Commonway Kids cares for and ministers to children aged birth to 5th grade every Sunday morning! It is our goal to be able to minister to children entrusted to our care each week to help them experience God in a real way!
Helping kids experience God in a real way!
Nursery / 1S
Birth to 12 months & 1S class (12 to 24 months)
These little ones receive exceptional care during their time in class. Your little one is prayed over in addition to having playtime and singing each week. We know that even at this young age, our children are soaking in so much information! We begin playing games with them to help connect how much God loves them.
"Children see magic because they look for it."
- Christopher Moore
Ages 2 through 5
Our preschoolers engage in worship each week through dancing, singing, big movements, crafts, and imaginative play. The more they can experience God through their senses, the more they process what they are learning! We keep our lessons based around these 3 basic truths that we want our children to know by the time they enter kindergarten:
- God made us
- God loves us
- Jesus wants to be our friend forever
Kindergarten through 5th grade
Elementary students engage in a large group worship environment where they sing and hear a Bible story each week. They then break into age-appropriate small groups where they talk about the Bible story and apply it to their own lives. Weekly lessons are related to 3 basic truths that we want our kids to know by the time they reach middle school:
- I need to make the wise choice
- I can trust God no matter what
- I need to treat others the way I want to be treated

Our registration table and facilities are located in the Muncie Children’s Museum during Commonway Church’s service hours. The Children’s Museum is connected directly to the Horizon Center on the south end of the building.

Jill DuBois is the Director of Commonway Kids and oversees the care and attention of all children each week. Numerous loving and trustworthy volunteers, all of which who have been properly trained, provide the hands-on care and education your child receives.
Several safety procedures, from diaper/bathroom protocols, pick up tags, to fire drills, are in place to ensure that the kids are in a secure and caring environment.
No, Commonway Kids is free for all children of parents who attend a Commonway gathering (regular attendees and guests).
We encourage you to share any specific care instructions you have for your child that will enable us to provide better individualized care for them. When dropping off your child, share any specific instructions at the registration table and they will be passed on to the specific Commonway Kids staff member who will be providing attention and care to your child.
The best way is to subscribe to our email updates here. We also a hold Family Experience meeting each month (usually the first Sunday of the month) following the 10:30 AM whole church gathering. This lasts approximately 20 minutes, and it is a fun and meaningful way for parents and kids to connect together around what we’re learning about all month. We also have a Facebook page, Instagram feed, and Twitter feed that provides many regular updates.
Do you offer materials for parents to continue the lessons their kids are learning at Commonway Kids?
Yes! We have several tools for you to be able to keep the Sunday conversation going all through the week. When you talk about what we learn on Sunday throughout the week, then we can be more effective in being a consistent and comfortable place for your child to be able to ask questions and grow in his/her faith. You can access these here.
