Sunday School

Meets on Sunday mornings from 9:45 – 10:40. We have two Sunday school classes for children.

Our younger group (non-readers) will be experiencing God and Jesus with a variety of “hands-on” lessons. Our older (readers) group will be paralleling Pastor Dave’s sermon series on the I AM statements of Christ.

We will be creating a book that includes the child’s description of themselves (I AM a …), the descriptions Jesus gives of himself through his I AM statements, how Jesus fulfilled all the elements of the Tabernacle, and how Jesus describes us.

Class 1 – Room 105    Pre-readers  (those who aren’t reading yet)

Class 2 – Room 203    Readers  (Those who can read and help read)


Children’s Time

Each Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. worship service there is a children’s time early in the service where all children are invited to join up front for a sharing moment. Following Children’s Time, all children ages 3 years – 3rd grade are invited to go to Kids First Worship.


Kids First Worship

Meets during the 11:00 service each Sunday. In May we will continue our focus on “Easter and Beyond.” Jesus appeared to many people after his Resurrection and before his Ascension. Each one was an encounter filled with love, restoration and empowerment.

  • May 22 – Jesus’ Ascension
  • May 29 – NO KFW (Memorial Weekend)

Kids First Worship is our version of Children’s Church. It is not equal to Sunday School, but a Worship Experience designed just for kids. We sing songs of the faith from all generations, and pray.  We experience the Bible story through the Bible itself, video messages, art, games and science.
