Sunday Mornings for Children

Please join us online for worship with your family and subscribe to Children's Ministry monthly e-news. We look forward to resuming our usual programs as soon as possible!

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.

Nursery (Birth - 3 years)

A professionally staffed nursery is available for infants through young 3-year-olds, from 8:30 - 12 noon each Sunday.

Children do not move out of nursery classes during the school year, but remain until move-up Sunday in June when they are already 3 or turning 3 on or before September 1.

Each class focuses on one Bible story per month and focuses on a different part of the story each week. Each week includes new, fun activities, crafts, and Sacred Circle time. These classes all meet downstairs with separate classrooms for each age/grade.

Teachers are needed each week! All curriculum is sent in advance to review and provided in the classroom with all necessary materials on the day of the class.

2nd - 6th Grade Sunday School

The rotation model provides us with the opportunity to dive deeper into one topic for a whole month through different activities - crafts, games, cooking, science and video/discussion. All Sunday School participants meet in one room for a discussion/introduction time led by a Children's Ministry Team member.  Then, each grade is sent to their activity/room for that day. These classes meet upstairs. 

Teachers are needed each week! All curriculum is sent in advance to review and provided in the classroom with all necessary materials on the day of the class.

Teachers are Needed!

Sunday school teachers are the most important partners in ministry for helping to raise our children in the church. It takes 35 volunteers to be fully staffed each week. Please consider signing up for one or two weeks each month, or for a full month each semester, or for more! Just use the buttons above to volunteer with your preferred age group. You will make a difference in the life and faith of our children.
