Offered weekly during the sermon time at the 9am worship hour throughout the entire year. We use the Bible Studies for Life curriculum and kids are taught a different Bible lesson each week and life applications to incorporate the lesson into their daily lives. They also go home with an activity sheet with different family activities to continue learning about the Bible lesson.
Offered weekly during the school year, for pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten through 4th grade, during the 10:30 worship hour. Kids are grouped by grade and have small group and large group instruction based on a particular Bible lesson. The curriculum we use is The Gospel Project. The curriculum is written in a way that students will go through the entire Bible in 3 years. In addition to the Bible lesson, each week kids engage in group activities, work on a scripture memory verse, and complete an activity page focusing on that week’s theme.
Available weekly during the 9am worship hour for 3 and 4-year-olds.
Offered weekly for 3 and 4-year-olds during the 10:30 worship hour. We use the Gospel Light Curriculum. The teachers have a love for early childhood education and teach the class in a way that is age appropriate for each student. Each week the students learn a Bible lesson, engage in age appropriate lesson related activities, and go home with an activity sheet of family activities. The Sunday School class meets during the school year.
We have nursery available for infants and toddlers during both worship hours. We have an infant nursery for babies from birth until age one. In addition, we have a toddler nursery for children from the ages of 1-3. Parents may use their discretion for when to promote their child to the toddler nursery or to the preschool class. We have pagers for parents to take with them in case the nursery staff needs to contact them. Each nursery is equipped with age appropriate toys and diaper changing supplies. There is also a nursing room available for mothers located across the hall from the infant nursery.
This new ministry for 3rd & 4th graders kicks off on Wednesday, October 25th from 6:00 - 7:30pm. Each week we will eat supper together (will be provided), play games, learn about leaders of our faith (with a guest speaker from our church each week joining us), & participate in a service project. The goal of Crew 34 is to grow in relationship with each other, live out our faith by serving, learn about other servant leaders in our church, & have fun! We hope to see you there! If you are unable to pick up your child @ 7:30, there will be leaders staying in the room to play board or card games with those kids until 8:00.
We love kids!
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Our Children's Ministries seek to partner with parents to help their children grow toward maturity in Christ (Eph. 4:13). We desire for children to know and love Jesus, choosing to follow him, accepting him as Lord of their life. We believe that parents are the most important influence in a child's life and that the home is the primary place where faith is nurtured. We believe that it is our role to come alongside parents with resources to help equip them by keeping them informed of what is being taught, by providing family opportunities to connect with their kids throughout the year, and by reinforcing what is being taught at home.
Busy Bags are available at each worship service and include various quiet activities for a child if they stay with their parents. Books and activities are changed every quarter to offer a good variety.
