, including fundraisers, toy and clothing drives, and other acts of service.

Visiting for the first time? Email children@oldsouth.org.
