This is the message we pray is conveyed every time you engage with our children’s ministries.
Our goal is to communicate Godʼs love and grace for every child from birth through the elementary years. We seek to continually share the one big story of the Bible – God’s great rescue plan in Jesus – in ways that resonate with children so they might always desire and grow in relationship with our risen and living Lord. Join us in this multi-faceted ministry as we see the wonder of God, discover who He is, and experience life with Him together.
During Sunday Morning Worship at 8:30am and 11:00am
Children ages 4 through 1st grade
Children’s Worship dismissed directly from the service. Leaders escort children down from the sanctuary just prior to the sermon.
Children’s Worship teaches children the purpose and practice of worship. Using a modified order of worship, kids sing and pray in addition to memorizing and learning the meaning of the Apostles Creed, Lord’s Prayer, and Doxology. There is a Scripture lesson each week in the form of a children’s sermon.
Children should be picked up from the lower level immediately after service.
Sundays at 9:45 AM
Sunday School helps our children learn the story of God’s fantastic dealings with people, the way He has worked to bring us to Himself, and continues to work in the world today.
Sunday School classes vary in topic and activity depending on age, but all classes include Scriptural teaching, Bible memory opportunities, and a variety of hands-on activities to communicate Biblical truths. Classes offered are:
1st-6th Graders meet together in the Heartland Room for the first 30 minutes of singing, large group teaching, and announcements. Children then break into small group teaching and reinforcement activities for the remainder of the hour.

Previous units have included Board Games, Bible Art, Bible Science, Cooking with Kids Praise, and Happy Campers.
