Nursery is available for children ages birth through 5 for Sunday services at 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am, and for small groups and weeknight classes as requested in advance.
Preschool Sunday School focuses on one key truth all month. It engages the five senses, and helps children master the concept through creative activities. The goal is to help children understand and believe: 1) God Made Me, 2) God Loves me, and 3) Jesus wants to be my Friend Forever. This curriculum encourages children to talk to God any time, any place. It also provides parents with ideas for conversation with their child at home.
Sunday School meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00 am for school-aged children from kindergarten through 4th grade. Our curriculum is built around three Basic truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” The three basic truths are: 1) I need to make the wise choice, 2) I can trust God no matter what, and 3) I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Each month, the Bible stories introduce a core virtue (such as wisdom, kindness, etc.) and a memory verse. Each week, children will bring home suggestions for devotions and ideas for conversation with parents at home. Elementary classes meet downstairs in our children’s wing.

WOW is Children having Wonderful Opportunities on Wednesdays!
Come and join us! We join in Christian fellowship by having a meal with one another, talking about our daily lives with one another and learning about the Lord with one another! We dig into different topics in the Bible together. Each session we tend to have a major focus from the Bible. Then we break down that major focus into different things the Bible teaches us to use in our daily lives. We want the Lord to be in our Children’s lives on a daily basis…to be best friends!
The evening is filled with laughter and chatter from the children learning about one another and learning about the Lord! Wednesday nights from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm for Kindergarten through 4th grades.
