Children’s Sunday School & Church
All ages meet in our gym at 10 a.m. and are then divided into their classes by age. Pick-up is from the sanctuary before 11:00 a.m. worship. Using the “Grow, Proclaim, Serve” curriculum, our teachers teach kids about their faith through Bible stories, media, games, crafts and other fun activities appropriate for each age. Our goal is for our children to grow in mind, body, and spirit as they learn the all-important stories of our faith.
During the last half of worship, kids age 3 years through kindergarten join together for a time of study of scripture and fellowship that is geared toward them. Like adult worship, Children’s Church is grounded in the beloved Bible stories and lessons. Parents pick their children up from room 101 after worship.
We have a nursery available during worship, and we welcome infants aged 6 weeks through 2 years. Click here for details. All nursery staff are CPR and first aid certified and have been background checked.

The Joy Jammers (grades 1 – 5): Children in grades 1 – 5 have the opportunity to participate in our Joy Jammers choir. This group sings in several worship services throughout the church year.

Following Wednesday Night Supper from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m., 3 year olds – 3rd graders are escorted from the fellowship hall to the gym for 30 minutes of activities and play. Then, children engage in a lesson from the Bible and learn how it relates to their lives outside of church. We will resume Discover Club in August.
The Edge is a ministry for children in 4th through 5th grades from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. This group meets for its own dinner together at 6:00 pm. After dinner, kids receive a scripture lesson about how to live with God on the edge. Their evening is rounded out with game time in the gym. We will resume Edge in August.
