Children

Nursery Care

The Greenhouse

Nursery care for children ages 2 and under is offered during both Sunday morning services and during our Wednesday night gatherings. We have a paging system that offers comfort and security for our parents. In the educational wing, parents and visitors must sign their children in at the check-in site where they will receive their pager and receipt. For security reasons, children will only be released to a parent who has the pager or receipt at the end of the service. We also offer a check-in/out computerized system for regular attenders to sign in all children for safety and security purposes.

Kids Church, 10:30 a.m. Sundays

Kids church is for children ages 3 through 5th grade during our second worship service at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday.

The Garden—Preschoolers meet in rooms 3 and 4 at 10:30 for a time of playing, learning, and singing together. The preschoolers are divided into two classrooms. The 2s and 3s meet in room 3 and the 4s and 5s meet in room 4. The children follow the same schedule each Sunday: play time, bathroom/drink, lesson, snack and discussion, activity, and worship. The preschoolers stay in the same classrooms throughout the morning.

The Orchard—Kindergarten and 1st grade
The Forest—2nd and 3rd grades
The Jungle—4th and 5th grades

Kindergarteners through 5th graders worship with their families in the sanctuary and then are dismissed to
room 10 for a kick off video pertaining to their morning lesson. Then they move to their age-appropriate
class, lesson, and morning activity. We use “Explore the Bible” during our lesson time, a curriculum that
gets kids to dig deep into Scripture and develop a foundation for life transformation.

Midweek Gathering

Wednesday Night Kids: 6:15-7:30 p.m. every Wednesday, September through May. Come join us on Wednesday nights as we worship, pray, and learn together! The Garden
preschoolers meet for a time of play and learning from the curriculum called “Spiritual Life: Kids Sunday School”.

We have separate classes for The Orchard (kindergarten and 1st grade), The Forest (2nd and 3rd grades), and The Jungle (4th and 5th grades). We meet all together in room 10, starting at 6:15. We often pray, memorize scripture or participate in an activity for the first 20 minutes. Then, we move into individual class time, learning from “The Answers in Genesis” curriculum, until 7:30. Don’t miss out. We would love to have you join us.

Additional Information:
We offer annual events such as a Children’s Christmas program in December and Vacation Bible School
in July. Both are events we look forward to each year and have lots of fun leading up to and during
these annual activities!
