Children’s Ministry

Our Mission:

Our desire is to share the love of Jesus Christ with every child we meet. We want to raise disciples who have a strong Biblical foundation and who are bold in sharing their faith with others. Providing a safe, fun, and loving environment for all children is one of our top priorities.

 SUNDAY SCHOOL – 9:15 a.m.

Sunday School is divided into age appropriate classes.  All children must be checked in at the Children’s welcome desk where the parents will receive a pick-up slip that matches their child’s. The names and ages of the classes are posted by all the classroom doors.  If you are unable to find your classroom, there will be someone at the welcome desk who is more than happy to assist you.

Children ages 4yrs – 5th grade begin Sunday school in a fun and energetic large group time where they will have worship, prayer, and an introduction to the lesson for the day. After Sunday School, these children return to the large room where all of them are to be picked up before the 10:30 service.

Children ages 3 and under will go directly to their Sunday School classrooms upon arrival, and will remain there until they are picked up by a parent.

Our Sunday School teachers are committed to serving our Lord through Sunday School. Children are introduced to Jesus through Bible stories, Bible truths and prayer.

Children ages 4 and under are promoted on birthdays, children in Kindergarten-5th grade are promoted the 1st Sunday of August.

SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP

Children’s Church is for children ages 3 yrs thru 3rd Grade.  This allows preschoolers and younger children to worship at their level. They are offered hands-on learning activities and Bible stories. We will have different themed series and fun events throughout the year. If your child is 4 years or older, and is in Sunday School, we ask that you pick them up and keep them in the main worship service with you until they are dismissed for children’s church. This enables families to spend time together during the morning worship service and it also allows children to see their parents and others around them worshiping and praising.

 NURSERY IS PROVIDED DURING ALL SERVICES.

Our “Bed Babies” Nursery is equipped with a paging system so that we can locate you in the event your child needs your attention.  At your arrival, please check in at the Children’s Welcome desk to receive your pager.
