Children are vital to our church family & we offer many ministries to teach & show them Christ’s love and how we are called to share that love with each other. I hope you feel welcome to be a part of our church family. We have so many wonderful events & classes for your child to be a part of. Please call me or stop by, I’d love to meet with you!

Here's some of what we offer:

Sunday School

We offer Sunday school for ages 2 years – 6th grade. Preschool lessons are based on singing, activities & hearing God’s word. We believe these things are important in building a child’s faith foundation at an early age. Kindergarten-5th grade are in our KIDSSHINE program. This program is designed to excite the kids and help them grow using 3 bible truths: Wisdom, Faith & Friendship. Each week the children participate in worship and drama as a large group (K-3, 4-5). They then split up into smaller groups to connect with the stories & learn to apply them to their daily lives. 6th graders meet separately and start the Confirmation curriculum to give a background before going through Confirmation in the Spring. We meet at 10:00 a.m. in the elementary wing.

Children’s Church

Children’s Church is offered on every Sunday during the 9:00 service for children ages 5 years old – 2nd grade. After the praise songs, children are escorted to a separate room where they enjoy a lesson & activity together as a group.

Vacation Bible School

Each year we have a new theme for Vacation Bible School. We share in a week of learning about Jesus through drama, games, crafts, worship & fun! We have an awesome time and the children experience Jesus in a new, enriching way! Children preschool age and up to 4th grade are welcome. Youth & Adults help lead the way!

Nursery

We have 2 nurseries set up at our church. Room 1 is for children ages birth through 18 months and room 2 is for children ages 18 months through age 4.

Children should be checked into the nursery by filling out an information card and letting the caregivers know any special instructions you feel are important for helping your child have a wonderful experience.

What We Have To Offer:

•A positive atmosphere for all children to come and be accepted.

•Love for one another.

•Toys for all children to share.

•Snacks during the 11:00 a.m. Service.

•Smiles to last throughout the week.

Nursery Guidelines

1. All children must be well. If your child has been running fever within 24 hours, please keep them home this week. If fever should occur in our care you will be notified immediately via the nursery pager system, regardless of your location on the property.

2. Make sure all personal items are marked with the child’s name (diaper bag, pacifiers, bottles, cups, toys, etc).

3.If your child needs to be fed, please let the caregiver know what time you expect that to be done.

4.We are happy to help you with potty training. Please let us know what your routine is at home so we can be consistent.

Thank you for trusting us with your child. We know they are a precious gift from God. That is the way we intend to treat them. If for some reason you are unhappy, please let us know. The nursery is a safe haven for the children and their parents.

Comment cards are always available, and calls are always welcomed.
