Jesus is our lead story in every room of our House
In fact, He’s our only story – even in bloom. We want to lean in with the families of our House who are raising a generation of children to know and walk in a relationship with Jesus. We want to see the children in our bloom environment not only bloom and grow physically but also in faith as they learn basic truths about who Jesus is.
Starting Sunday, September 12, bloom will be meeting during the 9:30 gathering at The Mark! The Mark is located in the Wonder Bread Building directly behind the Howard Theatre (641 S St NW, Washington, DC 20001). We will have Door Holders available to escort you down our bloom + Passion Kids pathway and up to our bloom + Passion Kids environment!
We will have parking available specifically for families in the parking deck neighboring the UNCF building and across the bloom + Passion Kids pathway (alley to the right of the Howard Theatre). Drive up the bloom + Passion Kids Pathway from S Street NW and we will guide you into the parking deck.
We’ve created a place with your children in mind
We’ve designed our bloom environment very intentionally to allow worship and teaching to come alive for even the tiniest babies in our House. Each child is assigned to a bloom room based on either age or stage of development. In this season, while we aren't meeting in-person, we have created age-specific gatherings for your little ones to enjoy at home.
Become a Door Holder
We have the best Door Holders around who are passionate about helping every child who enters the doors of bloom feel seen, accepted, and more importantly, seen, loved and accepted by Jesus. All of our Door Holders have undergone a thorough screening process of interviews, background checks and training.Become a Door Holder

Frequently Asked Question
During which gatherings is bloom available?
During the COVID-19 season, we are offering age-specific content on Passion Kids Online.
When is my child promoted to the next room in bloom?
Children ages 6 weeks up to 2 years old are promoted developmentally. Children ages 2 to 5 years old are promoted annually in the fall.
What is the bloom well child policy?
For the safety + wellness of all, children who show signs of sickness will not be allowed into the bloom environment. We require that children be fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications) before entering bloom. This is for the health and protection of all children, families, and Door Holders. You are encouraged to bring your child back to us as soon as he or she is well. If an illness is discovered after a child is in the environment, your child will be separated from the other children and a member of our Staff Team will contact you.
