Children’s Ministry

Sunday School

Sunday School is from 9:45 – 10:40 a.m. in our Education Building. We have two Sunday school classes for children. One for readers and one for pre-readers. Our goal is to have each child experience the love of God through the Bible and a variety of hands-on experiences.

Class 1 – Room 105    Pre-readers

Class 2 – Room 203    Readers

During Sunday School children experience engaging activities that bring the Bible to life. They will not only learn the stories, but ways to apply the principles in their everyday life.

We have had fun learning about Mary and Joseph and traveling with them to Bethlehem. In January we will be focusing on the Wise Men and the baptism of Jesus

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 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. 


Wonderful Wednesday

Sign-up Here!

December was filled with Mary, Joseph, traveling to Bethlehem, and of course baby Jesus. Our January theme is MUSIC. We will be using the story of David, who in addition to slaying Goliath was also an accomplished musician, as a springboard to help us learn what God has to say about music.

January 5 – Notes and Rhythm

January 12 – Singing

                                                           January 19 – Playing Instruments

                                                           January 26 – Dancing

Wonderful Wednesday is a mid-week program that is designed to give children a boost of faith in a loving and safe atmosphere. This year we are focusing on Building Relationships and Making Memories. Each month we will have an overarching theme and Bible focus to guide us in building a relationship with God and one another, and making memories that will span from previous generations to future generations.
