During the 11:00 worship service, children ages 3 (potty-trained) through 2nd grade have the option of staying in worship or attending Children’s Church. Children who wish to attend Children’s Church will leave the sanctuary immediately following children’s time. We have activity bags at each entrance to the sanctuary to occupy those who choose to stay in worship.
SUNDAY SCHOOL | 9:45 am
Preschool through 5th grade
Our Sunday school classes are currently using the “Hands on Bible” curriculum. The Bible gives us lots of examples of how Jesus taught, using everyday objects like coins, fish, and plants to help people remember the truths he shared with them. Hands on Bible does the same thing. Using common everyday “gizmos”, children will understand important Bible truths. Because children will experience what they are learning, it sticks with them and they’ll remember these lessons.
kindergarten & 1st grade
2nd & 3rd grade
4th & 5th grade
Children ages 3 (potty-trained) and up are invited to participate in the children’s choir lead by Cade Baccus. Practices take place on Sundays 12:00 – 12:15 pm in the upper room. The children’s choir periodically performs at our 11:00 am worship service. Children’s choir takes a break for the summer (June through August).
Parents of children in 5th grade or younger must pick up their children from their Sunday school classroom or from Children’s Church. Children will not be allowed to leave the room on their own or with siblings. If you need alternative arrangements for the pick-up of your child, please speak with your child’s Sunday School teacher.

FAMILY ADVENT JOURNEY
Thursdays, November 30 – December 21
Join us for an inter-generational Family Advent Journey. This is for families with children of all ages, grandparents, older adults and singles who want to experience Advent in a new and creative way.
We’ll have four weekly 1-hour sessions on Thursdays, November 30 through December 21 at 6:00 pm. We will share a light meal then start on the Advent Journey. The Advent Journey consists of engaging discussion, time for reflection, and giant posters to color – one for each week of Advent. Each session will last one hour. We would love for you to commit to all 4 weeks, but you can attend whichever weeks that your schedule allows.
