Sunday Mornings for Children

Children of all ages are welcome in our worship services.

Activity bags are available at the doors to the sanctuary. Children's Time is part of each service and invites children down front for a special message from our Director of Children's Ministry.

Nursery and Sunday school are offered during each worship hour.

2nd - 5th grade Sunday school will offer a fresh approach for children to learn and experience Bible stories and lessons in new and exciting ways. Our method opens the door for multiple generations within families, as well as other kind-hearted volunteers, to build relationships and share faith with our kids. There is a place for everyone to get involved!

  •  One bible story taught for a full month for deeper understanding
  •  Hands on activities in art, cooking, drama, games, movie connection, storytelling and science
  •  Volunteers sign up to teach one lesson for a full month to a different grade level each week
  •  Children and teachers experiencing God together
