CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

We believe that the discipling of children occurs primarily with parents in the home. Therefore, our goal in Children's Ministry is to partner with parents to help our children to grow - both in their knowledge of God and His Word and in their relationships with their church family. 


Below you'll find information on each of our weekly programs. For information on special events or upcoming camps, please visit our Facebook page.


Nursery & Preschool


A combined Nursery & Preschool class is currently available at 10:45 each Sunday for children from birth through Pre-K. We strive to provide a safe, secure place for your child to experience God’s love while you attend the Worship Service. Children in the Nursery/Preschool class are taught age-appropriate Bible stories and songs about God.


Elementary

We invite all elementary-aged children (Kindergarten - 5th grade) to join us for our Worship Hour service on Sundays at 10:45 a.m. This service includes age-appropriate worship music, Bible lessons, and activities.



Note: Our children's Worship Hour service is not held on the 1st Sunday of each month. On these Sundays, we invite our elementary students to join their families in the sanctuary for the communion service.


Parent Resources

From September through November our elementary class will be traveling through stories in the Old Testament as we remember God's promise from Genesis 3:15 to send one who would "crush the head" of the serpent. Below you will find resources to use at home as a family. They will reinforce what we are discussing on Sunday mornings.


"The Promise: The Amazing Story of Our Long-Awaited Savior" by Jason Helopoulos is a great resource for this series. We encourage families to pick up a copy of this book from the Children's Ministry.
