Sunday Programs for all Children Birth to 12th Grade are available during the 11:00 service.

It is our heart to help children begin a journey walking with the Lord and lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ that is not only based on knowledge but is real and applicable to their daily lives.

As teachers and leaders, we endeavor to model our lives so that children will know what it means to be fully alive in Christ.

Nursery: Birth-1st Grade — Please check your children in before proceeding to the service. Check-in happens on the first floor of the Main building (Sanctuary Building).

Our desire is to capture and build on a child’s natural sense of wonder and creativity. They will explore and discover God through stories, games, crafts, music and other special activities. We will express the love of Christ to infants by quickly and tenderly responding to their needs and by providing a safe and clean environment.

Elementary — Elementary Sunday School classes are for 2nd to 5th grade children. We use many different formats to teach including drama, videos, music, hands-on learning, games and small groups.

Youth — Grades 6th through 12th are considered Youth. We have Sunday programs for this age group during the 11:00 service as well as a Wednesday evening program (6th-8th and 9th-12th).

General information:

Preschool: A parent is required to check in each of their children. Please fill out a security label for each child with special instructions and requirements. Both parent and child receive a matching number label. Only the adult with the matching number label may claim the child at the end of service. For security reasons, children will not be released to siblings.

3-4 & 5-K Curriculum: Age appropriate curriculum and class experiences are incorporated to help each child grow in their true identity and grow in a community. To enhance the quality of their church experience and interaction with their social and physical environment, we ask that each child be placed in their age appropriate classroom.
